Comparison Photos of iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 Batteries



iresq_iphone_5_battery_shell

While several photos of the next-generation iPhone battery have leaked in August, Apple products repair firm iResQ has now got one of the batteries and published new photos that show the battery in the device’s rear shell and next to the battery from iPhone 4S for comparison.

The iPhone 5 battery is at 3.8 volts, potentially utilizing new chemistry technology to increase capacity to 5.45Whr from the 3.7 volt/5.3Whr iPhone 4S battery. The comparison photo shows that the iPhone 5 battery is slightly taller than the battery in the iPhone 4S, and the thickness seems almost the same despite the fact the iPhone 5 is said to be at least 15 percent thinner than the iPhone 4S.

The photos also show that the connector on the next iPhone is different and it is located on the opposite side of its battery in order to accommodate its new position in the device.

A Closer Look at Apple's Next-Generation 'Unibody' iPhone Design



unibody_iphone_1

Industrial designer Don Lehman has analyzed the leaked photos of the rumored iPhone 5 unibody design that should make the device stronger, lighter, and thinner than previous models, using a high-quality, thin metal shell wherever possible on the back of the device.

With the iPhone needing to send and receive Wi-Fi, cellular, GPS, Bluetooth, and perhaps NFC signals, Lehman notes that Apple redesigned the antenna system in order to push the antennas to the top and bottom portions of the stainless steel band wrapping around the device and avoid the "Antennagate" controversy that first took place with the iPhone 4. Lehman notes that even the bosses where screws for other components will attach are machined out of the single rear shell piece, increasing strength while reducing thickness and weight.
