The latest release reportedly shows what’s believed to be a 7.04 watt-hour battery that will be installed in the upcoming iPhone 7. 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).
While voltage isn’t listed on the battery itself in the images, it would stand to reason that the iPhone 7 battery, if this is indeed the one that Apple plans on using in the upcoming flagship, will have the same, or similar, charge capacity of the iPhone 6.
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?
