Apple iPhone 5s and 5c Have Bigger Batteries

Battery life is a troublesome affair, not just on iPhones but on all smartphones today (regardless of what fanboys will tell you). At the (literal) end of the day, most high-end smartphones need some juice.

But that may be a thing of the past, with the new, larger batteries inside the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, according to some FCC filings spotted by AnandTech. In these FCC documents, Apple reportedly notes that the batteries inside its new iPhones have increased in size, just as predicted after a recent teardown. According to the tech blog, “The iPhone 5S ends up getting an almost 10 percent increase in size versus the iPhone 5, the iPhone 5C goes up around 5 percent versus the iPhone 5.”

Of course, a 10 percent increase in battery size doesn’t mean another full day of battery life, and considering that the high-end 5s has an even faster processor, it might actually need the extra fat to stay on par with the previously advertised battery life (for iPhone 5). All in good time. Drop date: September 20.
