The battery capacity of the iPhone 209 models that Apple will release this year is set to receive a boost. In September, the iPhone 11 as it is presumptively named, is expected to launch with more power, the fundamental reason being the support for reverse wireless charging.
Ming-Chi Kuo, the noted analyst that reports Apple Insider’s Mike Wuerthele and others, offered these details. The increase the iPhone 11 Max will see is of around 20 to 25 percent while between 10 and 15 percent will be in the regular iPhone 11. The iPhone XR will get the smallest improvement of about five percent.
The new iPhone 2019 models will “reverse charge” Qi-enabled devices thanks to the battery size that gets increased, those devices being, for example, the new wireless charging case for the AirPods 2. As the phone will have extra capacity, it means that peripherals will be topped up while retaining the same daily endurance of the iPhone.
iPhone 2019 models, the iPhone 11 series, would come with battery improvements
The battery capacity of the iPhone 2019 models will be brought closer to the larger Android handsets thanks to the knock-on effect this change will have. As critical territories such as China have different buying decisions, and they rely more on specifications than on walled garden operating systems, the capacity of the iPhone 11 Max might be similar to handsets like the 4100 mAh Galaxy S10+ if it is fitted with a 3950 mAh battery.
Apple, as expected, is proud of the unfashionably thin smartphones it produces, so it means that something has to give if they add extra volume for the battery cells. If you are an Apple fan, you can recall that in late 2018 Apple suggested that 3D Touch will be dropped from the 2019 handsets along with the move to a thinner but more expensive display. We’ll have to wait until fall 2019 to see the new iPhone 11 series come out.
