This seems like such a silly question but I couldn't find much information online. I'm curious if the same energy is used for XS Max 64, 256, and 512GB capacities. Or if the 64gb technically draws less power. Thoughts?

No. But the 64GB will be noticeably slower in terms of performance compared to the other two.

Can you provide a source to prove this? I've heard something about it but all it mentioned was writing speeds.. Other than that, I don't see why this would be. They all have the same A12 chip and internals.. Plus there is still plenty of space after just the iOS is installed, at least for a light user like myself.

I think it's just the nature of SSD's, unless apple has deployed a different kind of tech here. (Which I doubt.)


But again my question is understanding the impact on energy draw.
