Apple is actively working on improving the battery performance of its iPhone devices. According to a report from ET News, the company is focused on research and development efforts to enhance battery capacity and charging speed.
Apple is currently conducting experiments with new cathode materials including nickel, cobalt, manganese, and aluminum. Furthermore, Apple has found a way to address the expansion issue caused by silicon during charging, allowing for higher silicon content in the battery design.
The new cathode compound being developed by Apple will increase battery density, resulting in a higher capacity within the same device volume. Additionally, the company plans to incorporate advanced materials like carbon nanotubes (CNTs) to further enhance battery performance.
According to the report, the initial devices featuring this new battery technology, which are expected to be iPhones, could be released as early as 2025. This indicates that Apple’s development process is already in an advanced stage and progressing rapidly.
