Apple Watch 2 component leak suggests bigger battery and thinner display

We’re less than one week out from Apple’s annual iPhone announcement, but we’re already seeing details leak out about the other big product on the agenda. The Apple Watch 2, which the company is expected to detail next Wednesday, is said to pack in more battery life and possibly contain a GPS chip. Now, a component leak from electronics shop Byte, posted to YouTube today, seems to suggest these rumors might be true. The video shows a torn down Apple Watch with a larger 1.35Wh battery, compared with the original 42mm Apple Watch’s 0.94Wh battery. Of course, what we really want to know is the milliampere-hour (mAh) number, but we won’t be able to glean that until we know what voltage the device’s battery is running at. Still, the news bodes well for rumors Apple needs the larger battery capacity to power GPS.
