If you’ve been wishing iPhones would last longer, a leaked photo showing the battery of the iPhone 5S (check out Apple iPhone 5S here) suggests just this.

The leak comes to us via MacRumors (check out site here). According to the site, “MacRumors has received several images that appear to show both the interior and rear shell of Apple's upcoming iPhone 5S. The device appears to carry the same redesigned logic board that appeared earlier this week, suggesting that this is indeed a new iPhone.”

Speaking about the battery, the site says, “The battery carries a more recent Apple Part Number of 616-0652 compared to the iPhone 5 battery, which has carried several different part numbers including 616-0611 and 616-0613. The new battery also has a higher capacity of 5.92 Whr, compared to the 5.45 Whr capacity of the iPhone 5's battery. The battery also has several blank boxes printed on it where various regulatory logos would be, suggesting that this is a prototype battery yet to receive final certifications.”
