iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus torn down to reveal 1810mAh and 2915mAh batteries
Apple’s 2014 Keynote has come and gone. The event, streamed by thousands of viewers worldwide, witnessed the launch of the Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6 smartphones.
Much was said about the features of the two phones but Apple didn’t seem to remember (or didn’t want to include) two things — RAM and battery size.
Well, thanks to the guys at iFixit, the two smartphones went under the knife and most of their internals were revealed for everybody to see.
iPhone 6 Plus
The 5.5″ iPhone showed the stuff it’s made as iFixit went for the most important thing concealed inside that 7.1mm-thin body, the chipset.
They found out the iPhone 6 Plus was using an Apple A8 APL1011 System-on chip, while the memory is a Elpida 1GB LPDDR3 RAM — a TSMC-made 20nm Apple A8 chipset and 1GB of RAM. Further findings revealed the phone is lit up by a 2915mAh battery which we knew even before the new iPhones debuted.
The iPhone 6 didn’t have much alteration in terms of processing hardware. The Apple smartphone sports the exact same Apple A8 APL1011 chipset on a 20nm process as well as 1GB of RAM.
The Apple iPhone 6 holds a 1810mAh battery within which Apple claims can last up to 259 hours on standby and then up to 14 hours on phone calls.
