    Okay I know it's too soon and this may seem crazy but I don't really want to upgrade to the iPhone 5S from my 5 only because I don't see the need in it because my 5 is running iOS 7 very smooth, so I was wondering that if I could maybe fit the bigger 1570mah battery in the 5 when you can eventually find one online?

    At the very least, you'd have to redesign the logic board in order to make room for a larger battery.

    You won't really notice a difference. Not worth it.

    Have you seen the inside of an iPhone 5? Not exactly any room to spare. They must've redesigned much of the components and arrangement. So no.

    Only a 9.02% increase so definitely not worth it.
