Rumours: iPhone 12 Battery Parts Could Be Cheaper To Save On Costs
Apple will be using a cheaper and simpler battery technology design in the upcoming iPhone 12 series of phones. This will be done as a cost cutting measure for next-generation hardware, says research analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
Highlights of the Story
- Inclusion of 5G has increased production costs
- This will be a cost-cutting measure to focus on other things more
- The simpler battery technology design to save 40-50%
The Apple iPhone 12 Launch is nearing by the day and people are really looking forward to the 5G models. However, with the inclusion of 5G, Apple is now opting for a cheaper battery technology. According to Ming-Chi Kuo, the sub-6Hz 5G technology that is to be included in the iPhone 12 series would add about $75-$85 to the cost of the unit. Additionally, another $125-$135 will be added by the millimeter wave technology. This would increase the production costs of these devices considerably.
The newer and simpler battery board will be almost 40-50% lower than the one used in the iPhone 11 series. Furthermore, Kuo believes that the company will work on this design and reduce the cost of the battery by another 30-40% next year. However, Apple has not officially confirmed any of these changes as of now.
If all of these changes are carried out in the best possible way without hindering the overall performance of the device, it is definitely the way to go. However, this Apple we are talking about. They have the ability to mess around with such crucial components through various experiments and tests.
Last year, the iPhone 11 made quite a stir but failed to impress the Asian markets. This is simply because of the Asian markets flooding with feature packed phones at budget prices. However, with the inclusion of 5G, Apple may see a considerable rise in its users in Asia.
