iPhone 11 Pro Models Have Up to 25% Larger Batteries and 4GB of RAM Per Reliable TENAA Filings

Likely-accurate battery and RAM specifications for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max have surfaced in filings submitted to Chinese regulatory agency TENAA and uncovered by MacRumors.

Apple has filed many products with TENAA over the years, as legally required, and the listings have proven reliable on multiple occasions. Last year, for example, accurate battery capacities and RAM in the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR appeared in the database prior to those devices launching.

TENAA lists the battery capacities and RAM in the iPhone 11 lineup as follows:

Note that Apple filed the Chinese models of each iPhone with TENAA, but as in previous years, the battery capacities and RAM specifications should be consistent with the models sold in the United States and other countries.

Here's how that stacks up with last year's iPhones:

  • iPhone XR: 2,942 mAh battery and 3GB of RAM

  • iPhone XS: 2,658 mAh battery and 4GB of RAM

  • iPhone XS Max: 3,174 mAh battery and 4GB of RAM

Based on these figures, the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max have 5.7 percent, 14.5 percent, and 25 percent larger battery capacities than the iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max, respectively.

TENAA filing for iPhone 11 Pro Max

Apple says that the iPhone 11 lasts up to one hour longer than the iPhone XR, while the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max last up to four and five hours longer than the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, respectively. Many reviews found the devices to have excellent battery life that does last hours longer.

Two of the battery capacities were previously rumored. In June, Korean website The Elec claimed the successor to the iPhone XR would have a 3,110 mAh battery. And a month later, an alleged Foxconn employee claimed the successor to the iPhone XS Max would sport a 3,969 mAh battery.

4GB of RAM across the entire iPhone 11 lineup is also consistent with benchmark results that have surfaced in reviews of the devices. There has been some discussion that at least some iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max configurations have 6GB of RAM, but the TENAA filings do not reflect this.

Apple never discloses battery capacities or RAM in iPhones, but teardowns of the new devices should confirm these details in the coming days.

Appears to be a case of some people feeling specs on paper are more important than actual usability. I don’t care how much RAM it has, as long as it runs fast and buttery smooth and accomplishes all I need and want the phone to do. If it runs that way whether or not it has 4 or 6 gigs of RAM, does it matter?

Massive batteries and plenty of RAM. No reason to add more to iOS and negatively impact battery life.

Great news.

Same processor, same RAM. Seemingly less and less "pro"

4GB is enough! Apple certainly knows how to create a smooth experience.

Big fat batteries, on some nice new phones!

Let’s roll with it, and just enjoy them on Friday!

This tired argument? Apple supports old devices for 5 years back right now, period.

Do you see anyone complaining iOS13 is a laggy mess on older much lower RAM devices? The 5 years OS updates will far outlast the average upgrade cycle of the user (if just under 3 years is a true number).
It's not a tired argument. The iPhone 6 was the first iPhone to receive fewer yers of support than its predecessor and it was directly related to Apple skimping on ram that year and using 1GB for the 3rd year straight.

The more ram in a device, the better that device will run down the track.

Not saying that 4GB is not enough ram, but ram is important for longevity both in terms of length of support and how well said device runs on future iOS versions.
