“Apple and its major suppliers are working diligently in order to prepare the next-gen iPhone for prime time,” Mihai Matei reports for G 4 Games.
“Quite obviously, one of the most important hardware components of a smartphone is its battery, and sadly, earlier reports have indicated that Apple’s suppliers are struggling with overcoming certain manufacturing difficulties hindering the production of the iPhone 6′s batteries,” Matei reports. “The good news is that the iPhone 6 battery design bottleneck has been allegedly solved, as the Cupertino giant teamed up with a new supplier.”
“Reportedly, one of the main issues with iPhone 6′s battery is the fact that Apple intends on creating a light and extremely thin device. With not enough room to go by, battery suppliers have had a difficult time figuring out how they can provide a good enough battery for the next gen iPhone. Supposedly, one of Apple’s main suppliers – Dynapack (iPhone 5 battery supplier) – failed to deliver and has fallen off the radar,” Matei reports. “According to the Taiwanese media, Apple has now signed up with a new supplier which has already solved the battery design bottleneck. The supplier in question goes by the name of Simplo.”
