Apple is known to not detail the specifications of its devices, and things are no different with the Cupertino company’s latest products, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. However, thanks to their respective certification on TENAA, we now know the exact battery capacities of these smartphones.
As the smaller device of the two, the iPhone 7 naturally has a smaller battery. Packed with a 1,960mAh battery, it is a slight improvement over the iPhone 6s’ 1,715mAh cell. The iPhone 7 Plus, on the other hand, is equipped with a 2,900mAh battery; the iPhone 6s Plus has a 2,750mAh battery instead.
Now, the battery capacities of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are not exactly groundbreaking in any way. Despite this, Apple mentioned that these two smartphones will have better battery life than their predecessors; the iPhone 7 is said to last up to two hours more than the iPhone 6s as well, which is quite a claim to make.
Even though the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus’ battery capacities pale in comparison to those found in Android smartphones, it’s worth noting that Apple’s brand new A10 Fusion chip is said to be more power-efficient over the previous generation A9 chipset. Of course, whether or not this will result in better battery life still remains to be seen.
