It seems like there is no end to iPhone 6 related rumors and we can very well expect this stream to go on until Apple makes an official announcement. Whenever that happens we’ll certainly be ready for it. The latest rumor claims to bring us the iPhone 6 battery capacity. With its Android rivals already pushing beyond the 3,000mAh battery threshold most users are curious to see how big of a battery the larger iPhones bring this time around. If this rumor is correct then it may just be a nominal increase.
The rumor suggests that Apple’s 4.7-inch iPhone 6 will have a battery that ranges between 1,800 and 1,900mAh. 5.5-inch iPhone 6 is believed to have a 2,500mAh battery. As compared to the iPhone 5s which has a 1,570mAh battery the latter is a significant upgrade, but will it be good enough to appease users?
Capacity alone won’t dictate the battery’s performance. Apple can make several display, hardware and even software optimizations to ensure that the battery performs at the optimal level. So battery life on the new iPhones won’t be dismal but it may not be as much as what’s being offered by its Android rivals.
It goes without saying that this rumor should be taken with a grain of salt. It comes from an unofficial source and far all we know these figures might be nowhere near the truth. That’s the downside to rumors.
