The authors of the Taiwanese publication DigiTimes, citing industry sources, report on Apple’s plans to reduce internal components in some of its devices. In particular, the size of a number of microcircuits should be reduced. According to sources, this will positively affect the performance of the iPad, iPhone and MacBook, as well as free up some space for installing larger batteries.
At the moment, it is not known exactly when the introduction of new chips can begin. However, sources note that Apple has already held talks with TSMC so that the latter can begin production of new types of chips.
The new DigiTimes report does not directly mention updated iPhones. However, Apple may well increase the battery capacity in its new smartphones. This will come in handy amid rumors about the possible appearance of 120Hz displays in the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.
It is worth noting that in the past, network sources have already reported on Apple’s desire to equip its new smartphones with more capacious batteries. At the beginning of summer, one of the insiders named the exact capacity of the batteries that will be installed in all devices from the iPhone 13 line. Such rumors are also confirmed by drawings of new products that leaked to the network at the beginning of the year. According to reports, the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro will be slightly thicker than their predecessors.
