The specifications for Apple’s new iPhones were unveiled today. Thanks to a message from the Chinese Ministry of Industry, Information and Technology, we know exactly what’s behind the screen of the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR.

Usually, these details are not released by Apple. The company is notoriously secretive about the battery life of its devices, the amount of working memory and other details. However, MacRumors found the data on the site of the Chinese ministry. Based on that, we now know exactly what’s in the devices.

Batteries and working memory

The iPhone XS has a 2,658 mAh battery and four gigabytes of working memory. That’s 2.2 percent smaller than the iPhone X battery, which has a capacity of 2,716 mAh. At the same time it is 1 gigabyte more working memory than the iPhone X had at its disposal. Even though the phone has a smaller battery, Apple says it can last up to 30 minutes longer than the X. This is due to improvements in the software and the more economical processor.

It will come as no surprise that the large iPhone XS Max has a battery with a capacity of 3,174 mAh at its disposal. That’s by far the biggest battery ever in an iPhone. In addition, the phone has a working memory of four gigabytes. That XS Max has a battery that lasts up to one and a half hours longer than the iPhone X.

Finally, there is the iPhone XR, which has a battery of 2,942 mAh. According to Apple, this phone would last the longest on a fully charged battery. The processor also has three gigabytes of working memory.

Where the iPhone XS and XS Max are already available, the XR will be available from 19 October.
