Korean news firm The Elec reports that the successor of the iPhone XR will have a slightly larger battery than the current iPhone XR. Although this may still make the iPhone XR the longest-lasting iPhone in terms of battery life, we have to see what this change has to do with the battery’s longevity.
The Elec’s report has evidence about the iPhone battery suppliers. The report said that,
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.
This implies that the new iPhone XIR will get a mere amount of battery life added to the current iPhone XR’s battery, resulting in 3110 mAh from the 5% difference between the current iPhone XR’s 2942 mAh battery. But with the biggest iPhone XS Max, the iPhone XR’s rumored battery capacity has a greater difference between these iPhones. It still has a small difference between them but iPhone XS Max consumes more battery power than the iPhone XR.
Overall, the news firm The Elec isn’t primarily an accurate Apple-focused news and rumors site, with the claim that Samsung is working together with Apple regarding about OLED display suppliers in the next 16-inch MacBook Pro and iPad Pro. Just stress about these rumors with skepticism, because they won’t be really sure if it’s going to happen.
