As Apple remains silent on the battery size on the new Apple iPhone 7 and the Apple iPhone 7 Plus, a number of tech enthusiasts have been able to strip down actual versions of the phone and learn the specifications.
The battery size on the smaller iPhone 7 was unveiled a few days ago and it features a slightly larger battery than the one found on the iPhone 6S. The iPhone 6S has a 1715 mAh battery while the new iPhone 7 has been able to bring the capacity to 1960 mAh. A 15% increase in the battery capacity is unlikely to translate into a 15% increase in battery life, but it will still be better than the predecessor.
The battery size on the iPhone 7 Plus was also expected to feature a similar increase and a teardown has now revealed the actual capacity. Compared with the iPhone 6S Plus which has a 2750 mAh battery, the latest model has a 2900 mAh battery. Apple has been able to bring about an increase in terms of the size largely because of the space vacated by the 3.5 mm headphone socket. Apart from being able to pack in a larger battery, Apple has also been able to include much stronger adhesives to the device. It seems to be behind the water resistant capabilities of the phone.
Even though the world is still loathing at the fact that Apple has decided to do away with the headphone socket, there seems to have been numerous benefits obtained by doing so. For those who still want to connect the old headphones with the iPhone 7, they will have to rely on the lightning adapter provided in the package. This small adapter serves to connect the lightning port with the headphones having the traditional 3.5 mm socket. The headphones provided in the box, though, are able to connect with the device using the lightning port.
One of the best directions on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus has to be the camera, which is especially better on the iPhone 7 Plus due to the dual setup. Some pictures from the camera have already promised the world to expect DSLR-like qualityin a highly ergonomic package. Preorders of the iPhone 7 Plus have been sufficient to seal the first batch of devices. Those who have had formed a huge queue outside the Apple stores will have to be satisfied with the standard iPhone 7.
