iPhone 13 Pro teardown reveals its battery capacity and shows the assembly of the smartphone from the inside. The fresh teardown reveals that the iPhone 13 Pro packs a 3,095mAh battery. This is a significant increase from last year's iPhone 12 Pro battery — which was at 2,815mAh. Apple claims that the iPhone 13 Pro should last 1.5 hours longer on a single charge compared to its predecessor. The teardown shows that the iPhone 13 Pro integrates an L-shaped battery.
Chinese blogger WekiHome has taken the iPhone 13 Pro and done an extensive disassembly to show the viewers its internals. The blogger uses pressure and a wick to remove the back panel and exposes the phone's innards. The L-shaped battery is immediately revealed. The iPhone 12 Pro had a rectangular-shaped battery in comparison. The L-shaped battery on the iPhone 13 Pro is said to be made by supplier Sunwoda Electronic Co.
The video goes on to show that the display as well as the RAM has been supplied by Samsung and that the main supplier for flash memory is Japan's Kioxia. The iPhone 13 Pro also utilises Qualcomm's X60 modem for 5G connectivity and is seen to have a slightly smaller Taptic Engine that that of the iPhone 12 Pro. The internal components of the iPhone 13 Pro are largely similar to the iPhone 12 Pro, but a lot of small tweaks have been introduced. The detailed teardown video can be seen below:
