iphone 6 battery

Some new photos popped up online this evening, showing what are said to be components for the 5.5-inch version of the iPhone 6. The claim is significant, as unlike the 4.7-inch model, we’ve seen just a handful of parts belonging to the larger handset.

Among the parts are a display panel, logic board, and perhaps more interesting, a battery. The battery runs at 4.35 volts, and has a capacity of 2,915 mAH. If legit, this would put the 5.5-inch iPhone ahead of the Samsung Galaxy S5 in terms of battery size…

The photos were posted by Chinese site Apple Daily, who claims they came from a reliable source. It’s obviously impossible to confirm the legitimacy of the parts, but the battery does feature an Apple part number of 616-0675 and other familiar markings.

That being said, there are some discrepancies in the other parts shown in the photos. Below you’ll see a shot of an alleged display for the 5.5-inch iPhone, but some say it looks too similar to the 4.7-inch panels we’ve seen, making it hard to buy as a new part.

And the same goes for the logic board, which also seems to line up perfectly with previously leaked components for the 4.7-inch model—down to the connectors. It’s unlikely that the internals of the two devices, which differ in size by .8 inches, are identical.

Anyway, Apple Daily says that the design of the larger iPhone 6 is reminiscent of the LG G3 and HTC’s M8, due to its wider body and rounded corners. It also says its source referred to the model as the iPhone 6L, and speculates that the L stands for ‘Large.’

Apple is expected to unveil both models of the iPhone 6 at a media event on Tuesday, September 9th. The consensus is that the 4.7-inch version will be available shortly after the event, with the 5.5-inch version coming weeks later due to production issues.

    • I have a feeling. The 6L will be the better phone for a lot of reasons. Higher internal capacity (128), bigger battery, ‘Sapphire’ Glass, a better rear camera with a lens that doesn’t stick out. A centered FaceTime camera like the 5 series ( We saw the 4.7 is moved back to the side like the 4 Series) and last but not least maybe even stereo speakers.

    This looks cool

    • Kairos

      You interface is ugly. Mine is so much nicer looking

      • Your* . You’re welcome and that interface is not ugly.

      • Eni

        Just becose you use AdBlock? I could use it too but i want to support iDB and others.

      • Antzboogie

        Adblock is the best app seriously. Support them how by looking at ads? Lol Buying cheap China phones? lol.

      • packerrd

        You don’t really need to buy anything. They’ll receive a couple of cents just getting the ads loaded to you device, you can simply ignore the ad and support the site.

        At the end, you’re just those type of people that like to take away from the table but not put anything back to it.

    I think it’s time Apple should announce WWDC, people are going crazy with these leaks every other day.

    • TJ

      WWDC has been and gone, there won’t be another one until June 2015.

      • Star Lord

        Keynote or whatever it is. They just need to announce it. Lol

    • The iPhones are no longer announced at WWDC, they have their own event now. This year the date is supposedly September 9th. So close but so far…

    • Gustaf

      WWDC is in June next year, although the iPhone press conference is planned for September 9th

  • Jamessmooth

    Ya had me until 6L stands for Large, Apple Daily…

    • It will grow on you especially when the iPhone 6LS comes out. LS sounds very sexy and fitting.

      • n0ahcruz3

        Sounds Lexus-ish.. Lol

      • JayDee917

        I wonder if there will be 6CL. Then that means there will be a 6CLS, Mercedes style.

      • Neil Sardesai

        Isn’t Apple typically against weird, complex version names?

      • Yes and if Im not mistaken they were against putting bigger screens on their phones. 6LS doesn’t seem too weird or complex.

  • Mohammed

    Thats one long as* battery

    • That’s what she said.

      • Mohammed

        Why would she cares about how long my battery is

      • Because it didn’t last long…

  • felixtaf

    Forget about the display size! Am cashing in for that battery. Yay!

  • chris125

    If only this battery was in the smaller version..

  • That is the same 4.7 screen part we have seen already everything lines up exactly with the black screen posted the other day. The board is also for the 4.7in. The only thing for the 6L is that battery.

  • Yujin

    The front panel looks small in that guys hand. Very suspicious.

  • :L

    You don’t compare iPhone 6 to Galaxy S5 You compare it to Galaxy Alpha and I doubt it gonna beat Galaxy Alpha on battery.

    • Johannes Mertens

      Galaxy Alpha has a 1900mah Battery, so this battery is about 1000Mah stronger.

      • Tsk Tsk

        You don’t actually know that because no one knows if this is even legit. It might be it might not be 2915. Until the phone actually comes out.

      • Johannes Mertens

        I was reffering to what seems to be Printed on that battery.

      • chris125

        Galaxy alpha doesn’t have5.5″ screen either though. It has 1900mah battery and 4.7 iPhone has rumored 1810

    • Scope

      You don’t compare it to Alpha either. Galaxy Alpha is not the follow up to Galaxy s5 it’s just a different phone. The s5 has a 2800 mAh battery. It actually makes more sense to compare I to the s5.

  • JulianZH

    3000mAh…. me want!!!

    • jack


  • mike

    We’ve been over this: it’s not about size, it’s how you use it

  • Justin Mahone

    iPhone 10, the screen is as big as a iPad, and the iPad is as big as the MacBook.

  • Lagax

    The Battery seems fake as the Point where ‘Apple’ should be standing is pasted over with this sticker.
