The arrival of winter means the beginning of leaks of the next Apple iPhone, in this case the iPhone 16. Until now we have not seen any leaked images nor leaks with a good basis to begin to build the story around this new device. However, a few hours ago some new images were published of what could be the batteries of the next iPhone 16 with big changes Compared to other generations: a change in material, shape and a slight increase in capacity will be key for this new iPhone 16.
Improvements in the batteries of the new iPhone 16 in sight
Apple has had a lot of problems with its devices overheating in recent years. In some cases, this overheating may be related to intensive use of the processor, excessive loading of applications or even hardware problems, which is what would make it most difficult to solve. Overall, Apple tends to address these issues through software updates to improve performance management and thermal efficiency, such as what has happened with the iPhone 15.
iOS 18 will bring generative AI but the iPhone 16 will have exclusive features
A new user leak @Kosutami in X (former Twitter) has shown the next iPhone 16 battery. In the different images we can see the changes. First of all, the increase in its capacity from the current 3274 mAh to 3355 mAh of this alleged internal prototype of iPhone 16 Pro, which means almost 2.5% more compared to the iPhone 15 Pro.

But there is not only this change, look at the battery case. We would not recognize it if we did not know that it was an Apple device because until now it had been used a black casing to cover the battery as a heatsink. Now Apple makes use of a frosted metal casing. This is very much in line with the leaks in recent weeks that suggested that the iPhone 16 would introduce changes to the heat dissipation system, going from the copper heatsink to the graphene heatsink.
Graphene is very useful for several reasons, including high thermal conductivity, surpassing copper, which would help maintain low temperatures inside the iPhone, It also highlights its lightness and flexibility in addition to its good electrical conductivity. Besides, graphene may be more resistant in certain erosive environments compared to copper, maintaining its thermal properties at high temperatures.
