    1440mAh? Really Apple? Ugh...

    How the hell could the iPhone 5 last all day with a bigger screen to power PLUS the battery killing LTE in tow? :confused:

    Any ideas on how many hours it will last before it goes dead? I say 3 hours MAX using LTE for continuous web surfing, since the Droid Razr Maxx needs a massive 3300mAh battery to make it through a full day of LTE usage. The original Droid Razr owners with a puny 1780mAh battery had terrible battery life (hence the Razr Maxx coming out 3 months later).

    I shudder to think what a mere 1440mAh battery will handle with LTE and a bigger screen equipped :(

    Haven't you heard? there is no screen, the 'bigger screen' is really a solar panel and you use the device entirely through siri. This makes the phone comparable to a nuclear submarine where the battery lasts the entire life of the phone. Sadly the phone will not be available to dull cold countries.

    I think you're confused because you're trying to figure out how long the battery of a phone that doesn’t officially exist will last.

    You've got the wrong units there, you need to be talking minutes.

    Well possibly, and three times if you actually use it :D

    Touche ;)

    Still if it is true this is ****ing terrible news and penny pinching by Apple to skimp on the one area that needed a tune up from the 4S: Battery Life.

    I think we need to see the new iPhone hitting somewhere near the battery in the new Samsung Galaxy S3, even 2300mAh isn't long enough for some people but one edge that the Samsung has is just how fast and easy a battery swap can be done. Apple should look at this if it's only going to offer such a "small" battery in its next phone.

    And with the change over to the new sized connectors everyone is going to have to replace/buy and adaptor :(

    hopefully it comes with the new energy efficient display tech.. (IGZO)

    maybe they will even find their own marketing word for it.

    this. If everything they use is more efficient a slightly larger better could equal much better battery life, or at least the same. I highly doubt it will be a downgrade from the 4S

    What makes you think it will have the same battery size? Also the latest LTE chips are MUCH more energy efficient than the ones that came out last year.

    What if they forget to put a sleep/wake button on the next iPhone?! :p

    It's sort of silly to assume that Apple won't take in to consideration then efficiency of the battery during the design phase.

    I understand that people are excited and curious about the next iPhone. But, to start complaining about a device that doesn't even exist yet is just a waste of time.

    But, if it is absolutely necessary to panic about the battery life of an imaginary phone; I wonder how much juice the teleportation and laser beam features are going to suck out of the next iPhone?

    I heard the iPhone 7 will have no battery. You just need to feed it an apple (preferably Granny Smith) once a week.

    Can someone please confirm this ?

    You are jumping the gun OP. No one knows what battery will be included, not to mention what battery saving technology that is also included. Goodness, take a deep breath and just wait until September.

    Will everyone calm down? Sheesh. For all we know, the new iPhone could be more power efficient with new hardware and iOS 6. Wait until the thing is out, in your hands, and you've tried it for a week before passing "lol crap battery is crap" judgement.

    Apple has a rhyme and reason for their hardware so there must be a a reason they are using only a slightly higher capacity battery.

    What are the changes that this is the battery for the new iPhone 4S 8 GB model (possibly even with the new dock connector)??

    The A5X chip will help with battery life so I don't think it'll really suffer. Should be a lot better when you're not using LTE as well.

    LOL, If the phone has LTE.... I am not so sure anymore (assuming this is the battery for the next iPhone). Either way, I feel there is a possibility I may fall into the category of someone with an LTE phone that never uses it.
