Leaked iPhone 16 Pro battery reveals new metal casing
A few weeks ago, a report revealed that Apple is developing new battery technologies to increase the battery life of its products. However, this technology is not expected to be ready anytime soon. Meanwhile, it looks like Apple will be adopting a new metal-cased battery design for the iPhone 16 Pro.
Apple is working on a new battery design for the iPhone 16 Pro
In the photo he shared Kusutami is X (formerly Twitter), we get a first look at the component rumored to be part of next year’s iPhones. According to Kusutami, the leaked battery is an “early stage” prototype designed for the iPhone 16 Pro. It has a capacity of 3,355 mAh, which is not much more than the 3,274 mAh battery in the iPhone 15 Pro.
The leaked battery features the same L-shaped design that Apple uses in its iPhone batteries. However, unlike any other iPhone battery, this one is covered in a metal shell instead of the traditional foil cover.
Since we’re a year away from announcing the iPhone 16, Apple may scrap its plans and reuse the same battery design as current iPhone generations. However, if the prototype is real and the new battery passes the tests, we could see significant improvements when it comes to heat dissipation.
The metal casing would help distribute the heat better rather than concentrate it. With the iPhone 15 Pro, Apple faced many complaints about devices overheating for no reason, so the company will likely work on improving temperatures for the next iPhone.
It is worth noting that Kosutami has a good record of leaking things related to Apple. In September, Kosutami shared images of the new Apple Watch FineWven band ahead of an Apple event. The leaker also showed images of a HomePod prototype with an LCD display, which was later confirmed 9to5Mac sources.
