Leak suggests iPhone 7 might actually address the iPhone’s biggest problem

iPhone 7 Rumors: Battery Ceramics

The iPhone 7 is still about six months away from being released, but plenty of supposed details can be found online already. Design schematics as well as purported specs for the handset have already appeared in countless leaks, and a brand new report brings us more information suggesting that Apple’s new iPhone 7 might actually address the iPhone lineup’s biggest problem.

According to Chinese-language site, the iPhone 7 will have a slightly bigger battery than its predecessors. Specifically, the 4.7-inch will pack a 7.04 Whr battery that represents a 6.5% increase in capacity compared to the 6.61 Whr battery in the iPhone 6s. Images showing the supposed iPhone 7 battery are available below.

This could be a huge deal. Early reports said that Apple’s new iPhones will be even thinner than the current models and most people assumed that also meant they would include smaller batteries and potentially worse battery life. If Apple does manage to stuff a larger battery in there, it could mean that the iPhone 7 will outperform this year’s model where battery life is concerned, especially if Apple makes other optimizations as well.

The report says that the headphone jack is indeed gone from the iPhone 7 and that Apple might use ceramic for the new iPhone’s housing, which seems unlikely. The site states that the iPhone 7 Plus/Pro is expected to pack a dual camera while the 4.7-inch will feature a regular camera.

Also noted in the report is the claim that the iPad-like Smart Connector might not be present on the back of the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 – recent leaks suggested the iPhone 7 Plus/Pro will have the new connector on the back.

According to the unconfirmed report, Apple’s internal naming scheme for iPhone models will change starting with the iPhone 7. The device has three internal code names, D10, D11 and D12, for iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 7 Pro, respectively. All iPhone models to date had internal code names that began with the letter N followed by two numbers: for example, the iPhone 6s is codenamed N71.

Finally, the report suggests it’s not clear how the home button will operate, whether it’ll be a physical home button as seen on all iPhones to date, or whether it’ll reside under the display as suggested in a shady leak a few days ago.
