Bigger battery may make iPhone less appealing, says Jony Ive 

While the whole world is talking about Apple Watch, there are rumors about another iPhone version, iPhone 6S. Many rumors and leaks suggest that Cupertino based Apple may be planning to come out with a slightly better version of the top selling smartphone in the world to continue the buzz around it.

Ever since their launch, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have remained the highest selling handsets in the world. No other handset actually comes close to them. The two devices have made Samsung look like minnows.

Now Apple design chief Jony Ive has given way to some more rumors. While talking to the Financial Times, Ivy when asked, whether a longer lasting battery would help millions of iPhone users said, “You love your iPhone because it’s so gorgeous and light. The fact that it’s so gorgeous and light means you use it more. The fact that you use it more means your battery runs out more often. Conversely, if Apple inserted a bigger battery, the phone would be heavier. You would therefore not feel as much affection toward it. You would find it cumbersome”.

It is needless to say that Apple is actually more concerned about aesthetics of its devices than their specifications. Some people are of the view that the logic expressed by Ive showed that the Cupertino-based electronics giant is overly pretentious toward design.
