iPhone 6 battery pack caught on camera

iPhone 6 battery pack caught on camera
One of the bigger concerns about the upcoming iPhone 6 has been with the potential battery life. It is essentially a done deal that the iPhone 6 will feature a 4.7-inch display which means more battery drain, because screen-on time is still the number one issue when it comes to battery life. Given how thin the iPhone 6 is expected to be, there was worry that the battery wouldn't be all that big.

A new leaked image is claiming to show the iPhone 6 battery, and it appears to be in line with previous rumors that mentioned the potential size of the iPhone 6 battery. The image shows a battery pack that is 1810mAh, which is on the lower end of the rumored size. For comparison, the iPhone 5s has a 1560mAh battery, and the Huawei Ascend P6 (4.7-inch display, 6.18mm thick) has a 2000mAh battery. Apple has always focused on keeping up the battery life for iOS, which is why multitasking was limited for so long, but even so, 1810mAh is a pretty small battery for a 4.7-inch smartphone. 

Apple tends to prioritize being able to use adjectives "thinner" and "lighter" with its products, but it also usually tries to not make big compromises. We can't say whether it is, but we'll certainly be keeping an eye on these battery rumors for the iPhone 6.

Good luck on that . I'm guessing another wall hugging commercial will be up and running after the iPhone 6 release .

I'm sure Samsung's ad agency can be more clever. In order to escape the tyranny of the recycling bins and airport bathrooms, the next commercial can show iPhone owners with giant battery phone cases and how heavy and bulky the iPhone becomes with one of these. Throw in a few people lugging around their power bricks like anchors. Or pulling little wagons with their giant power cubes on them. "Some companies think differently when it comes to mobility".

Basically another year, another 100 milliamp hours. That's how Apple rolls.

1810 mAH battery on iOS equals to 2500 mAH on Android. Apple knows how to get the maximum out of the battery. I'm not worried!

what you dont get and what apple does not get is your adding nfc and bigger screen more power draining things then they are used to, why do you think they pulled the 5.5 o[h6 they know not many will sell its a ipad air.

iPhone 5 has about 3% bigger battery than iPhone 4S, it's got twice as fast SoC, dramatically improved more power hungry display and LTE. Yet it lasts noticeably longer than the 4S. It will be very exciting to see what kind of battery life they could possibly make from this.

Apple always squeezes the utmost profit by providing less for more. 1800Mah, acquisitive.

Knowing that iOS is power hungry, that battery isnt enough.

The more they add features, the hungry it gets. Just like Android. Ram and Cpu hog.

Now Android OEMs will copy apple and start putting bigger battery on their phones just like they will copy large screen of iphone.

Are you serious? Android makers had upgraded batteries since 2009. Oh, I forgot your name is Trolloftheyear. More like TrolloftheCentury.

I don't hate Apple, but these articles are getting ridiculous. iPhone 6 home button leaks out! iPhone 6 volume button!! iPhone 6 screw!!! Glue that was used in the iPhone 6!!!! Show us something when it's a real, fully built, not a mockup, not a 3D printed dummy phone that's "supposedly" to be what the iPhone 6 looks like. Until then, zZZzZZZZzzzzz...

I have something substantial: an inside source revealed what iPhone6 smells like! Suprisingly, it has an apple scent, speciffically the McIntosh variety.

Everyone already knows iPhones smell like money and sex. And occasionally, like homeless people or long term tent campers.
