At this point there’s a general consensus regarding many features we expect to see with the iPhone 7, but one thing that many people have been wondering about is the battery size. A sketchy report out of China earlier this year claimed the battery would “slightly” larger, but now we have new information that suggests a bigger increase.
Twitter leakster OnLeaks today claims that the iPhone 7 will feature a 1960mAh battery, which is a slight upgrade from the 1715mAh battery found in the iPhone 6s. This is notable seeing that the iPhone 6 actually featured a larger 1810mAh battery than the iPhone 6s does, so at least we’re not seeing another downgrade this time around.
It’s hard to tell how notable of a change this will be in terms of battery life, seeing that there will be a change in components, which could be more power-hungry. If you look at the 1877mAh capacity of the Apple Smart Battery case, and the 8 hour increase of usage Apple claims that provides, that would put it at essentially one hour of usage at 235mAh of battery.
So, with the iPhone 7 now said to feature a 1960mAh battery, we could be looking at an additional 1 hour’ish of battery life.
