Leaked iPhone 16 Pro battery images reveal new metal casing for better heat dispersal

Filipe Espósito for 9to5Mac:
The leaked battery has the same L-shaped design that Apple uses in its iPhone batteries. However, unlike any other iPhone battery, this one is covered by a metal shell instead of the traditional foil covering.
Since we’re a year away from the announcement of the iPhone 16, Apple may scrap its plans and reuse the same battery design as the current iPhone generations. However, if the prototype is real and the new battery passes the tests, we may see significant improvements when it comes to heat dissipation.
A metal shell would help better distribute the heat rather than concentrating it. With the iPhone 15 Pro, Apple faced many complaints about devices overheating for no reason, so the company is likely working on improved thermals for the next iPhone.
