The latest reports claim that Apple will release 2 fresh iPhones — one with a 4.7-inch display, the other with a 5.5-inch screen. The 4.7-inch version will reportedly see a 15 % jump in battery performance over that of the iPhone 5S, as per AppleInsider, citing a report from Chinese tech site IT168. If accurate, that would be a good and welcome enhance over the 8 % boost from the iPhone 5 to the 5S.
Battery performance is among the top issues of smartphone customers. Battery technology has enhanced over the years. Finding a method to enhance battery performance while keeping phones relatively slim and trim is the ultimate challenge. Assuming the report from IT168 is even correct, the 4.7-inch iPhone would use an 1,800 mAh battery, which would still keep the phone thin. The latest speculations claim that iPhone 6 will be leaner than earlier designs. The larger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 would go even more by packing a 2,500 mAh battery, representing a 60 % jump in battery performance from the iPhone 5S, AppleInsider noted.
The new iPhone batteries would still leave Apple behind a few of its Android opponents in capacity.
