“Apple is cooking up such an iPhone upgrade path, with a wave of rumors warning the next iteration will be faster, thinner, and possibly even curvier than before,” Jonny Evans writes for Computerworld.
“If you own an Apple Watch or have spent any time looking at the teardowns on this product then you’ll already know that the technology inside the device is squeezed inside a System in Package design,” Evans writes. “It seems Apple may adopt a similar approach to a future iPhone, according to the China Times. Even if Apple’s engineers then choose to maintain the same chassis design they will have more available space in which to squeeze new batteries or new network equipment in order to introduce support for other communication standards – essential if Apple ever decides to offer its own satellite iPhone services. Or it could just make even thinner iPhones.”
MacDailyNews Take: We’d rather have more battery, please. No need for a combination iPhone/trowel, thanks.
Evans writes, “That’s not the only Apple Watch tech you can expect to find in the next iPhone – Force Touch and use of metal alloys developed for the wearable device are also expected to feature, as previously reported here. And don’t neglect those camera improvements.”
