iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus Battery Size Revealed via Certification Site
  • Apple never officially reveals iPhone battery capacity
  • Usually, teardowns reveal the missing information
  • For now, certification site listings are a decent indicator

Each Apple iPhone launch brings along its own set of uncertainties – and no, we aren't talking about the decision to upgrade. The Cupertino-based company never reveals certain specifications – like battery capacity and the amount of RAM – and instead, we have to wait till the first teardowns to learn these details.

Last week, ahead of the first teardowns, we learnt how much memory the iPhone 7 Plus sports thanks to benchmark and certification site listings. Now, Chinese telecommunications certification site Tenaa is once again the source of new information – this time the battery capacity of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

According to the Tenaa listings of Apple's new smartphones, as noted by Mobipicker, the iPhone 7 sports a 1960mAh battery – a bump up from the 1715mAh battery on the iPhone 6s. Meanwhile, the iPhone 7 Plus sports a 2900mAh battery – a similar sized bump up from the 2750mAh battery on the iPhone 6s Plus.

Of course, while certification site listings are usually credible, waiting for the first teardowns to make their way to the Web is recommended.

Like every year, and as expected, Apple is touting the increased battery life on its latest smartphone offerings. As you'd expect with the latest iterations, Apple also says the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have the best battery life of any iPhone till date. The company credited the increase in battery life to the Apple A10 Fusion SoC on board, which features two high-performance cores and two high-efficiency cores. The company said that alongside the 14 percent larger battery on the iPhone 7, this leads to a battery life that's 2 hours longer compared to the iPhone 6s.
