Rumors about the upcoming iPhone 15 lineup are swirling, and according to an alleged Foxconn worker who spoke to ITHome, we might see some notable improvements in battery capacity. The source claims that all the iPhone 15 models will feature significantly larger batteries compared to their predecessors.
If the information is accurate, the iPhone 15 will reportedly come with an 18% larger battery, while the iPhone 15 Plus and iPhone 15 Pro will see a 14% increase in battery size. The iPhone 15 Pro Max, on the other hand, is expected to have a 12% larger battery. These changes suggest that Apple is prioritizing enhanced battery life across its flagship smartphone range.
Let’s take a closer look at the alleged battery capacity changes:
- iPhone 13: 3,227mAh ➜ iPhone 14: 3,279mAh ➜ iPhone 15: 3,877mAh
- iPhone 13 mini: 2,406mAh ➜ iPhone 14 Plus: 4,325mAh ➜ iPhone 15 Plus: 4,912mAh
- iPhone 13 Pro: 3,095mAh ➜ iPhone 14 Pro: 3,200mAh ➜ iPhone 15 Pro: 3,650mAh
- iPhone 13 Pro Max: 4,352mAh ➜ iPhone 14 Pro Max: 4,323mAh ➜ iPhone 15 Pro Max: 4,852mAh
If these rumored capacity changes turn out to be true, the iPhone 15 Plus would extend its lead in battery capacity over the Pro Max model even further. Surprisingly, the iPhone 15 Pro would still feature the smallest battery in the lineup.
While the source’s track record remains unverified, the reported battery capacities do seem plausible. Furthermore, it aligns with the speculation that this year’s iPhone models will be slightly thicker, allowing more internal space for larger batteries. Coupled with the efficiency improvements of the anticipated A16 and A17 Bionic chips, it’s highly likely that the entire iPhone 15 lineup could offer significant battery life improvements.
In addition to the battery enhancements, ITHome also shed light on other intriguing details coming from Foxconn. According to information circulating on Weibo, the iPhone 15 Pro is rumored to start with 256GB of storage as the standard configuration. This would mark a doubling of the current 128GB base storage option. The discrepancy in storage capacity between the Pro and non-Pro models could be a significant distinguishing factor, as the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus are expected to stick with the 128GB base storage configuration.

As we eagerly await official announcements from the company, it’s safe to say that Apple fans and tech enthusiasts alike will be closely monitoring any further leaks and revelations about the upcoming flagship smartphones.
