Whether we like to acknowledge it or not, our phones have become integral parts of our lives. From keeping in touch on a regular basis with family and friends, to tracking steps, creating photo albums, FaceTiming into meetings, and more, we need our smartphones for loads of different things. This type of usage calls for longer and longer battery lives. Surely there have been instances where your phone has died at a very inopportune moment. This is something that Apple placed emphasis on when designing the new iPhone 11 family of devices. The iPhone 11 Pro lasts up to 4 more hours than the iPhone XS and the 11 Pro Max lasts up to 5 more hours than the XS Max. How was Apple able to achieve such an extended battery life? That’s where the A13 Bionic chip comes into play.
As the successor to Apple’s A12 Bionic chip, the A13 was designed for power efficiency. It features a 6-core-GPU: two high-performance cores running at 2.66 GHz called Lightning and four efficiency cores called Thunder. Not only is the A13 more powerful than the A12, but it’s able to delegate power in the phone to the areas that need it most. The chip works with Apple’s iOS 13 operating system to make the most out of the phone’s battery life, giving you those extra 4 or 5 hours to get more done during the day or night. Overall, the iPhone 11 Pro Max can last up to 12 hours on a charge! With fast-charging capability and can charge up to 50% in just thirty minutes (when using a 18W adapter)! Charging back up to a full 100% will seem like no time at all. From the moment you take the phone off the charger and get into your day, the iPhone 11 Pro Max is working nonstop to ensure power is used as carefully as possible. This is the smartphone for you if battery life is at the top of your needs list.
