One of the biggest issues with any of the iPhones that we’ve tested, is that it “just works,” until it doesn’t. Battery life is a big problem with iPhones, where we’ve seen Apple only grow the size of the battery a few mAh in its seven year existence. Samsung and other companies are even mocking iPhone customers for their need to be plugged to the wall, and it seems that Apple might want to do something about it.
New reports claim that Apple is planning to launch the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 with a 2,100 mAh battery. Previous rumors mentioned that the iPhone 6 was only getting an 1,810 mAh battery, which is just a minor upgrade compared to the existing 1,560 mAh battery on the iPhone 5s. The source claims that Apple was only testing this 1,810 mAh battery, but that the final product will see the substantial upgrade we saw earlier. Match that with the probable power efficiency that we might see on Apple’s A8 chip, and this could be code for an improved experience.
Apple’s 4.7-inch iPhone 6 is rumored to be ready for an announcement on September 9th. The company is never specific on battery specifications at events, but hopefully this will be a major issue it will address on a slide.
