According to the information shared by reliable sources, the battery of the new generation iPhone models may be smaller.
Ming-Chi Kuo, known for its accurate leaks on Apple products, said the battery of the new generation iPhone models will be smaller.
Apple, which announced the iPhone 12 models on October 13, focused on the iPhone 13 models as you know . As new reports began to be published about the features of the new generation iPhone models, Ming-Chi Kuo made an important claim today.
In this section , Kuo stated that the iPhone models that Apple will launch in the near future will come with a different battery technology, and that this battery will also be called soft board battery .
His note explains that these new soft board batteries will be supplied by Jialianyi, which will make the company double its Apple business thanks to said batteries.
“Benefiting from the return to Apple’s full product line soft board supply chain, we predict that Jialianyi’s Apple business revenue will grow by about 100% YoY or above in 2021 […]
“Jialianyi is expected to obtain about 40-50% of orders for battery soft boards for iPhone 13 and 13 mini. We predict that iPhone 13 will be the first iPhone model to adopt battery soft board technology, which will help save internal space and reduce costs.
“The battery soft and hard version suppliers for the iPhone 12 series include Xinxing, Huatong, Yaohua and TTM, and the battery soft board suppliers for the iPhone 13 series are changed to Jialianyi, Xinxing and Huatong.
“We believe that the number of battery panels for the iPhone 13 series is reduced due to the reduced number of suppliers, which will benefit the long-term profits of the suppliers. As a new entrant, Jialianyi is the biggest beneficiary of the iPhone 13 series’ switch to battery soft board design.”
Kuo also drew attention to the report he published, that Apple plans to reduce both production costs and save space in iPhone models with this battery technology.
“The 2021 iPhone display may use 10-20% less power than the iPhone 12, thanks to a more power-efficient technology, according to a new report today. There’s even an outside possibility of some kind of always-on display on next year’s iPhones.”
For now, there is no clear information about this battery technology. However, it is stated in the latest shared reports that the new generation battery technology that Apple is working on will host fewer layers. In this part, it is thought that Apple will keep the battery capacity the same and will meet the users with the iPhone models with a thinner design next year .
In another report shared by Kuo, it is stated that the first model to use this battery technology will be the iPhone 13 series. At the same time, Kuo also touches on the power efficiency of the iPhone 13 in its report. In this direction, the new generation iPhone models are claimed to be 10 to 20 percent more efficient than the iPhone 12.
