So one of the major flaws with the Apple iPhones has been the fact that the battery is not only difficult to replace but it also holds a weak charge comparatively speaking. I find myself charging my iPhone for most of the day which means if I was a more mobile personality I would probably keep 3-4 back up chargers or external battery power sources.
So the question on everybody’s mind is what has Apple done to correct this problem with the iPhone 6? The answer? Absolutely nothing.
Chinese media sources claim the 4.7-inch version of the iPhone 6 will ship with a battery between 1,800 and 1,900 mAh, while the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 will include a 2,500 mAh battery. Though larger than the 1,560 mAh battery in the iPhone 5s, these modest capacity increases place Apple behind competitors with similar sized handsets, and leave some wondering if Apple is keeping the battery too small in order to design an ultra-slim device. The larger screens on the iPhone 6 will naturally create more volume for larger batteries while maintaining a slim profile, but the displays themselves are likely to require increased battery to support the higher resolutions.
Of course, these rumored battery capacities for the iPhone provide only part of the equation, with Apple’s tight software-hardware integration also contributing to overall battery life. It is also possible that real-world battery life may be better than these speculated hardware specs imply due to underlying performance improvements added to iOS 8.
