New rumors about the next iPhones appear every week, even if the official presentation of them will not take place until the fall. For example, in a recent article, our colleagues at MacRumors relay a publication by Majin Bu, a source of leaks which is regularly relayed by the media, about the batteries of the iPhone 16 series.
According to this new information, Apple would increase the battery capacity of the iPhone 16 Pro Max by 5%, compared to the battery of the iPhone 15 Pro Max, to reach 4,676 mAh. On the other hand, according to the same publication, on the iPhone 16 Plus, the firm would reduce this capacity by 9%. The standard iPhone 16, on the other hand, is said to have a larger battery, by 6%, compared to the iPhone 15 battery.
In his publication, Majin Bu also indicates that the iPhone 16 Pro Max would have a different internal structure than its predecessor. And thanks to this change, this model would be equipped with a rectangular battery instead of the L-shaped battery.
Based on the information I managed to obtain, the new iPhone 16 will have a 3561 mAh battery, while the 16 plus should have a 4006 mAh battery and the 16 Pro Max, should be equipped with a 4676 mAh battery that is no longer L- shaped due to the redesign of the internal structure… pic.twitter.com/T7VuhQ6Brs

As usual, the information should be considered with caution, since it does not come from an official source. Furthermore, according to the MacRumors site, Majin Bu previously published information that later turned out to be incorrect. Furthermore, it is difficult to understand why Apple would reduce the battery capacity of the iPhone 16 Plus, while it increases this capacity on the iPhone 16 and the iPhone Pro Max.
But, in any case, the firm should improve the autonomy on its next iPhones, thanks to the processors. Indeed, like every year, the models of the iPhone 16 series will probably use different processors than those used by the predecessors. And normally, this processor change leads to an improvement in energy efficiency, which improves battery life.
New chips, better heat dissipation
Additionally, the rumors about the iPhone 16 series processors are very interesting. Everything suggests that all new iPhones in 2024 will be equipped with chips engraved in 3 nm. On the iPhone 16 and iPhone Plus, this should result in a performance gain as well as a gain in battery life. The iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max, meanwhile, could use an upgraded version of the A17 Pro chip from the iPhone 15 Pro Max.
Finally, it should be remembered that Apple is working on a new heat dissipation system, based on graphene, which would better evacuate the heat generated by the device. And this should also have an impact on performance.
