Latest Apple iPhone 7 leak reveals larger capacity battery and ceramic body

Latest Apple iPhone 7 leak reveals larger capacity battery and ceramic body
Do you believe that where there is smoke there is fire? Last month, a render of the Apple iPhone 7included a ceramic back. Today, the use of ceramic showed up again with another leak that calls for a ceramic body to be used on the next iteration of the handset. The HTC One S employed ceramic on the phone, and that lead to too much chipping of the device. Perhaps the technology has improved greatly since the 2012 release of the HTC model.

Additionally, a photograph of what is purportedly the battery that will power the iPhone 7, reveals that the cell has a capacity of 7.04 Whr. That is a 6.5% increase in capacity over the 6.61 Whr that the iPhone 6s battery contains. Without knowing the voltage, it would be impossible to get a capacity size for the cell in milliampere-hours (mAh). Comparing two batteries, the one with the larger Whr number will most likely offer longer battery life.

One reason why Apple has allegedly removed the 3.5mm earphone jack from the iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus was to allow a larger sized battery to fit inside the device. If this image is legit, it would appear that the iPhone 7 will come with a slightly improved battery life. It might not be enough to make the power users happy, but any increase in iPhone battery life will be well received.
