Next-Generation iPhones Will Have Smaller Batteries

A report was shared by renowned Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. According to the report, the batteries to be used in the iPhone 13 family will be smaller and will take up less space. Apple can thus launch new iPhones with a slimmer design. Almost all batteries used in smartphones today are the same and only their capacities varies among models. However, with the iPhone 13 series, Apple may start using a different battery technology in their devices. The source of the allegations comes from a report by Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

In the report shared by the famous analyst, it was mentioned that the iPhone 13s will be the first iPhone series to use the new technology called ‘soft board battery‘. According to Kuo, one of the reasons for switching to the new battery technology is to save space on the iPhone and reduce production costs at the same time.

The iPhone 12, introduced by Cupertino-based technology giant Apple at the beginning of last month, came up with a slimmer design compared to previous iPhones. Apple opt to use a smaller battery with the device because it didn’t have enough space. But thanks to new battery technology, the company can improve the battery life of iPhones by offering a larger capacity battery in extra space.

The batteries using the new technology have fewer layers compared to existing batteries. This means Apple can replace existing batteries with more capacity. This means it can make iPhones thinner while keeping their capacity the same. At this point, if we look at the past, it can be said that Apple will prefer design instead of longer battery life. We have to wait a little longer to see if all these claims are true.
