While the iPhone XR already has the longest battery life of any iPhone ever, a new supplier-focused report from Korean website The Elec claims that the 2019 version of the device will feature an even larger battery capacity.

The report claims the next iPhone XR will have a 3,110 mAh battery, around 5.7 percent larger than the 2,942 mAh battery in the current model:
China's ATL (Ameperx Technology Limited) has kicked off mass production of batteries for the successor to Apple's iPhone XR forecast to be unveiled later this year, according to those close to the matter on June 9. Battery packaging will be done by another Chinese firm, Huapu Technology.

The new batteries will have a capacity of 3110mAh, which is more than a 5% improvement from the 2942mAh of the iPhone XR.
That means the next iPhone XR's battery would still have slightly less capacity than the 3,174 mAh battery in the current iPhone XS Max, but the latter device consumes more power overall. Moreover, the next-generation iPhone XS Max is expected to gain a larger battery too.

Back in April, reputable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that battery capacities for the next iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR could increase by 20 to 25 percent, 10 to 15 percent, and up to five percent respectively to accomodate the rumored two-way wireless charging feature on all three devices.

Apple is widely expected to unveil its trio of 2019 iPhones in September as usual. The next iPhone XR is expected to be upgraded to a dual-lens rear camera system and is rumored to be available in new green and lavender colors.

Of note, The Elec is not a site with an established track record in relation to Apple rumors. Last month, the website claimed that Samsung is in talks with Apple about supplying OLED displays for a 16-inch MacBook Pro and future iPad Pro models. For now, treat these rumors with at least some skepticism.

So ugly! Square camera bump out for just two lenses. Seriously.

The square bump is awful and not necessary.

Today’s iPhone XR is a really decent device, but it’s too heavy.
Doesn’t take away from how good the phone is. I don’t get how so many people are up in arms over the square camera enclosure. It least it’s symmetrical/neat. There’s plenty of other beauty in the phone’s design.

If we could gain any efficiency from iOS 13, ( there are lots of changes under the hood ), SwiftUI ( Although I doubt Apps will adopt it this quick ) new SoC with 7nm+, along with other tweaks to bring 10% energy efficiency, we could see a total of ~17% improvement.

That is on top of the current XR which already has a pretty good battery life.

They need to beef up the battery in the next XS. That phone battery has been awful. Seriously makes me consider getting an XR for the battery alone.
Hopefully they improve the OLED, current it is eating up quite a bit of battery.

People complaining about the weight of the XR: It's literally .7 oz heavier than the iPhone X. It's not that heavy. it has a bigger battery and the longest battery life of any iPhone ever released, getting 3 hours more internet use and wireless video playback than the X. Heck the iPhone 8+ is 7.12 oz and its screen is .6" smaller than the XR (albeit a higher dpi display).

Seems Apple can't win. Smaller battery, lighter phone = "battery life sucks!" Bigger battery, better battery life = "OMG I can barely lift it!"

I’ve had the best battery life thus far with the XS personally over any other iPhone. Also, your comment is a bit broad stroked, battery longevity really depends on the [usage and settings], which make a significant impact on the battery life throughout the day.

You must be using it wrong.My XS battery is pretty good.Mostly get a full day.
Lol "Using it wrong" No it is an undersized battery and OLED screen draining the battery. That, along with the garbage intel modem make me can't wait to get rid of the XS.

Thank you, I had no idea usage and settings will lead to battery drain /s. The X for me was much better in terms of battery. The XS has been a mess since launch.
