iPhone 7 Rumored To Pack A Bigger Battery Than Its Predecessor – Apple Finally Doing The Right Thing


Turns out the Apple isn’t going to be making its upcoming iPhone 7 the lackluster smartphone we all thought it was going to be, although some critics are still not expecting the device to deliver. The latest rumor suggests that the upcoming smartphone has been rumored to pack a larger battery capacity than an iPhone 6s, but by how much?

iPhone 7 Has A Battery Capacity That Will Exceed iPhone 6s’ By 14 Percent – Not A Whole Lot But It’s Still Something

According to one of the most revered leaksters on Twitter, OnLeaks has stated that the battery capacity of iPhone 7 is going to exceed the iPhone 6s’ by 14 percent, which brings us to a grand total of 1,960mAh. Disappointingly, it still has not crossed the 2,000mAh mark, but given the fact that iPhone 7 is expected to be thinner than its predecessor, it’s still a commendable achievement. The battery capacity comparisons of iPhone 7, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6 have been listed below:

  • iPhone 7: 1,960mAh
  • iPhone 6s: 1,715mAh
  • iPhone 6: 1,810mAh


iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus could also feature LTE modems from two different companies, and we believe that the phablet sized brother is going to feature a 3,100mAh battery, which is huge even by Apple standards, along with on-board storage increased to 256GB. We expect that 256GB will be nice little upgrade for those who have capped their 128GB internal memory (for a premium price obviously).

At this point, we’re not too sure if the upcoming smartphone is going to feature a 3.5mm headphone jack or not, but rumors circulating suggest that the packaging of the handset will include an adapter to attach your expensive 3.5mm headphones or earphones, along with support for wirelessly charging the smartphone.

Apple is also said to adopt a new chip developing technology called FoWLP, which stands for fan-out wafer level packaging platform. With this technology, smartphone OEMs can greatly reduce the thickness of their mobile devices since FoWLP does not require a PCB. Additionally, it is able to increase the efficiency of chips by 30 percent and reduce the thickness of smartphones by at least 0.3mm. We bet Apple’s ears must be ringing when they were pitched that smartphone thickness could be using by employing this technology in mobile devices.

If all of these rumors are true, then an iPhone 7 is truly going to be thinner than an iPhone 6s while packing a larger battery. Do you feel that Apple should have fitted a larger battery according to the times we live in, or would it be adequate given the company’s timely software optimizations?
