Battery For iPhone 5 Has Only Slightly Higher Capacity


9to5Mac posted photos of the new battery for the next iPhone showing only a slight increase in capacity from 1430mAh/3.7V/5.3Whr in the iPhone 4S to 1440mAh/3.8V/5.45Whr in the iPhone 5. No dimensions are given to compare the size of the new battery with the current iPhone battery.

The upcoming iPhone is expected to be taller and thinner than the current iPhone. However, the increased height of the next iPhone is more than offset by the decrease in thickness which results in a reduced internal volume as compared to the iPhone 4S. If this leak is to be believed, battery capacity on the next iPhone will not significantly increase.

The new iPhone is said to include support for LTE networks for the first time. LTE requires more power than the 3G networks that are currently supported by the iPhone. Apple’s CEO Tim Cook has said that Apple hadn’t used LTE in their smartphones due to the “design compromises”, which are required to create such a device. It has been widely believed that Tim Cook has referred to the increased power consumption of LTE chips. Qualcomm is expected to release a new LTE chip with the reduced power requirements.
