The iPhone 6’s battery may be much better than you were expecting

Published Aug 6th, 2014 11:15AM EDT

One of the many unknown iPhone 6 details is battery size, with a new reports suggesting that Apple’s 4.7-inch handset might ship with a battery that’s even bigger than initially anticipated. G for Games cites Sung Chang Xu, news chief analyst at ESM-China, who said on Weibo that the phone may have a 2,100mAh battery, which is significantly larger than the previously rumored 1,810mAh battery for this particular iPhone 6 version.

FROM EARLIER: More sources confirm the iPhone 6 will be revealed on September 9th

The analyst apparently said that the 1,810mAh battery is real, but was only used for testing purposes. Naturally, these battery rumors can’t be confirmed at this time, as Apple never shares anything with the public when it comes to unreleased products.

Various reports detailed Apple’s struggle with battery dimensions. The company’s suppliers reportedly had issues creating even thinner batteries for the handset – the iPhone 6 will supposedly be just 6mm thin – although such issues were overcome, other reports said.

Apple is confirmed to unveil the iPhone 6 on September 9, at a special media event during which it’ll likely reveal more details about the phone’s battery. After all, battery life will be an extremely important feature for the iPhone 6, which will not only be thinner than predecessors, but also pack a bigger display with a higher resolution.
