Further details about the iPhone 6’s battery leaked today, helping us put more meat on the bones of Apple’s plans for its next-generation smartphone.
This morning, French site Nowhereelse.fr leaked photos of what could be the iPhone 6’s battery, revealing that the handset is likely to be powered by a 1850mAh cell this year.
That’s a welcome upgrade from the 1500mAh battery that features in the iPhone 5S and, all being well, should equate to extra longevity.
But this afternoon there was better news. According to DigiTimes, the iPhone 6's battery will also be less bulky, coming in 2mm thick. Or a millimetre thinner than the iPhone 5S.
It might not sound like much of a reduction. But it could actually represent something of a coup for Apple.
Not least because it should also mean that the iPhone 6 is in turn thinner than its predecessor, apparently corroborating chatter that this year’s model will be sold as the ‘slimmest smartphone ever’.
Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 6 in 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch variants in September, amid all the fuss and fervour that have come to characterise the arrival of new iDevices.
The handsets are set to feature better cameras, a more curved design with relocated buttons and an improved, more robust version of the Touch ID biometric security scanner.
