The Filings showed that the battery in the iPhone 5s is 1,570 mAh , while the iPhone 5c battery clocks in at 1,507 mAh. The iPhone 5 had a battery of just 1,440 mAh. According to the Anandtech report, regulatory filings have proved erroneous in the past, so the information about the battery may not be completely accurate.

The jumps represent a 5% bump in the size of the iPhone 5c battery and a 10% jump in the iPhone 5s battery. More information about the new battery, and all of the other internals of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, when the phone is released and sites are able to rip it apart and study its insides.

The iPhone 5c is being touted as a mistake by many Wall Street analysts and tech journalists alike. The 5% increase in battery life over the iPhone 5 may not seem like much, but it is another incremental improvement on a great device.

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) shareholders will have to wait for the result of the December quarter before they get a real feel for the sales of the iPhone 5c. Until then they’ll  have to work with the partial results from the third quarter and analyst guesses.

Shares in Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) are trading above $470 again after losing a large amount of value in the wake of the iPhone 5c release.
