Apple, one of the dominant tech giants, described that there wasn’t any difference between the iPhone 12 mini and the iPhone 12, excluding their price and size.
The statement is not technically correct because the iPhone 12 Mini is significantly much smaller, especially when examining its tinier battery. The company claimed that the iPhone 12 Mini acquires 2 hours less battery life than its larger variant, which means fifteen hours of video playback on the iPhone 12 Mini and seventeen hours on the iPhone 12.
Because the iPhone 12 Mini is so much smaller than the iPhone 12, it has a tinier battery.
Apple says the iPhone 12 Mini gets two hours less battery life than its larger sibling — 15 hours of video playback on the iPhone 12 Mini compared with 17 hours. https://t.co/peMuoYzVNe

Apple’s battery life is never beatable
The battery life is still very impressive, particularly considering some of the biggest rivals of the iPhone have substantially bigger batteries but didn’t acquire much efficiency of their batteries. The company has always played a magic trick to its battery life by developing its chips work and software seamlessly together.
However, the tinier battery life in the iPhone 12 Mini remains a tradeoff. There is no problem that you are getting the same camera, software, chip, same screen, and several other specifications for a hundred dollars less, with 5.4 inches screen size. You would definitely rethink your choice when your friend with the bigger cell phone is at 20 percent, and you are at 5 percent. Maybe your selection of the iPhone 12 Mini would force you to rethink whether the smaller device was a perfect choice.

The firm’s blog 9to5Mac says that the iPhone 12 Mini battery capacity is twenty-one percent lesser than the iPhone 12. Moreover, the iPhone 12 is lighter and thinner than the previous year’s phone and even holds a 9.5 percent smaller battery than the iPhone 11.
Although, the leading tech giant, Apple, is claiming the same battery life on the iPhone 12 Pro, the iPhone 12, as in the previous year’s phone. Furthermore, the iPhone’s 12 Pro Max obtained a massive twenty hours of battery life.
The current year’s 5G-enabled iPhones include an upgraded display, a more rigid glass, enhanced cameras, and new colors, while comparing to the last year’s iPhone 11.
Apple is even serving its cheapest phone in the lineup, which is the iPhone 12 Mini, with a price of 699 dollars. But on the top of the lineup, iPhone 12 Pro Max starts at 1,099 dollars, and it is also considered as the biggest mobile by Apple with 6.7 inches of display.
