The iPhones released this year offer great features and good battery life, but consumers still wish for better battery life on the iPhones. I know I could use battery battery life on my iPhone X. Even though this year’s battery life was still could, the new batteries to be introduced in 2018 iPhones could be game changers with improvements.
A new report from well-respected industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo at KGI Securities says that the next version of iPhones coming in 2018 will all have larger L-shaped batteries inside, 9to5Mac reports. 9to5Mac also suggests that the batteries could be as high as 3,000 mAh.
With battery sizes that large, this would provide a significant boost to battery life for 2018 iPhones. Keep in mind that this year’s iPhone X already has a battery capacity of 2,716 mAh based on iFixit’s teardown, and the battery life isn’t significantly better than previous iPhones.
It’s also rumored that Apple may introduce two new iPhone X screen sizes: 6.1 and 6.5 inches. With Face ID also incorporated, having larger screens and Face ID would require bigger batteries to offer the same or better battery life than current iPhones. Apple is known to have very efficient processing power, but with introduction of more powerful processors, it would require more juice. That’s where bigger batteries would come in to compensate for a more power iPhone.
We’ll have to wait and find out next year.
