Apple iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro were officially released on October 14. Although the retail version of the phone cannot be activated before 8:01 on August 23, teardown is not impossible. At present, the teardown by AIO Technology shows that Apple iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro use the same model and capacity of 2815mah battery.

‌IPhone 12‌ and iPhone 12 Pro have the same L-shaped logic board inside, and ‌iPhone 12 Pro‌ is equipped with a LiDAR connector for the LiDAR scanner. IPhone 12‌’s logic board does not have a soldered LiDAR connector. Except that, two logic boards are exactly the same.

Beside, the iPhone 12 uses plastic blocks to fill the original LiDAR and telephoto camera positions on the Pro version.

The video author believes that Apple can actually increase the battery capacity of the iPhone 12 with a special-shaped battery, but it is a pity that Apple has not done so.

After comparative analysis, iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro's front camera, linear motor, speaker, bottom board, battery, etc. are exactly the same. In theory, they are completely interchangeable components.

In addition, ‌iPhone 12‌ and ‌iPhone 12 Pro‌ use the same 2815mAh battery inside, which also explains why the two models have the same battery life.
