Give me a break!! Seriously? It's not like the Pro Max screen is 10X bigger. Man people here purposely make a mountain out of a molehill simply because it's Apple. SMHThe bigger screen on the Pro Max version likely will have a big difference. I feel like this was not the year to go thinner at the expense of battery capacity. 5G is a monster.
My iPhone X is at 88% capacity and I'm on the fence about updgrading. Is it that significant of an improvement features wise? Would I be able to stretch it for another year with my phone at 88%? Overall my X works solid still.
You say most people won’t care. It’s exactly this mentality that Apple doesn’t innovate anymore or really step up their game. They know they will sell because the sheeple will flock to buy them. All they do is give tiny little spec upgrades that is really meaningless.
Absolutely agreed, if anything this was the year to either keep the same battery capacity as 11 series or give the phones slightly larger capacity. The fact that they chose to chase thinness while also chase 5G is beyond mind boggling, people would have understood that 5G needs more power and so would have understood the thicker/bigger phones. The 12 Pro Max should have had a 4200mah battery at least, but I’ll wait to see it’s battery test results, however the 12 Pro results are already showing that the 12 Pro Max will probably be a step backwards from 11 Pro Max, such a shame.The bigger screen on the Pro Max version likely will have a big difference.

Youre kidding me right?
Thanks to coconutBattery I have some battery history. It goes roughly like this:My iPhone X is at 88% capacity and I'm on the fence about updgrading.

“To preserve battery life when using 5G, a Smart Data Mode reverts to an LTE connection when 5G speeds aren't necessary.”Does anyone know if any sort of software optimizations will improve battery drain while using 5G on the 12? Whether it be from Apple or the carrier. (Excluding UWB) Since 5G speeds aren’t always better at this point, one can infer that there will be optimizations on the carrier side to make things faster.
A 10 or 20% difference in battery life doesn't really change anything. Depending on my usage I charge my iPhone 11 Pro once or twice per day (well, I plug it in every time it is charge level is below 50% and I am near a charger). Now how is a 10% increase in battery life really changing that? By slightly reducing the number of days I do charge it twice per day. But I'm not counting them so it highly unlikely that I even would notice a difference.Absolutely correct. The 11Pro / 11Pro Max is likely superior along at least one dimension - battery life. To some of us, this is one of the most important features of a phone. The 12 Pro Max isn't available yet and the 11 Pro Max is completely unavailable from Apple.
