While rumors are still swirling about the next-generation iPhone 7, and now Chinese site Digi.tech.qq.com, has shared images of what is believed to be the battery that will be included in the device.
The images were initially shared by digi.tech.qq.com [translated], and surfaced by HDBlog.it. The new battery is a slight increase in watt-hours when compared to the iPhone 6s (6.61 watt-hours), but actually similar to what’s installed in the iPhone 6 (7.01 watt-hours). Voltage is not visible on the alleged iPhone 7 battery, so the exact charge capacity is not yet available, but should be similar to the iPhone 6 battery.
This would corroborate reports that Apple’s going even thinner for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, by ejecting the 3.5mm headphone jack, which effectively maximizes available space in the design. Going thinner, and going with a battery that’s more similar to the iPhone 6, though, might have some interesting results for the public.
There’s still several months before Apple unveils the iPhone 7, so some changes are probably still being made. What do you think if this is the battery Apple uses?
