The range of iPhone 12 has just arrived, but rumors about its successor, the iPhone 13, are already circulating. We’ve already heard rumors, even if only one is explicitly connected to the 2021 Apple smartphone.
The first news relates to the iPhone 13 battery capacity. “The iPhone 13 is expected to be the first iPhone model to adopt soft board technology for the battery, thus saving space between internal components and reducing cost, according to 9to5mac the well know and well-respected analyst and Apple leaker Ming-Chi Kuo.
Smaller batteries than are used for the moment in iPhones have the soft board technology. This could help Apple to continue along the iPhone 12 mini path, or to make smartphones more compact. This technology can also enhance its capacity compared with current batteries, the other hypothesis.
In any event, the battery would be even more compact on footprint, if Apple intended to maintain the same capacity between the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 13.
Plainly Apple’s second news, which has just established a new Apple patent. Apparently, for iPhones, this is a “protective charge” mode that stops charging 100% if the smartphone remains connected to the power supply beyond its control.
Usually, if the cellular phones are loaded at 100 percent, it reduces the battery’s ability to hold a charge and with time, its useful life is reduced constantly. The protective charge should delay the complete charge of the phone for the time the user has chosen.
This is quite similar to the Sony Xperia smartphone function, which indicates the time when the user wakes up. This allows you to charge up to 100% of the cost of the smartphone over the day, without any fear of causing damage.
The optimized battery charging function helps users increase their life from iOS 13, but the new patent allows for power supply disruption, even if the device is 100 percent recharged with the charger.
Because this is a patent, it isn’t guaranteed to happen to future mobile devices, but it might be very helpful for people who have had bad experiences with iPhones’ battery life in the past.
We don’t know if this new feature needs new equipment and hence if it is enabled through an iOS update to launch or to launch a new iPhone. This technology could also be benefited in the future by current iPhone users in the latter case.
As far as both leaks are concerned, we have to wait a little bit to check their correctness, but the future of iPhone batteries looks quite bright.
