After all, new functions and features also present new challenges for the device. So it’s no wonder that iPhone’s battery capacity continues to increase over time. If you’re wondering how much power your iPhone’s battery has, here are the battery capacities of all iPhone models expressed in milliampere-hours (mA h).

Knowing the battery power is helpful if you want to know how often you can charge your iPhone with a power bank, for example. To help you know how much power your iPhone has, the table below shows the capacities for all major iPhone models.

By the way, a large battery does not automatically indicate a longer runtime. Large iPhones such as the iPhone 8 Plus or the iPhone X have a correspondingly larger battery than the iPhone 6s or the iPhone 7. So the larger the iPhone, the more powerful the battery that powers the hardware components.

Check iPhone battery health

If you want to know more about the wear and tear of your battery, you can check the battery cycles of your iPhone using iBackupBot, which not only determines the current capacity of the iPhone’s battery, but also the charging cycles. Alternatively you can use the free app Battery Life, which informs you about the current battery status.
