After launching a new device, a few different things tend to happen. First, we get to see images of the launch circulate over the ‘net, and then the inexorable drop tests always surface. The teardown is part of the equation as well.
According to iFixit, the site predominantly known for the teardown treatment of many devices, the iPhone 6 Plus shares quite the striking resemblance to the iPhone 5s. The layout is similar, yes, but the size is obviously much bigger. More to the point, the battery is indeed quite a bit bigger than the previous generation. In fact, twice as big.
iFixit also notes that there are no “booby traps” once the front panel of the device is removed from the rest of the handset, a gentle nod towards the cable that ran from the Lightning port to the Touch ID sensor in the iPhone 5s. The battery in the iPhone 6 Plus is indeed bigger than the iPhone 5s (not that that should have been a shock at all to anyone), measuring in at 2915mAh at 3.82 volts and 11.1 Wh of energy. (As a reference point, the iPhone 6 battery is measured in at 1810mAh.)
And finally, iFixit has indeed confirmed that the iPhone 6 Plus has 1GB of RAM, finally to putting to rest those debates and rumors.
