The deluge of iPhone 7 parts leaks isn't letting up any time soon, with Asian tipsters today claiming they've laid their hands on the forthcoming smartphone’s battery.
The power unit is marked as having 7.04 watt–hours, making it larger than the iPhone 6s’s battery which offered 6.61 watt–hours. However, it puts it virtually on a par with 2013’s iPhone 6, which features a 7.01 watt–hour battery.
The exact charge capacity remains unclear. However, this leak does seem to suggest that Apple is not willing to compromise on its design in order to offer a larger battery.
Rumours have consistently suggested that Apple is, in fact, looking to slim down its next iPhone even further.
If this leak turns out to be true, it’s likely to leave many potential users disgruntled about the fact that Apple isn’t keen on offering battery life that lasts longer than 24 hours.
Apple’s Chief Design Officer, Jony Ive, has previously said that he was not willing to offer a larger battery and that the reason power ran down so quickly on iPhones was because they were so alluring to users.
Apple is set to reveal the iPhone 7 later this year. The iPhone SE model is due out this month.
