When Apple unveiled the new iPhones last week, battery life of the devices were mentioned in days and hours, but specific battery sizes were a mystery. Well the good news for those who are wondering what the battery sizes are, you might be interested to learn that thanks to a teardown by the folks at iFixit and Macotakara, the battery sizes of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have been revealed.
According to Macotakara who did the teardown for the iPhone 6, they found that the 4.7-inch iPhone has a 1,810mAh battery which corroborates an earlier rumor. This isn’t a huge leap over the iPhone 5s’ battery which is at 1,560mAh, but we guess it’s still a welcome upgrade nonetheless. They also found that the battery is fastened to the chassis via adhesive tabs, versus previous iPhones where the batteries were glued in.
Moving on to the iPhone 6 Plus, iFixit found that under the hood, the 5.5-inch model came with a sizable battery of 2,915mAh. This seems to be in line with earlier rumor that suggested a 2,915mAh battery. Given the iPhone 5s’ battery size, this is almost double the amount. Then again the iPhone 6 Plus has a larger display and a higher resolution to deal with, so we guess a larger battery is needed.
Both iPhones have been released and should be making their way into the hands on customers who have pre-ordered the device or who are planning on lining up to get their hands on it. So, which model do you plan on getting your hands on?
