Apple plans to decrease the size of the internal components to focus on fitting a battery of larger capacity in some of their major products like iPad, iPhone, Macbooks as revealed by a report by DigiTimes.
The Cupertino giant is planning to fit in the larger battery by increasing the adoption of IPDs or Integrated passive devices for the peripheral chips used in their devices.
The IPDs are thinner than semiconductors and offer better performance which allows Apple to increase the system speed as well as more space for battery.
The report, based on inputs from industry sources, claims that Apple has already roped in TSMC and Amkor as the manufacturing partners for manufacturing the IPDs for their newer devices.
The report also claims that Apple approves TSMC’s 6th-generation process for the mass production of IPDs for its newer devices.
Meanwhile, as per a report by MacRumors, for iPhone 13 Apple must have opted for fast charging, that is, with the launch of Apple iPhone 13, Apple will also launch their 25W charger which will be sold separately.
The Apple iPhone 13 is also expected to sport a larger battery with support for a 25W charger is a great deal for iPhone users unless you have to spend an extra 60-70 USD for a charger.
The reason for the bigger battery is speculated to be the inclusion of the Always-On-Display feature in its upcoming iPhones.
