Apple will make room for larger batteries in iPhones, iPads, and MacBooks by adopting thinner chips

According to DigiTimes reports, for the future iPhone, iPad, and MacBook, Apple plans to use smaller internal components to increase the size of the device’s battery. Apple plans to “significantly increase” the adoption of IPD (Integrated Passive Devices), mainly for peripheral chips in its products.

This means that these chips will be thinner and bring higher performance in the same volume, while also occupying less internal space in the device, allowing larger batteries to be accommodated.


According to industry insiders, Apple expects to significantly increase the adoption of IPD in new iPhones and other iOS products, which provides strong business opportunities for manufacturing partners TSMC and Anke, and the demand for IPD will also increase sharply along with this trend. increase.

The report did not specify when these new small chips will be unveiled, but Apple has requested TSMC’s sixth-generation process to mass-produce IPDs for the new iPhone and iPad.


The battery capacity of the upcoming iPhone 13 lineup leaked earlier this year indicates that it will use a larger battery. But overall, the new iPhone will be thicker to make room for a larger battery.

Although today’s report did not mention the 2021 iPhone, we have reason to believe that the new IPD chip, coupled with the increase in thickness, provides Apple with room to increase battery capacity. It is rumored that the new, larger battery will be well utilized, thanks to the more advanced display in the upcoming high-end iPhone.
