Like always, Apple did not mention anything about the battery capacity of the new iPhones when it unveiled them yesterday at its ‘Hey Siri’ event. However, the company gave everyone a quick glimpse at the battery capacity of the iPhone 6s while showing off the new 3D Touch feature through a video.
The video confirms that the iPhone 6s comes with a 1715mAh battery, which is what reports and rumors had previously indicated. This is nearly a 100mAh decrease in capacity when compared to the 1810mAh battery found inside the iPhone 6.
Reports have also indicated that the battery capacity of the iPhone 6s will be reduced to 2750mAh, from the 2910mAh battery found inside the iPhone 6 Plus currently. While not confirmed, it is likely that reports are going to be spot on here as well.
There can be multiple reasons why the new iPhones ship with a smaller battery than their predecessor, including the presence of the Taptic Engine and the 3D Touch chip taking up significant part of the motherboard inside them. Whatever the case may be, one can only hope that the reduced battery capacity does not make a difference in the battery life of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.
