    Anyone see any news about "next gen batteries" that Apple may be working on or looking into?

    The biggest feature for iPhone 6 is exactly that. Much more battery life.

    Where do we stand, will there be any improvement?

    Battery life improves with every new iPhone.

    I would love to see an iPhone with "all day" battery life.

    I'm impressed with what they've been able to do with the MacBook Air. If they could bring that over to the iPhone, I'd be happy.

    No, no it doesn't. Not even close. Example 4 -----> 4S.

    For whatever bizarre reason (I'm certainly not an electrical engineer) battery improvements haven't been made in a while, it's more how you can get the rest of the components+software to work together to utilize less energy for the workload.

    Not in actual usage it wasn't. Battery issues on the 4S was a widespread problem.

    People complain of battery issues with every iPhone. :rolleyes:

    According to Apple's numbers, the 4S had better battery life.

    Exactly.

    When it comes to battery tech, is not Apple, ask Tesla.

    Apple hopefully will keep improving processors efficiency.


    Last night I watched David Pogue's "Smaller" on PBS [gasp], they are talking about semiconductors made of 1-atom thick graphene, with generates NO HEAT, that means perfectly efficient electronics!
