iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro drain 20% faster on 5G

It’s been revealed now that the new iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro models face a 20% faster drain in battery on 5G. It means they will run two hours less when compared to the usage of 4G.

According to Macrumors, a report by Tom’s Guide has shown that iPhone 12 and 12 Pro run two hours less on 5G, which means a decrease of 20% than 4G.

As per the report, a test was carried on both the new phones from Apple. In the test, they were used constantly on 5G and then on 4G.

iPhone 12 and 12 Pro battery drain test results

The regular iPhone 12 was first used over 5G continuously and lasted only eight hours and 25 minutes. And the 12 Pro ran out of battery in nine hours and six minutes.

Then they were used over 4G, where the 12 lasted for 10 hours and 23 minutes. That’s quite impressive and expected, too, considering that iPhone 11 is great in the battery.

On the other hand, iPhone 12 Pro also did great over 4G, running for 11 hours and 24 minutes. And that is also good to know about this premium model.

But overall, the test clearly showed that both 12 and 12 Pro would drain faster if used on 5G. Expect a sharp decline of 20% if you are thinking of switching from a 4G network.

Comparatively speaking, Tom’s Guide revealed that regular 12 is slightly weaker, but not completely, in battery usage. Because iPhone 11, last year, ran over 4G for 11 hours and 16 minutes.

Surprisingly, iPhone 12 Pro has outplayed its predecessor, iPhone 11 Pro, that ran for 10 hours and 24 minutes on 4G.

The test has also cleared the doubts over the battery performance of the new iPhones. Many people who are keen to go for the cheaper iPhone 12 must be feeling happy.

However, if they are among those with high hopes of extra 5G usage, it won’t be the case.

What to expect from 12 Mini and 12 Pro Max

Now that the battery results on the first two iPhones are out in public, many people are curious about the remaining two.

The 12 Mini and 12 Pro Max will be available to pre-order from Nov. 6.

And when they do come out on Nov. 13, there will be several doubts over their battery performance.

Speaking of the Mini variant, then, of course, it may perform slightly less than its bigger siblings. But the premium model is highly expected to outshine all three by a large margin.

Still, it cannot be said right away that iPhone 12 Pro Max will be the greatest battery-friendly iPhone so far.
