    We've already seen several alleged part leaks for the next-generation iPhone 7, and now Chinese site Digi.tech.qq.com [Google Translate] (via HDBlog.it) has shared images of what is believed to be the battery that will be included in the device.

    The battery lists a capacity of 7.04 watt-hours, slightly larger in capacity than the equivalent battery capacity listed for the iPhone 6s (6.61 watt-hours) and almost identical to the iPhone 6 (7.01 watt-hours). Voltage is not visible on the alleged iPhone 7 battery, so the exact charge capacity is not yet available, but should be similar to the iPhone 6 battery.

    Rumors suggest the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus will be thinner than existing iPhones, with Apple perhaps making room for the similarly-sized battery by eliminating the headphone jack and cutting down on the extra space around the Lightning port.

    While we still have several months to go before the iPhone 7 debuts, we've already heard a long list of rumors about the device and we've seen multiple part leaks. The iPhone 7 is said to include a faster A10 chip, a Smart Connector, up to 256GB storage space, stereo speakers, no headphone jack, a thinner design with no rear antenna bands, a faster LTE modem, and dual cameras in the iPhone 7 Plus model.

    Apple is so uncompromising with their obsession on thinness...

    We REALLY wouldn't mind if the device were as thick as the previous generation model, with a bigger battery inside.

    Can we PLEASE get Wireless and Fast Charging. At least Fast Charging. I'm using a Note 5 just to try it out and hate the operating system, but I love how fast it charges lol

    Its frustrating how it looks like Fast Charging isn't even on the rumor table according to this article

    People want larger batteries? Just lower the capacity and up it again next year. No one will notice.

    Samsung listens to its customers with the S7, and then Apple just ignores them and does the complete opposite. Are they serious?

    makes it thinner, remains selling bulky original cases to make the whole thing redundant. LogicNotFoundException

    Considering the power efficiency improvements in the new A10 chip, I think this battery increase will go a long way towards satisfying users. It's great that Apple could do this and make it thinner, though unfortunately at the loss of the headphone jack. However, this does make me think it seems less likely the iPhone 7 will have the same dual-camera system that is rumored for the Plus version. Personally I'd prefer the same thickness and dual-cameras. The headphone jack is trivial for me. As long as it comes with an adapter or some new BT Earpods then I'm good.

    Don't worry guys, they will come to the rescue with a battery case for the iPhone 7 with a thinner bulge ;)

    Its very frustrating. As a long time apple user, I'm giving the Note 5 a try and I'm not a fan of Android but man, the fast charging is awesome as well as Samsung Pay working everywhere. I really want Apple to include AT LEAST Fast Charging in the iPhone 7. I really expect fast charging, wireless charging, 32GB base storage just to remain competitive. Nevermind about a better screen and water resistance

    a slightly bigger battery and a less consuming SoC (likely) on the iPhone 7 ? That's interesting... Are we gaining endurance or an higher resolution display ?

    iPhone 7 will display 10-Bit colour like the iMac, an upgrade from the iPhone 6 8-Bit colour.

    this is what i expect the rumored smart connector on the back is to be used for. a battery case without lengthening the phone too much

    Those combined leaks convince me that:
    Buying iPhone 6s Plus is still a good choice.
    In addition:
    - Removing headphone jack is a no-no. And I don't want an adapter, thank you.
    - I hate a thin device. iPod touch 6th gen is thin enough, but the feeling when holding it at hand is often strange.
    - I want a larger battery.
    Non of those above could iPhone 7 deliver to me. 6s Plus at least is thick enough, and it has a headphone jack.

    Prepare to be disappointed. It will likely only come with a set of Lightning earbuds. Not a 3.5mm adapter, or BT EarPods.

    I would gladly lose the headphone jack for more battery capacity. And I wouldn't rule out two cameras for the 7, or some other improvements they need extra space for. I'm not thrilled about the 2nd speaker rumor, since I'd rather see the headphone jack stay instead, but it really all depends on how the internal arrangement lays out, and what they are offering in return.

    Well maybe a gain of .43 watts plus A10 might mean 1-2 more hours of battery life - will see

    Apple has a vision for what they want for iPhone in the future. By making the each generation product thinner they challenge their engineers. While, Samsung's Galaxy phones are kinda just a frankensteins monster. Doesn't really have future.

    Here is to hoping for a 16hr battery life, and I swear I won't ever complain as I would be sleeping for the next 8hrs.

    Same here- looking around I have 3.5 plug in my night clock, kitchen, car and the office and before anyone say switch to Bluetooth I don't think a thinner phone is a valid trade off.
