New iPhone to have rubbish battery?

2 September 2015

iphone-battery The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus is, according to rumours, going to have a battery that has a reduced capacity compared to the current iPhones on the market.

These mutterings are coming from China, where cnBeta say that the iPhone 6s will feature a 1715 mAh battery and the 6s Plus a 2750 mAh battery. In plain speaking, that means a drop of 5.3% and 5.5% respectively for each phone.

However, Apple have previously said that the new iOS 9 will be more energy efficient, and it'll have a Low Power mode, which means it shouldn't need to use as much battery. However, if people feel like their phones are dying more frequently than before, there's going to be a lot of whining online. This is a bold move from Apple.

There's other good looking stuff on the new iPhones. Both are going to be getting a new 12MP camera, which is capable of shooting 4K video, and more.

They'll also have Force Touch technology, which lets you do different actions depending on how hard you press your screen. Very fancy.

Apple has been sending out press invites for an event on Wednesday September 9th, so we'll no doubt hear more about these phones then, as well as news on an updated Apple TV. Lunatics, start queueing up at your local Apple shop now.

    Why queue when you can usually have your iPhone posted to you the day it comes out ?

    So instead of being able to offer increased 'on' time, they've decided to increase profits by reducing battery size, somehow turning it into a feature! The fanboys will lap it up.

    @ Marvin You mean the fanboys will fap it up.

    Apple: "We've made this worse and more expensive, so form an orderly queue to buy it over there, dickheads"
