Photos of a purported battery for the 'iPhone 5' have surfaced on 9to5Mac. The battery packs have a slighter greater capacity than previous generation batteries.

This new battery features a capacity of 1440 mAh. That is up from the capacity of 1430 mAh on the iPhone 4S and up from 1420 mAh on the iPhone 4, according to iPhone repair shop iFixYouri, whom examined the battery photos.

Notably, the battery also features a new voltage of 3.8, up from 3.7 on the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S.

The new battery also has an increased watts-per-hour measurement (wHr), 5.45 wHr, which is an increase from 5.25 and 5.3 on the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S, respectively. This is a proportional increase due to the increase from 1430 to 1440 mAh.

The battery is marked as being produced in June of this year. Take a look at the photos below.

The higher the voltage the the less amperage it uses. Maybe that's why such a small bump in voltage & battery size.

Even more evidence that we can expect the same old regurgitated phone from apple. The world desperately needs a new mobile OS.

Maybe but if apple would just put out 2 iphones like there expected with there iPads this year then problem solved

That is not a very big increase. But maybe their new screens use less juice or something and it will balance out.

Ah-ha! Got it now. They needed to push nanoSIM standard to they could squeeze in 10mAh more. Makes sense.
