To cut costs for 5G: iPhone 12 won't come with a better battery than the current generation

With the launch of a series approaching iPhone 12Rumors and speculations have surfaced regarding the latest generation of Apple's flagship. The latest report has arrived from well-known tech blogger Ming-Chi Kuo which stated that the company may look to offset support for 5G networks in its new series of phones by offering somewhat cheaper batteries.

The iPhone 12 series will be the first ever flagship phone in the company's history to feature support for 5G networks. However, phones with this futuristic technology are known to be generally more expensive than their 4G LTE counterparts. As expected, the phones will come at a premium price already, so breaking the bank deposit may be the only way to get the latest iPhone 5G.

Kuo's report revealed through supplier data that the cost of producing just one iPhone could rise by between $85 and $135 just to support 5G. Apparently, Apple has been putting pressure on its suppliers to try to reduce the cost of parts supply and will unfortunately have to use a simpler battery design to lower the overall cost of the iPhone 12 series. The iPhone 12 battery specifications are said to feature a reduced number of mAh.

This will enable Apple to cut costs on the battery by 40 to 50 percent compared to the iPhone 11 series. The company will reportedly forgo the hard plate design and opt for the soft plate battery design for the upcoming iPhone series in 2021. Unfortunately, don't take all that information seriously. Grandpa We are certainly waiting for any new and you will be the first to know the latest developments, do not worry.

Other devices that we will witness the launch of in this upcoming event:

It is worth noting that we received information that the expected launch event, which Apple holds every year, will not take place on the usual date, which is September, but will take place in October, and the Pro models in the series will be revealed in November.
