There are all kinds of rumors going around about the iPhone 6‘s advanced battery life. Here’s what we know so far.


1. Solar Powered Battery Boost

Forbes has suggested that there is evidence that the iPhone 6 will be capable of on-the-go charging, thanks to solar cells. It is possible that Apple will launch the iPhone 6 with sapphire glass screens, which could have embedded solar cell channels. If your battery got low, you could conceivably place the iPhone 6 in a sunny patch on your desk and watch it charge.


2. An Android-Sized Battery

Ubergizmo makes the valid point that iPhone users dislike the phone’s limited battery life. The iPhone 5s has a 1,560mAh battery, which is nothing compared to some Android phones that pack a 3,300mAh battery. Apple is expected to increase battery size for this very reason…assuming the phone doesn’t also have solar charging technology, which would enable the device to have a smaller battery and a thinner form factor.


3. Rapid Charging

A massive battery capacity doesn’t mean anything at all unless the battery is also capable of rapid charging. Forbes argues that the iPhone 6 will need to offer rapid battery charging in order to stay competitive with Android phones.


4. Wireless Charging

According to a report in the Australian edition of the International Business Times:

“Apple’s upcoming flagship phone…may feature wireless charging contrary to earlier reports. A new patent sighting reveals that Apple is interested in manufacturing wireless charging docks. The patent reported focuses on wireless charging docks for mobile devices. Additionally, the tech giant will reportedly include additional smart features to the dock on top of wireless charging.”


5. The Battery May Not Get a Significant Boost After All

CNET pegs the chances of an iPhone 6 having improved battery life at around 35 percent. The consumer’s best bet for better battery life with an iPhone 6 may be to adjust settings, such as screen brightness and auto-lock. This could help extend battery life.
