Apple iPhone 6S Plus has a smaller battery than iPhone 6 Plus

The Apple iPhone 6S Plus, which goes on sale at the end of the week, has a smaller battery pack than its predecessor, according to reports.

Taiwanese site AppleClub (via MacRumors) claims to have dug out a battery pack showing a 2,750mAh cell, compared to the 2,915mAh battery contained within the iPhone 6 Plus.

This ties in with previous rumours ahead of the device’s launch and also follows last week’s discovery that the iPhone 6S has a 1,716Ah battery compared with the 2014 model’s 1,810mAh cell.

For its part, Apple has claimed the battery life for both devices remains the same as the 2014 models.

This would suggest that the new processors allow the battery to operate more efficiently.

But why reduce the battery size? Well, word has it that the firm’s new 3D Touch display takes up a little more space within the device, which retains the same physical dimensions.

While the iPhone 6S’ battery size was spotted during an official Apple promotional video, there’s no such confirmation for today’s news.

However, given previous rumours, we’d suggest there’s plenty of legitimacy in the reports emanating from Taiwan.
