Back in December, Apple users had a bit of fun taking jabs at the manufacturer over its newly-released Smart Battery Case. The case was designed to extend an iPhone's battery life to 25 hours. But iPhone users weren't all that impressed. Instead, many of them called "foul."
For many, this new case served as proof that Apple was aware of what many say is the iPhone's largest flaw - short battery life. Twitter exploded with comments like, "Why don't they just include a better battery in the iPhone in the first place?" And soon, the Smart Battery Case began to look like nothing more than a marketing gimmick. Especially, since the price was $99.
However, the latest iPhone 7 rumors make it seem that Apple is finally taking the battery life issue seriously. A recent report from Chinese-based blog MyDrivers states that the iPhone 7 may include a 3100 mAh battery, rather than the 1715 mAh or 2750 mAh batteries included in previous models.
Although this news is exciting, improved battery life isn't something that anyone should count on just yet. The stronger battery could be necessary for new parts that require more battery power to begin with. Plus, the battery life of your personal phone depends on a wide range of factors, including what types of apps you run most. And it could also be that the stronger battery will only be included in the iPhone 7 Plus.
We'll just have to wait and see what the final specifications look like when the iPhone 7 is released. For now, here are some more rumors that are going around:
- Apple could bring back smaller phone models
- The next iPhone could be missing something it's had since the beginning
- The new iPhone is secretly kind of waterproof
- New pics show what the next iPhone could look like
- The next iPhone might be missing a headphone jack
