Apparently, that stumbling block has been overcome. Apple has partnered with Taiwanese supplier Simplo, who provided a battery that met Apple’s requirements. The battery is reported to be quite thin – Apple wanted to find a battery that was just 2mm thick – has a sufficient lifespan to keep the larger iPhone powered for a respectable amount of time, and is flexible too.
It was previously rumoured that the iPhone 6 would possess a 2,500mAh battery, a step up from that found in the iPhone 5s. This increase is needed of course due to the iPhone 6’s larger screen size.
That’s one issue solved, though Apple is reportedly encountering production delays and we may not see the larger iPhone 6 until next year. The smaller 4.7-inch model is still expected this year, according to industry analysts.
