First any parts for the new 5c won't be available for quite awhile.

As to the battery its' self its' just to soon to tell if Apple altered things so the connections are not compatible. You will need to wait for the IFIXIT teardown to see what is discovered.

If you have a working battery in your phone now I wouldn't waste the money (or risks of damaging) swapping the battery to try to get the few minutes more of life the slightly larger battery offers if that was your intent.

No they are different wattage and voltage they are not compatable. If they connections are the same using the wrong battery will fry your iPhone 5 board. I am a repair tech and I see it all the time I makes your phone not last as long and can cause your problems.

Alec - FYI: Wattage is a measure of storage as such you could use a battery with a higher wattage without any issues. But, you are correct Voltage can be a factor depending on how high and what the device was designed to handle. This is where the tolerance of the power regulation circuit of the device becomes the limiting factor. While it might work at the start, over time it could fatigue the circuit to a point of failure prematurely (over heat).

It fits but the connector is 3 poles instead of 4 poles. If you plug it leaving the 4th contact unused the phone will power on, but it will reboot after the apple logo.
