Apple's announcement of the new iPhone on September 12 is just a few days away now. Excitement over Apple's new iPhone is at a fever pitch, and it's hard to wait that last few days to see what we are going to get from Apple. To tide you over, we wanted to show you what we got our hands on....the battery for the next iPhone! Take a look at the pictures below and keep on reading to see some of the key differences between the new iPhone battery, and the iPhone 4S battery.
Along with all of the other parts that we have already assembled, we have placed the iPhone 5's battery where we think it will fit. And guess what, it is a perfect fit yet again:
Here is the front of the iPhone 5 battery placed next to a battery that we removed from an iPhone 4S:
Last, but not least, we have the back of the iPhone 5 battery placed next to the iPhone 4S battery:
Key differences between the iPhone 5 and the iPhone 4S battery:
1. The iPhone 5's battery is slightly less than a half an inch taller than the iPhone 4S. The thickness appears to be identical. UPDATE - Although, the thickness appears to be the same, the iPhone 5 battery is ever so slightly thinner. With an eye test, the iPhone 5 battery is maybe 1-2mm thinner.
2. The iPhone 5 is 3.8V/5.45Whr while the iPhone 4S is 3.7V/5.3Whr.
3. The connector on the iPhone 5 is not only different, it is placed on the opposite side of the battery to accomodiate its new position within the iPhone.
4. UPDATE - The iPhone 5 battery weighs approximately .80oz. The iPhone 4S battery is approximately .96ozMake sure to follow us on Twitter and FaceBook for more updates on Apple products and Apple repair services. Also check out Apple news center feed on our home page.
