If there is one criticism that many seem to have about the iPhone, it would be its battery life. It isn’t completely terrible, but compared to the competition, it still leaves a bit to be desired. However that is expected to change in 2018, or at least that’s what KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is claiming.

According to the renowned Apple analyst, he claims that Apple’s 2018 iPhones are expected to feature batteries that are bigger and improved compared to their predecessors. This is expected to be applied across all iPhones in 2018, which last we heard there could be three models similar to this year.

The report claims that Apple is expected to continue using the L-shaped battery design which is also used in the iPhone X, and that this is expected to allow for better battery life. However it seems that the increase in battery might not be as big as one might hope. According to Kuo, the 5.8-inch iPhone is expected to pack a battery between 2,900-3,000mAh, which is about 200mAh more than the iPhone X.

This is a pretty small difference, which presumably could be used to help make up for the presumably more powerful processor and other hardware features, and also for its display. In any case we suppose it might be too early to start thinking about the 2018 iPhones, but if you have yet to purchase 2017’s models, you could consider holding off until next year.
