Apple iPhone 6 battery might have a higher capacity than originally thought
Here is some good news for those planning on picking up the 4.7 inch Apple iPhone 6. Sung Chang Xu, chief news analyst for ESM-China, revealed that the battery on the iPhone 6 might be a 2100mAh cell as opposed to the1810mAh juicer originally thought to be on board. The news analyst did confirm that there was an 1810mAh capacity cell used on the phone, but that was placed inside the device for testing.

Because Apple is said to have made the new iPhone thinner, the tech titan had problems finding a source for batteries that could power the smartphone, and still be thin enough to fit inside. The iPhone 6 is expected to be just 6mm thin. Putting that in perspective, the Apple iPhone 5s is 7.6mm thin.

Apple has always been able to optimize the battery used on the iPhone, so a direct comparison to Android and Windows Phone cells is not particularly telling. We should know the capacity of the iPhone 6's battery on September 9th. Apple has scheduled a special event for that day, during which it is expected to introduce the next iteration of its iconic smartphone.
