iPhone 14 Pro To Gain Larger Battery For Always-On Display
Apple is expected to announce a raft of new products on September 7, and part of that lineup is set to include the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Now, a new report claims that those buying those devices can expect larger batteries than previous models.
Writing via the weekly Power On newsletter, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman says that the new devices will have larger batteries to compensate for the extra power that will be required to make the new always-on display work.
While Apple will already save power thanks to the new 1Hz refresh rate of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, it’s thought that the larger batteries will still be required to ensure all-day battery life.
The devices themselves are expected to grow physically, like to make space for the larger batteries. Apple is already thought to be ditching the notch this time around.
Beyond the notch, I’m told to expect the iPhone 14 Pro models to appear slightly larger overall and include slimmer bezels. They will have bigger batteries too.
If all goes according to plan Apple will announce its new iPhones on September 7, with pre-orders beginning on September 9. We can then expect the devices to go on sale on September 16. Apple is also expected to announce new Apple Watches, including a new Apple Watch Pro that will feature a larger screen and more rugged features.
