Apple boasts the iPhone XR has the longest battery life of any iPhone ever, and the company is apparently looking to further increase the life with the next-generation model expected to arrive later this year.
According to reports from Korean website The Elec, Apple will use a 3,110 mAh battery in the 2019 iPhone XR, around a 5.7 percent increase compared to the 2,942 mAh battery that ships with the current model.
Despite the increase, the battery capacity of the next-generation will likely still be lower than the 3,174 mAh battery in the current iPhone XS Max.
China’s ATL (Ameperx Technology Limited) has kicked off mass production of batteries for the successor to Apple’s iPhone XR forecast to be unveiled later this year, according to those close to the matter on June 9. Battery packaging will be done by another Chinese firm, Huapu Technology. – The new batteries will have a capacity of 3110mAh, which is more than a 5% improvement from the 2942mAh of the iPhone XR.
The Elec has an unproven track record. The site previously claimed Samsung Display was in discussions with Apple about supplying OLED panels for the rumored 2019 all-new 16-inch MacBook Pro.
