With things having settled down for a while after Apple's event last month, looks like the rumor mill is finally ready to pick up pace once again. When it comes to the Cupertino tech giant, Apple's been seeing some troubled times recently with the company's investors reacting negatively to falling iPhone sales. This has made the upcoming iPhone launch in September even more important, and right on cue we're starting to see sources speak up about Apple's 2016 flagship smartphone upgrade once again.
Apple To Increase Battery Capacity On The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus
The iPhone 7 has been a consistent part of the rumor mill over the course of this year, with several bits of information about the device having surfaced so far. News so far suggests that Apple will not only be upgrading the design on the device so far, but we should also expect an all new camera sensor for the larger, 5.5 inch iPhone 7. In addition to this, not only has the Apple A10 entered trial production run, but we're also expecting this year's iPhones to be completely waterproof and come with some long awaited display upgrades.
Today, some more information has surfaced about the battery capacities for the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus, adding more to what we already know. Previously, we've heard that the device will be coming with Quick Charge on board and a 7.04Whr battery, marking a small upgrade over its predecessor. Now, we're seeings some alleged battery capacities surface for the device, with the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus rumored to come with batteries of capacities 1735 and 2810mAh respectively.
As you can see in the image above, this marks an incremental increase over the battery packs found inside the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus. Looks like Apple's choosing to play its strengths of hardware and software integration this time around and depending as little as possible on physical battery capacity. The current iPhones offer sufficient battery lives for most users out there, though with their successors we're expecting battery life to increase nonetheless.
With nearly four months left until Apple finally does upgrade the iPhone lineup, we're still expecting more information to surface related to this year's launches. While hardware specifications are well and good when gauging anticipated device performance, the iPhone's main selling point has been design for quite a while, and until visual details for the device leak, there's nothing that can be said with certainty. We'll be on the lookout as more surfaces. Till then, stay tuned and let us know what you think in the comments section below.
