  • Supposed Next-Gen iPhone Battery Image Leaked, 3.8V, 1440 mAh

    With fall quickly approaching, the launch of the next-generation iPhone is around the corner and there has been lots of “leaked” information. Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen quite a bit of images leaked, with the most notable ones being the back plates of the new iPhone. These parts helped reveal an all-new thinner enclosure, metal design, smaller dock connector, relocation of the front-facing camera, amongst other various attributes.

    According to 9to5Mac source, Sonny Dickson, images of the new iPhone battery packs have been revealed. These battery packs sport a higher capacity than packs in previous generations of Apple’s iPhone. This new battery features a capacity of 1440 mAh. That is up from the capacity of 1430 mAh on the iPhone 4S and up from 1420 mAh on the iPhone 4 based on iFixYouri who examined the battery photos.

    Along with the increase in battery capacity, the new battery also features a new voltage of 3.8. This is up slightly from 3.7 on both the iPhone 4S and the iPhone 4. The new battery also has an increased watts-per-hour measurement (wHr), 5.45 wHr, which is an increase from 5.3 and 5.25 on the iPhone 4S and iPhone 4, respectively. This is another battery variable that points to an increase in power available to the new iPhone. The battery’s label appears to say that it was produced in June, 2012 which seems to coincide with the next-generation iPhone component manufacturing.

    While Apple has increased or tweaked the iPhone battery every year, this new battery seems to be significant due to the rumors of LTE network connectivity. LTE, infamously, requires bigger batteries due to the power that the faster network takes. It seems like the jump in battery capacity from the previous iPhones to this new iPhone is not all that big with this fact taken into consideration.

    We’ll find out sooner rather than later though when more concrete information is revealed.

      It's a rumor not a fact.

Some of these "upgrades" are things that could have been in the previous model, cause they are not revolutionary at all. I hope this "new iPhone" really is more than the parts that MMi has been showcasing. Hope Apple is not resting on their laurels and will come through with a great quality phone. Siri should be awesome and do way more, Camera should be awesome and be at least 10-12MP, front facing camera 8MP, screen size (im fine with the 3.5) 4" to compete with Android, battery life substantially longer by now(its been years since the 1st iPhone)and they last the same amount of time on a single charge, Colors would be nice(thanks for the white iPhone)red, blue, green..whatever you like MAKE IT haha! Host of other standard things IMHO..we shall see.
      Very well said!! Unfortunately, the competition continues to update their hardware frequently so Apple must refresh products every year. But each year increment really lacks a noteworthy upgrade. Siri is not a good enough reason to buy a 4S if you already have a 4.

      directly comparing the mAh between the batteries in phones is a stupid way to determine the battery life of a device... There are a hundred variables that go into how the energy is used. That is the important thing. So what if the device has less overall battery area, if it uses that power efficiently through efficient manufacturing processes, intelligent smart coding, device consolidation, etc.. it really doesn't matter what the total amount of energy in the battery is, it is how long it will last within the platform. I have had some android phones that don't even last a days use, despite have a much larger battery capacity than other more efficient android phones, and iphones which can last much longer despite having smaller batteries. Any speculation or saying that this battery "Sucks" is stupid until we have real world data on how long the phone can function w/ normal use.
