iPhone 11 set to pack bigger battery
Apple coming soon iPhone 11 The lineup will pack a much larger battery than the current iPhone lineup, allowing it to charge other devices without losing too much power itself.
Analyst Ming Chi Kuo, known for forecasting Apple’s next moves, estimates that the iPhone 11, an update to the iPhone XS, will have a battery that is 20-25% larger than its predecessor.
Meanwhile, the iPhone 11 Max will cram into a battery that is between 10% and 15% bigger, with the next-gen iPhone XR’s battery being 5% bigger.
Apple’s iPhones have never been known to offer good battery life, but Kuo believes the California-based company is making the move in an effort to offer two-way charging.
Already rumored from supply chain sources, this technology would allow new iPhones to wirelessly charge other iPhones, Apple Watch, and new AirPods housed in their dedicated wireless charging case.
Apple is catching up with Samsung, with its Galaxy s10 and Galaxy S10 + already offering the possibility of charging other products via its Wireless PowerShare function.
It is likely that Apple will play this feature as a result of its decision to cancel its AirPower wireless charging mat. Originally revealed in September 2017, the Qi-compatible mat was finally scrapped last week after apparent overheating issues.
In a separate report, it was revealed that Apple’s 2020 iPhone lineup will all feature brighter OLED displays. At the moment, the iPhone XR comes with a cheaper LCD screen.
Report citing sources close to Apple’s supply chain partners says Apple will also change screen sizes next year, offering 5.42in, 6.06in and 6.67in handsets .
Current iPhones are available in 5.8, 6.1, and 6.5 inches.
