A lot has already been talked about the upcoming iPhone series, tipped as the iPhone 13 series. We have witnessed several rumors, leaks and speculations revolve around the handsets in the past few months. However, a new report coming from reliable analyst Ming Chi-Kuo (via Macrumors) talks about the upcoming handset’s batteries. In his latest note, Kuo says that Apple will be taking new space saving measures for the iPhone 13 and will be using it to fit a higher capacity battery.

The company has reportedly figured out a way to include larger batteries inside the phone's body by reducing the thickness of the front optical modules and integrating the SIM card slot with the motherboard.

However Kuo adds that including a larger battery in the iPhone will also mean that the devices will be heavier as compared to the iPhone 12 models.

It's worth mentioning that according to several tear downs, it has been revealed that iPhone 12 comes with a rather small 2815mAh battery. However, due to the OS optimizations and the chipset efficiency it is able to last longer than iPhone 11 devices, despite the latter having more battery capacity.

And with that kind of efficiency, a higher battery capacity will only make the iPhone 13 a better device when it comes to battery performance.

In the past, Kuo has also mentioned that iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max may feature 120Hz refresh rate OLED displays and smaller notches. Also mentioned is that Apple may continue to make iPhone 13 Mini despite facing a lackluster performance of iPhone 12 Mini.

According to tipster Jon Prosser, the company may not launch the iPhone SE 2021 this year as its position might be taken by the iPhone 13 Mini. However, if only Apple plans to launch the ‘SE’ model, it might be the ‘SE Plus’.
