Everyone is so excited to see the newest offering of Apple–the iPhone 5. And even before the unveiling of the said gadget, photos already leaked (no surprise there) on how it will look like and how a couple of the specs will be. It will have an all-new thinner enclosure, metal design, smaller dock connector, and other awesome exterior features. One thing has not changed though – its battery. The battery pack installed in iPhone 5 is said to be similar with iPhone 4/4S which could mean that the new iPhone may drain its battery life fast.
People complained that it cannot even last for one whole day without charging. This can pose quite a problem for Apple. They need to take into consideration that not everyone can have a rechargeable battery source or a plug whenever their iPhone battery is failing them already. With the rumors of LTE connectivity also spreading, the fast network connectivity will really need a stronger battery pack. This can be fixed though. Reports said that Apple tweaked dual-core system on a chip for the new iPhone and be efficient enough to run with 4G LTE.
Rumors have it that the iPhone 5 has 1440 mAh battery pack. This is slightly higher from the 1430 mAh of the iPhone 4S and the 1420 mAh of the iPhone 4. Of course this won’t be enough for the consumers. The new battery also has a slightly increased watts-per-hour measurement: 5.45 wHr from the 5.3 and 5.3 on the iPhone 4 and 4S, respectively. Another thing, the new iPhone will have a new voltage of 3.8, compared to the 3.7 on the iPhone 4 and 4S.
We just have to wait if the new advancements offered by Apple will cover or at least give a shade to the fact that its battery can easily be drained. The iPhone 5 will be released on September 5.
