Apple iPhone 5S to have a higher capacity battery than the current model

Apple iPhone 5S to have a higher capacity battery than the current model
With the introduction of the Apple iPhone 5S and Apple iPhone 5C less than a month away, it looks like we will make it to Apple's event without one single prototype found on the floor of a bar. Despite that, we have had plenty of leaks and speculation about the next iteration of Apple's smartphone and its low-cost variant.

The latest information about the the next full-priced iPhone, the Apple iPhone 5S, comes from an internal source who says that the new model will have the same aluminum construction and dimensions as the current Apple iPhone 5 (7.6mm x 123.8mm x 58.6mm) which means that the screen will probably remain at 4 inches on the new model. The new version of the phone is slightly heavier because of the higher capacity battery that is said to be powering the handset.

This source also indicates that the Apple iPhone 5S will be available in the U.S. late next month. Earlier Monday, we heard from another source that the next iPhone will feature an 8MP camera with an aperture of f/2.0 which should allow the phone to take good pictures under low-light conditions. The model will be powered by a faster A7 processor and be available in white, dark gray and champagne gold. And yes, the new Apple iPhone 5S is expected to have a fingerprint scanner embedded in its sapphire home button.

Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

No no i call this EVOLUTION or improvements over current iPhone i know this was a sarcastic comment, which i think is irrelevant in this case pa just post every new leaks or news about phones because that's their job.. Well what to expect? its a mobile tech site. i have seen these kind of funny/pitty/sarcastic comments on almost every iPhone leak which pa posted. C'MON guys take a break. I know apple's innovation rate is kinda low recently but still they provide pretty decent competitive product. Besides what else they can do with battery?????

A 2000 mAh battery would bring at least 15-17 hour battery life to an iPhone with moderate-heavy use. 2000 mAh seems unlikely, i'd go with 1500 mAh however.

It doesn't state 2000 Man, but I believe around 1800+. Great will be selling the iP5 and getting this, an updated CPU, GPU, camera and hopefully a 720P screen. 2Gb Ram.... Wait and see. ™

Innovative you say? How about you become more innovative and come up with some better insults that are actually entertaining. You dope.

Not trying to be one of those, "no one cares about this article" people, but this isn't exactly news. Every iPhone has had a higher battery capacity than the previous iteration. A monkey could have figured this out.

While I thumbed you up and agree with you, I don't think many people saw the Nexus 7-'13 with a smaller battery coming (albeit a very small shrink) Who knows what kind of explanations any company can come up with justifying battery size?

15. g2a5b0e unregistered

I hear ya, but the even though the new Nexus 7 has a smaller battery, it actually gets better battery life because it uses a more frugal processor. Also, that really has nothing to do with what I said about how every iPhone has been given an increase in battery size.

No, the Nexus 7 gets awful battery life compared to it's predecessor. Roughly 3 hours less battery life in real-world testing. Check every tech site that has reviewed it, and you will see roughly 6 hours in rundown tests.

Eh. Whatever. Don't care. Off topic anyway.

I wouldn't exactly call a larger battery innovative, unless it's insanely large like the MAXX series, which I doubt considering it only went up by 8 mAh from the 4S to the 5. I doubt it will go above 1,600 mAh, but I would like to be proved wrong.

don't you guys have an iphone already? it's similar, almost indistinguishable. it's like dating an identical twin sisters, except the twins are fun in so many other ways.

Lol they sure are, but I'll be selling my ip5 on Craigslist like always. Put the difference with it, and get the new one.

That 50 mAh difference will keep the iPhone relevant.

Laggy phones like my s4 help keep the iphone relevant too.

iOS7 will likely require more battery power, makes perfect sense. And if that is indeed the case, sucks for the older iPhones that are still in use.

Blah, blah… it will have a bigger battery, it will be a lighter and thinner, it will be 2x faster… as with every iteration of the iphone. They could as well recycle the press releases from last year! ;-) This year we've seen a lot of innovation.. to name a few things: 5" full hd displays, dual stereo speakers, cameras with optical stabilizers and xenon flash, cameras up to 20mp, phones with hardware to process always-on voice commands, hdr microphones, eight core processors, waterproof phones... and the iphone will be lighter, thinner and with a bigger battery… oh yeah, and a f/2 lens… wow!

We are so spoiled this week with new news on the new iP5S. I am almost overwhelmed with all the innovation going on!
