Apple iPhone XR Upgrade Could Feature Bigger Battery

2019 Apple iPhone Ben Geskin

At this point, the iPhone XS Max is the version boasting the biggest battery capacity at 3,171 mAh, but it also has a larger screen and, consequently, more space under the hood.

According to a new report, the iPhone XR successor will bring further improvement in the battery.

Last year, Apple came out with three distinctive iPhones for the first time. iPhone the XS and the iPhone XS Max were the premium devices and worthy upgrade of iPhone X. At the same time, Apple also showcased an affordable iPhone from the X series, the iPhone XR.

Korean electronics media site The Elec claimed that the upcoming iPhone XR2 (or iPhone 11R) will have a 3,110 mAh battery, which is at least 5 percent bigger than the battery used in the iPhone XR. While majority got stage time, some didn't and one of them was the "Optimised battery charging" feature. Keep in mind that Apple makes money selling Lightning to third party accessory makers so it's unlikely that it will move its entire iPhone lineup over to USB-C. The company is already known for providing the batteries that substituted the catching-fire SDI units inside the problematic Galaxy Note 7.

Well-connected industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted the next generation iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR would see their battery capacities increase by 20 to 25%, 10 to 15%, and up to 5% respectively. It even has a small description below the toggle button stating "To reduce battery ageing, iPhone learns from your daily charging routing so it can wait to finish charging past 80% until you need to use it.' What this means is that the iPhones with iOS 13 will make sure they don't stay connected to a power source for long after the batteries reach 100%". It is being predicted that there won't be many changes made in the overall design of the phone except to allow for the housing of the dual camera setup in the rear.

The front of the smartphone is likely to feature a wide notch to house the Face ID module and have the same 6.1-inch LCD display.
