According to the Twitter user “RGcloudS,” as noted by MacRumors, the iPhone 15 lineup for increased energy density and longer life.
A stacked battery cell uses a manufacturing technique called lamination, where the elements and separators are folded into zig-zag layers instead of being rolled up. \
“Since there is less wasted space within the packaged cell, more active material can be included, resulting in a greater overall capacity,” notes MacRumors. “This allows a stacked battery to achieve higher energy density compared to a wound battery. Heat is also distributed more uniformly across the cell, rather than being concentrated in a single area, prolonging the battery’s lifespan.”
