According to Korean website The Elec, the iPhone XR 2 will come packaged with a 3,110 mAh battery, which is close to six percent larger than the 2,942 mAh battery in 2018's model. Apple might be using more generic visuals to convey the message that you need to connect the iPhone to a MacBook.

Apple last week introduced its iOS 13, the operating system that is now specific to iPhones only, with several new features. Now, amidst all the rumours surrounding the three upcoming iPhones, a new report has "revealed" the battery details of the iPhone XR successor, tipped as iPhone XR 2. It scored more than 11 hours of screen-on time in our grueling test, ahead of any iPhone we have tested so far. The leak has even named the Chinese company Ameperx Technology Limited, which is making these batteries and they say the bulk production has already started.

Although the jump in battery capacity might not seem all important to some, it actually is.

The upcoming iPhone XR 2 is also being speculated as coming with Apple's A13 processor, made with a second generation 7nm process that would increase the battery performance, thus offering a longer battery life as compared to the iPhone XR. The iPhone XS Max's battery tops out at 3,171mAh but is constructed in a unique multi-cell L-shape to fit inside the device.

Companies manufacturing products in China, he predicted, would soon begin moving to the USA - including automaker General Motors. Trump has repeatedly claimed that tariffs are a key tool of negotiations, pointing to his most recent trade scuffle with Mexico.

However, he also said the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max would be getting a bigger boost, with 20-25% and 10-15% increases in capacity respectively.

Here's how the iPhone XR (2019) may look like, as rendered by graphics artist Hasan Kaymak based on rumors, leaked CAD drawings, and analyst expectations.

While Apple is known for its secrecy, the brand is known for leaking information about its future products deep within new versions of iOS.
