Apple iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c FCC documents appear, reveal little (update: battery sizes)


Right on time, as Apple's launch event finishes the FCC publishes test documents for its latest hardware. After pawing through the stack we didn't spot any surprises for the iPhone 5c or iPhone 5s -- with their wide LTE compatibility and Bluetooth 4.0 LE covered there's little missing other than 802.11ac WiFi -- or internal photos exposing the new 64-bit A7 chip. Still, there are external pics (a few are included after the break) showing some of the frequency and exposure testing endured by each phone, and enough band information for those interested to stay busy until they actually go on sale.

Update: AnandTech has done a bit more digging and found some battery specs in the FCC documents, suggesting the equivalent of a 1,570 mAh battery in the iPhone 5s (which is slightly higher than the original iPhone 5's 1,440 mAh and is likely necessary to power all those extra transistors in the A7 chip), and a 1,507 mAh battery in the iPhone 5c.
