Last month, photos of an iPhone battery were leaked. But since this one was smaller, we thought it would correspond to the 4-inch iPhone 6c. But no, it was actually from the iPhone 6s, and Apple has almost inadvertently confirmed this in one of the scenes in their videos where they show the operation of 3D Touch. The detail to which many pay attention is sometimes sickening, but thanks to them today we know that the 1715 mAh battery was real .
Of the iPhone 6s Plus we have no details, but if everything follows the same path, it should also be slightly smaller. This reduction in size comes from the Taptic Engine that mounts the iPhone 6s , which allows it to offer a very precise haptic response to 3D Touch commands.
Let’s remember that the iPhone 6 had a 1810 mAh battery, which means a reduction of 95 mAh of capacity , which is said to be soon. Rumor has it that the iPhone 6s Plus could reduce its capacity from 2910 mAh to 2750 mAh, but this has yet to be confirmed. And until iFixit gets its hands on it and shows us what it’s all about, there’s nothing we can do but wait.
Despite this slightly smaller battery, Apple has managed to nail down the hours of battery life from the two previous models , so we assume that the Apple A9 does its job extraordinarily well, and improves the overall energy efficiency of the device. It remains to be seen whether those numbers Apple promises are really true, although they don’t usually cheat on battery life.
We’ll probably have to wait for the iPhone 7 next year to see a smaller Taptic Engine and 3D Touch , which will make more use of the interior space and thus have a more generous battery. But if Apple continues to pursue ever-slimmer designs and doesn’t decide to stop on this path, we’ll never get phones that get more than a day’s worth of battery life.
