New iPhone SE has nearly 10% larger physical battery

The news: In the first publicized teardown of the brand new budget iPhone, PBKreviews found the actual spec of the new battery inside.

  • Apple’s newest iPhone SE ships with a larger 2,018 mAh battery, which is nearly 10% larger than the 1,821 mAh pack found in the previous-generation
  • The A15 chip inside should also propel battery life even further due to its power efficiency

Sam’s take: There is no better news for me than hearing about physically larger batteries inside of iPhones. For years, Apple would keep the same batteries (or sometimes even shrink them) due to minor power advancements from the processor: but nothing compares to a pack that can simply hold more juice. This 10% mAh upgrade should be a moderate upgrade.
