According to industry sources, Apple is likely to considerably enhance the deployment of IPD (integrated passive devices) for upcoming iPhones and other iOS products, presenting major economic potential for manufacturing partners TSMC and Amkor.
According to DigiTimes, Apple wants to use smaller internal components in future iPhones, iPads, and MacBooks in order to expand the size of the device’s battery, according to the sources, peripheral processors for iPhones, iPads, and MacBooks are getting slimmer with higher performance to make room for larger-capacity battery solutions for the devices, with demand for IPDs growing significantly in accordance with the trend.
The story doesn’t say when these new smaller chips will be released, but it does say that Apple has given TSMC approval to mass-produce IPDs for new iPhones and iPads using its 6th-generation process.
The iPhone 13 lineup’s alleged battery capacity, which were leaked earlier this year, indicated that the future iPhones would have larger batteries.
Despite the fact that the 2021 iPhones aren’t addressed in today’s study, it’s logical to infer that new IPD chips, combined with increased thickness, would allow Apple to boost battery size due to spare internal space. The new larger batteries are expected to be put to good use in the future high-end iPhones, thanks to more advanced displays.
