    Just curious about everyone's opinions since this could be a great seller in the cell phone market.

    Can't you just edit the title? I've done it before...

    And if you were going with the next iPhone having a bigger battery, possibly.
    OS X 10.9 has more battery saving functionality as a whole (or so I've read) so I suspect Apple is really making a push for battery life optimizations.
    I'm thinking they'll update their processors using one of those newfangled processes (22nm? I'm not too keen on this) to increase overall battery life, but the design of the 5S probably won't change from the 5 so there won't be anymore room for a bigger battery.
    It seems iOS 7 will have more battery intensive tasks (those "live" wallpapers for one), so they'll have to do something about increasing battery performance, but I doubt they'll physically change the battery.

    Negative.

    The new Air has he same battery as the old Air. The improvement is due to the new Intel chipset.

    So, the question remains unanswered.

    Yeah I kinda meant "improved battery life" but put "bigger battery," oopsie. But I was saying the iPhone would likely get processor improvements as the Air did.

    For some people that battery life doesn't matter as they're always around a place where you can charge it. Like me lol

    Unlikely, such huge improvement.

    The Arm processors are mobile designed from the gecko. The current Intel I5/7 came from old x86 architecture.
