iPhone 7 Has a 1,960mAh Battery, Says Chinese Regulator

By Gary Cutlack on at

A Chinese regulatory site appears to have told the world precisely what sort of battery capacity Apple has gone for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The results might shock you or make you shrug with indifference.

According to the TENAA listing there has indeed been a capacity increase across the range, with the iPhone 7 featuring a 1,960 mAh battery, and the iPhone 7 Plus containing a 2,900 mAh unit. Those figures are higher than the respective 1,715 mAh and 2,750 mAh batteries that were inside last year's models, so there's a good reason to blow £600 on the new one this month.

Which means Apple's claim of longer battery life comes not from having got better at making processors, it's simply because of a bigger battery in the things. [BGR via Techradar]
