Apple would like to free more space for larger batteries in the iPhone. To this end, it is planned to carry out a further miniaturization of components – especially in the area of ​​systems that take on secondary tasks (peripheral chips). The electronics trade journal published in Taiwan has a corresponding report DigiTimes released. Good business is expected there, for example for Apple’s chip maker.

To achieve this goal, more so-called IPD (integrated passive devices) should land in the iPhone or iPad. These are passive components that sit on a common substrate or are in a common package. Suppliers could, according to the report Apple’s A-Chip supplier TSMC and Amkor being. The company believes that the demand for IPDs could increase significantly DigiTImes. It is well known that Apple does not do itself a shame when it comes to designing components itself – the group has been around for years with the most important, the A and M SoCs. TSMC could deliver IPDs “on demand”.

However, this should not make the iPhone smaller or thinner. As mentioned, the goal is to create more space for batteries with a larger capacity. It is already known from the “iPhone 13” that Apple wants to install larger batteries than ever before. One of the reasons is that the devices – at least the Pro versions – are to have 120 Hertz displays for the first time. Another reason could be the expansion of the ultra-fast 5G mmWave technology to other countries – this also consumes a lot of electricity.

According to rumors, the “iPhone 13 Pro Max” will be equipped with a 665 mAh larger battery – from 3687 mAh in the iPhone 12 Pro Max to 4352 mAh. “IPhone 13” and “13 Pro”, which use batteries of the same size, are said to have increased their capacity from 2815 to 3095 mAh. According to the report, the “iPhone 13 mini” would go up from 2227 mAh to 2406 mAh. It is unclear whether Apple is already increasingly relying on more IPDs in its devices.
