If you're getting tired of seeing the purported guts of the iPhone 5, we feel for you. But it's like following a cookie crumb trail that might, possibly, hopefully lead us to some real semblance of information about the next iPhone. Or at least help us connect the dots. Case in point: here's the rumored iPhone 5 battery. It's taller and bigger.

Why does it matter that this leaked iPhone 5 battery is taller? Well, all the leaked cases of the iPhone 5 have so far shown an iPhone that's taller than its predecessor. And if the iPhone 5 really is taller, the iPhone 5 would theoretically have more room for its internals which means more room for a battery which mean more room for a TALLER battery which means more legitimacy in the rumored taller iPhone 5 design. Full circle and all that. Not to mention that a bigger battery could power all the 4G action the iPhone 5 will supposedly/probably have. Those faster 4G speeds suck batteries dry, a bigger battery would obviously help battery life in the iPhone 5.

iResq, the guys who've had their hands in leaked parts before, says the battery for the iPhone 5 is 3.8V/5.45Whr while the iPhone 4S is 3.7V/5.3Whr. The battery is nearly half an inch taller than the 4S battery but also thinner (which fits along with the iPhone 5 being a smidge thinner than the 4S). So how does the battery fit within the leaked iPhone 5 case? Perfectly. How convenient! Take a look:

So again, leaked internal parts fitting perfectly into the leaked iPhone case might very well mean the rumored two-tone, elongated body is very real. Or a very, very excellent fake. [iResq via MacRumors]

This is shaping up to be the most boring iPhone release day yet. We know what it's going to be called and we know what it's going to look like. Short of Steve Jobs appearing on the stage or some mindblowing feature of iOS6, meh.
