The battery connector is no match against our trusty spudger. Just like we saw in the iPhone 8, Apple ditched the tricky tri-points we're accustomed to seeing on this bracket and replaced them with Phillips #000 screws.

Also mirroring the iPhone 8, we find four battery tabs, where in prior years there were but two.

Taking a closer look at the battery, we find a 3.82 V, 2691 mAh cell providing 10.28 Wh of power.

The 8 Plus packs less of a punch than its predecessor—the iPhone 7 Plus boasted a 3.82 V, 2900 mAh cell coming in at 11.1 Wh.

It's also a lightweight stacked up against the Galaxy Note8, which sports 12.71 Wh (3300 mAh at 3.85 V) of power.

Lest you worry about the hard hit to the battery spec, Apple promises the battery life will remain a contender with last year's model.
