Apple is rumored to be working an overhauled cooling setup for its iPhone 16 series and we now get our first set of confirmation with a leak of the iPhone 16 Pro battery prototype. The images reveal the battery is encased in a brushed metal bracket which is likely aiding in the heat dissipation process.
The leaked iPhone 16 Pro’s Li-Ion battery cell is listed with a 3,355 mAh (13.02Wh) capacity and is manufactured by China’s Desay Corporation. It features the same J-shape as the batteries on the iPhone 15 Pro series.
For reference, the iPhone 15 Pro features a slightly smaller 3,274mAh battery cell capacity. It remains to be seen if this early prototype battery design and capacity will end up being the ones used on iPhone 16 Pro production models.
