iPhone 7 batter inside a iPhone 6s

Currently my phones battery health is only at 82% and it isnt getting me through the day, so I was wondering if I could take a Iphone 7 battery and transfer it into my 6s. In my head it looks like it would work, considering the connectors are the same and all I would have to do is bend the flex cable a little bit/seat the battery differently to make it fit nicely. I have looked around but cannot find any solid answers for my question besides amazon/ebay/ifixit telling me “This battery is only compatible with the iphone 7”

Is it possible?

As you say, the connector is the same but the flex length is different. You may be able to bend it in place but be careful not to kink the flex. I mix and match batteries all the time for testing purposes but not when sealing a device

The iPhone 7 battery is smaller in length and width than the iPhone 6S battery and by quite a margin however it is thicker so it’s unclear if this will fit “properly” inside an iPhone 6S due to vertical clearance. If it does fit, you will get a nice boost in design capacity (1960 mAh vs 1710mAh).

So my suggestion is to try it and then post back so others will know from your first hand experience :>).
