    guys

    i don't get it - does anybody know the technology behind apple able to increase battery life, even with the 4G radio? Does anybody know the mah of the battery?

    Thx

    until someone actually gets to benchmark the new iPhone, I would take Apple's numbers with a grain of salt.

    4G has actually been out for a while. Apple is just using subsequent versions of 4G chipsets. Having said that, it will be interesting to see battery life for those people on the fringe of a 4G area. In my home on the border of a 3G area, leaving 3G on kills my battery in no time.

    apple usually only give simple stripped down benchmarks which is why their battery time is always stated bigger than what is really expected. Since they haven't specified the battery life whilst actually using LTE then I would not expect it to be a pretty result...

    One of the "leaked" photo threads around here actually showed a somewhat bigger battery for the iPhone 5. Not sure if that rumor proved out in what was released. Guess we'll have to wait for the first tear down report on launch day.

    And lower power Ram, but we won't know until ifixit teardns

    ----------

    yeah but it's thinner and it was basically the same capacity i think about 10 more mah. i think iphone 4S was 1440 and iphone 5 is 1450 mah. All based on those rumor sites so could be completely wrong. Also battery chemistry maybe could help but those are all very small improvements as it is still Li ion and only so much you can do

    The battery is 15% larger and the A6 is optimised to consume less energy.
