iResQ has obtained a battery for the next generation iPhone and compared it to the battery found in the iPhone 4S.

Key Differences:
1. The iPhone 5's battery is slightly less than a half an inch taller than the iPhone 4S. The thickness appears to be identical. UPDATE - Although, the thickness appears to be the same, the iPhone 5 battery is ever so slightly thinner. With an eye test, the iPhone 5 battery is maybe 1-2mm thinner.

2. The iPhone 5 is 3.8V/5.45Whr while the iPhone 4S is 3.7V/5.3Whr.

3. The connector on the iPhone 5 is not only different, it is placed on the opposite side of the battery to accomodiate its new position within the iPhone.

4. The iPhone 5 battery weighs approximately .80oz. The iPhone 4S battery is approximately .96oz

Apple has announced an event for September 12th at which it is expected to unveil the next generation iPhone.

In #3 - You might want to correct the spelling of "accommodate". 2 Cs and 2 Ms. How does the proofreader get it wrong even with Spellcheck? In your opinion is it worth buying the S5?

Man, it looks like only Steve Jobs could keep a corporate secret. Now that he's died, there's not a single thing about the iPhone 5 that hasn't already been leaked. And you know what that means, as soon as it's released, all the "Experts" will decry that it offers "Nothing New" while it sets all new sales records.

Awesome, I haven't had really any battery issues on my 4S, but improved battery life is always better, my only real concern is when aftermarket vendors will begins manufacturing and distributing anodized colored housing frames for the 5 and colored LCD/Digitizer assemblies as well
