This morning Apple announced the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. While the Cupertino company might have extolled the virtues of many of the iPhone’s new features and whatnot, they did fail to mention certain aspects, such as the phone’s battery size. We would have assumed it would be the same as before, but a new video seems to suggest otherwise.
The video itself was created by Apple and basically talks about 3D touch. However one part of the video shows the phone’s innards and according to the rendering in the video, it shows the battery of the iPhone 6s to be 1,715mAh (at around the 2:50 mark). This makes it 95mAh smaller than its predecessor, and it also seems to be in line with an earlier rumor that suggested a smaller 1,715mAh battery.
Unfortunately we’re not sure if this applies to the iPhone 6s Plus. That being said, the battery time listed on Apple’s website seems to be identical to the iPhone 6. This can either mean that the rendering was created simply for the purpose of showing off the phone’s innards, or the A9 and the combination of iOS 9’s power efficiency allowed it to offset the 95mAh difference.
Either way we will need to wait for a teardown of the phone to get a better idea, so check back with us in the coming weeks for the details.
