How long does the new iPhone 12 battery compared previous Apple models - Last Friday, October 23, Apple put on sale its new iPhones. On this occasion, to break the tradition, he did not show 3 versions, but raised the ante and presented the iPhone 12, the iPhone 12 Pro, the iPhone 12 Pro Max and the interesting and more economical iPhone 12 mini.
If you still do not have it in your hands or you are undecided because you are not quite clear whether to bet on this new model or one of a previous range, one of the keys to take the leap is to check how long the battery of the new iPhone 12 lasts compared to previous models.
As usual, many comparisons of this type have already begun to come out, but one of the most important YouTubers in the sector, mrwhosetheboss has already put them to the test in a video that shows face to face the battery consumption of all the iPhones that Apple has on sale.
The most interesting thing is that it is not only left to check which iPhone has a longer battery life, but it subjects them to tougher tests such as videos, maximum lighting, play time and much more.
What is striking is that the new iPhone 12 feature the A14 Bionic processor, the latest Apple chip that in addition to much more power also promises more efficiency and a display of 6,1 inches, that is, a device slightly larger than the iPhone 11 that had a display of 5,9.

As for the battery capacity, the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro are left with a battery of 2, 815 mAh, against that of 3, 046 mAh. The numbers speak for themselves: is the efficiency of the new processor enough to give the new model more battery time?
Sadly, after a test of 6 hours and 34 minutes of screen on, the iPhone 12 Pro says goodbye to its battery and after 6 hours and 41 minutes the same happens to the iPhone 12. As for the autonomy of the previous model, the iPhone 11 Pro drops to 7 hours 36 minutes and the Pro Max to 8 hours 29 minutes.
We must also be clear that the tests have been without SIM card, so surely when you have the 5G activated, the iPhone 12 will lose in this comparison. These are the numbers of the test:
- iPhone 11 Pro Max: 8 hours and 29 minutes
- iPhone 11 Pro: 7 hours and 36 minutes
- iPhone 12: 6 hours and 41 minutes
- iPhone 12 Pro: 6 hours and 34 minutes
- iPhone 11: 5 hours and 8 minutes
- iPhone XR: 4 hours and 31 minutes
- iPhone SE (2020): 3 hours and 59 minutes
Anyway, the expert is clear that the autonomy more than meets what it promises despite the fact that the iPhone 12 is below the previous generation at the battery level, although it is true that it has a larger screen and a smaller battery.

Flywire, the unicorn of Spanish origin that triumphs in the US managing payments from universities and hospitals: "we have to simplify the world of payments, users have a terrible experience"
Solving a very specific problem, such as facilitating international payments to pay for university tuition, a complex process and with many costs in banking commissions, made the company of Valencian Origin PeerTransfer become an indispensable service for international students of many American universities. Years later and converted into Flywire, it has become a global payment service for educational and health institutions, which is also one of the few unicorns of Spanish origin, after Goldman Sachs injected 120 million dollars (101.4 million euros) and raised its valuation above 1,000 million dollars.
"We started with a focus on education and very focused on international payments, but we have been realizing that where we shine is integrating complex or old systems, such as those that have both universities and hospitals", explains in an interview with Business Insider Spain its vice president of engineering, Felipe Talavera.
If in its initial proposal, led by the enterprising valencian Iker Marcaide —that the problem was found when doing a master's degree at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2008— the key aspect was its management of foreign exchange for international payments —reduced the cost to the student making massive purchases of foreign exchange which got lowest prices on the currency exchange—, Flywire has evolved into a service that is integrated into the systems of payments to your client by facilitating the entire process.
"Now, our system is able to transact all university payments, not only international ones, but also the university store, POS, supplies, salaries... We integrate with all systems. We have a very recognized brand in the industry," adds Talavera.
After focusing for years on the higher education sector, not only in the US, also in European and Asian universities, they discovered that their value was not in the transfers themselves, but in the payment infrastructure they had developed.
"When we evaluated what else we could do, we realized that what we offered was a banking network, an infrastructure, and thinking about how to continue growing we saw that we could take advantage of it in other sectors. We looked for payments with high tickets (transactions) and the hospital issue was quite evident," recalls the Flywire executive.
The bet-reinforced by the purchase of the hospital payments company Simplee last February, with which they hope to reach 10,000 million dollars annually in healthcare transactions-has not gone wrong: 4 of the 10 largest hospital groups in the United States use their platform, which have evolved to facilitate fractional payments, a fundamental aspect in private healthcare for the amount of medical treatments, as well as the user experience, another indispensable element in which the sector has to evolve, according to Talavera.
"The vision we have is to simplify the world of payments. We believe that there is a lot of complexity inherent in the system and that users have a terrible user experience; they have to know too much, there are too many avenues and things going on that are not intuitive to the user," says Flywire's vice president of Engineering.
Paying for college tuition or medical treatment can be "the most critical payments a person makes in their life, "so their goal is for their users to"not have a bad day for it."
Flywire is currently a company with 2,000 customers, which has processed more than dólares 16 billion in payments and is capable of brokering transactions in 150 currencies. Their intention is to continue adding new verticals beyond education and health, for what they had already set in the tourism sector, one of the most affected by the pandemic. They already have some clients in the industry, such as travel agencies specializing in luxury destinations, Alpine, and some international hotel chains, which have a problem similar to that solved by universities, when it comes to receiving payments in different currencies.
Dedicated to tour operators in the top segment, consider that your recovery will be faster after the impact of the pandemic coronavirus: "We are quite optimistic, we are in contact with them and, as they are a type of trip quite particular, luxury, or exotic, we believe that rise relatively soon."
It is not the only sector in which they are considering entering. Although he does not mention which ones, the Flywire executive points out the keys they are looking for in the sectors in which they are considering starting business. "We are looking for high tickets, with a lot of global dispersion, services between companies that then offer us to their customers and that require a very good customer service, which is what we focus on," he explains.
In the technology area, Talavera works on the infrastructure that allows adding those verticals and improving customer service. Flywire has worked in the cloud since its inception, for which it has relied on the Amazon Web Services service from the beginning. "We have always relied heavily on them to give more value to the customer," he adds.
From that technical point of view, they look with great interest at the evolution of technologies such as blockchain, in which they have done "some testing", but admit that the sectors in which they work are "highly regulated", so it is difficult to apply it. "We believe it is a technology that solves a key problem, which is peer coordination," he admits.
Flywire is one of the few unicorns with Spanish origin, a very small club of which eDreams, Cabify, Letgo, Glovo are part and to which Idealista has recently joined. From his point of view, one of the keys to getting an emerging company to reach valuations above 1,000 million is to have an international orientation from the beginning.
"What we did differently is that we were clear that we had a global market, that our horizon was the world. That way of thinking is what has led us to grow fast. It is something that is beginning to change, but I continue to see many startups that continue to wait to scale in Spain," considers Felipe Talavera, who admits that in his case, being focused on American universities, they began to sell quickly in other continents such as Asia, since many Asian students finish their training in the United States.
Flywire currently has more than 500 employees and, since its inception, has stood out for focusing the technological part in Valencia, where they have a hundred workers, while the executive and commercial areas are in Boston (United States). At present, they already have 12 offices spread across the United States, Europe and several Asian countries.
