There was a story last week that mentioned the possibility that the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro lineup will feature lower capacity batteries than the iPhone 11 lineup. now, an iPhone battery matching one of those capacities has appeared online and in pictures.

The full rundown of expected iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro battery capacities is:
- Apple iPhone 12 (5.4-inch) – A2471 – 2227mAh

Apple is expected to announce all four new iPhones in September or October, depending on how badly the production and design stages of development were impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. We'd expect to see more and more leaks like this as time rolls along, too.
