Rumor: iPhone 5 Battery Bumped up 10 mAh

What other tweaks does Apple have in store for the iPhone 5's battery life?


An alleged new battery shot has leaked out for the iPhone 5 and, if true, potential purchasers are going to get a bit of a battery bump in the to-be-announced smartphone.

But we use the word "bit" in the smallest possible sense of the word, for the alleged iPhone 5 battery is only going to run at a capacity of 1440 mAh – up a whopping 10 mAh from the battery found in Apple's iPhone 4S .


What does that mean? A slightly higher capacity, but one that'll be offset by the battery-draining 4G LTE capabilities rumored to be making their first Apple appearance in the iPhone 5. Additionally, the allegedly larger 4-inch screen rumored to be making its way to the iPhone 5 isn't going to do much to help battery life, either.

However, before you run for the technological hills, there's no indication of just what tweaks Apple might be working into the iPhone 5 or iOS 6 to help stretch battery life as long as possible, given these new features. Depending on how Apple's tweaked its rumored dual-core SoC design for the iPhone 5 – or integrated other, less battery-draining components like Qualcomm's Gobi chipset (for extreme, worldwide compatibility with a number of network operators) – the issue of battery capacity plus LTE and a larger screen size might not be that big of a deal.

What we do know – again, if the leaked photos of the iPhone 5's battery are legitimate – is that Apple has upped the voltage of the battery from 3.7V to 3.8V. The battery's also rated at a higher watts-per-hour measurement (5.45) than that of the iPhone 4S or the iPhone 4 (5.25 wHr).

Of course, that assumes that this battery is going in the iPhone 5 to begin with. As 9to5Mac's Mark Gurman notes, this might just be an upgraded battery for another iPhone or a scrapped battery entirely.

Additional rumors hitting the airwaves as of late include Apple's (likely) switch to a smaller dock connector for the iPhone 5 instead of the device's traditional 30-pin connector, but speculation runs rampant as to how many pins the new connector might feature: 19? 8? 9?
