Analyst Ming Chi-Kuo – who is the most famous for leaks, predicted a company Apple – Apple’s revenue will rise 100 percent year-on-year in 2021 due to the change in iPhone 13 battery components.
He mentioned (koo) in His report The latest is that Taiwan Career Technology will return to the picture as a major supplier of the entire Apple product range in 2021, and this includes phones (iPhone 13) in the second half of 2021, and headphones (Airpods) in the first half of next year. This is in addition to a new computer (iPad) with a mini LED screen that will be launched in the same timeframe.
The current (iPhone 12) batteries use a mixture of soft and hard plates, and it is said that the (iPhone 13) will completely switch to soft plate technology. Soft plate batteries contain fewer layers compared to hard plate batteries. This new type of battery will help save internal space in iPhones, thus reducing production costs.
This year’s iPhones contain slightly smaller batteries than last year’s iPhone 11. And given the additional power consumption from the 5G modem across the four phones, and the large screen of the iPhone 12 Pro, the new iPhones don’t perform well in terms of endurance. So, Apple is looking for ways to extend battery life while making iPhones thinner.
Next year, Taiwan Career Technology is expected to receive between 40 percent and 50 percent of battery orders for the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini. Unimicron and Unitech, two other suppliers, are expected to supply batteries for the upcoming iPhones.
According to the report, the new AirPods 3 are expected to come with the same design as the current AirPods Pro, and Taiwan Career Technology is expected to meet the demands of the soft pads in the AirPods themselves. And also in shipping cases.
The same supplier will also provide soft panels for the audio and visual components of the iPads. Both the new iPads and AirPods 3 are expected to be launched sometime during the first half of next year.
