Specialists of Revoseek dismantled and evaluated the maintainability of the new smartphone iPhone XR on the day of the beginning of its international sales. Unlike the iPhone XS and XS Max , the iPhone XR has a regular rectangular battery.
Recall, in the older iPhone models are used L-shaped and dual batteries. The battery capacity is 11.16 W h. This is more than 10.13 W ? h in the iPhone XS and less than 12.08 W ? h in the iPhone XS Max. Despite this, the iPhone XR shows the longest battery life among Apple’s 2018 smartphones.
