“Apple has heard iPhone users’ gripes about poor battery life and decided to do something about it with the upcoming iPhone 6,” Patrick Seitz reports for Investor’s Business Daily. “The 4.7-inch model of the iPhone 6 could ship with a 2,100 mAh (milliampere hour) capacity battery, rather than the 1,810 mAh battery previously speculated for the handset, ESM-China analyst Sung Chang Xu said on Weibo this week. She said her statement was based on supply-chain sources. The current iPhone 5S has a 1,560 mAh battery.”

“However, given that the new iPhone will have a bigger display and faster components than its predecessor, the larger battery might not translate into longer battery life,” Seitz reports. “The current iPhone 5 series has a 4-inch display. A second version of the iPhone 6 is expected to have a 5.5-inch screen.”

“A survey of more than 1,500 people by WalletHero in May found that longer battery life is the top feature desired in the iPhone 6,” Seitz reports. “Respondents were allowed to pick multiple choices when asked about their hopes for the next iPhone. Longer battery life was the top choice, with 97% of respondents, followed by larger screen (85%), better camera (73%) and faster processor (43%).”
