iPhone 5, iPad 3 rumors: LTE could mean bigger battery, analyst says

Carlo Raphael Diokno at popherald.com believes that the next-generation iDevices will have to integrate a heavier battery if they are to feature LTE technology.

In an article published on Monday, Diokno writes that Apple will need to insert a heavier battery if it plans on introducing Long-Term Evolution to its gadgets in 2012.

Reports have long speculated that the future iPhone 5 and iPad 3 will integrate LTE for faster uploads and downloads.

The analyst notes that even though Apple’s rival, Android, is already providing faster wireless technology, a major drawback for Android LTE phones is their poor battery life.

Diokno also concludes that if the Cupertino company decides to add either the 4G/3G toggle or 4G, there is a high possibility that the next-gen iPhone and iPad will be thicker due to antenna and the battery.
