IMG_1114Interestingly enough during Apple’s unveiling of the iPhone 5s, Apple didn’t exactly boast about the phone’s battery life which they normally do during iPhone presentations, leaving many to wonder if the phone would use the same battery as the iPhone 5 which would be a bit of a bummer. However thanks to FCC filings, it has been found that the battery on the iPhone 5s is 10% larger than the iPhone 5 and comes with a 1,570mAh battery over the iPhone 5’s 1,440mAh. However if you’re still a little skeptical, the first iPhone 5s teardown as indeed confirmed that the battery of the iPhone 5s is 1,570mAh (oddly enough the label reads 1,560mAh). Granted we already knew this but seeing it in the flesh always helps.


The folks at iExpert who conducted the teardown also noted that apart from the change in battery and the addition of the fingerprint sensor for the iPhone 5s, “it doesn’t seem that Apple have drastically changed the internal layout.” Why mess with a good thing, right? They have also noted that Apple has finally address the switch failure on the power switches found on older iPhone models by adding an extra coating which should help hold them together to prevent failures like they did in older models.
