Rumors about Apple's plans for a revamped cooling system in the upcoming iPhone 16 series seem to be gaining traction, and a recent leak offers a sneak peek at the speculated changes. The focus of attention is the iPhone 16 Pro battery prototype, showcasing an innovative brushed metal bracket enveloping the battery, presumably contributing to enhanced heat dissipation.
Details from the leak unveil the Li-Ion battery cell of the purported iPhone 16 Pro, boasting a 3,355 mAh (13.02Wh) capacity. Notably, this critical component is crafted by China's Desay Corporation. Its familiar J-shape, reminiscent of the iPhone 15 Pro series batteries, catches the eye. For context, the iPhone 15 Pro features a slightly smaller 3,274mAh battery capacity.
