According to the Korean website The Elec, the 2020 iPhone (tentatively named iPhone 11 series) may have a customized battery protection module. It is smaller than the battery protection circuit of the previous iPhone, thinner by nearly 50%.
Small modules can free up the internal space of the iPhone 11 models. That may pave the way for a small increase in battery capacity. The report states that South Korea’s ITM Semiconductor will provide smaller modules. Battery protection circuitry helps prevent overcharging and over-discharging. ITM Semiconductor’s new module combines protection circuits with MOSFETs and PCBs. Elec claimed in another report that ITM Semiconductor has provided the new module for the Samsung Galaxy S11.
Apple is expected to release four high-end iPhones in 2020. In particular, Apple will release a 5.4-inch model, two 6.1-inch models, and a 6.7-inch model. All four devices are expected to have OLED displays and 5G support. Also, are expected to have new metal frames, up to 6GB of RAM, 3D-sensing rear cameras, and more.
The iPhone 11 Pro Max’s battery life is the longest in the history of the iPhone. That is five hours longer than the iPhone XS Max. All iPhone 11 series come without a 3D Touch screen layer. They are slightly bulkier than the iPhone XS and XR models. These factors allowed Apple to slightly increase the size of the three batteries. In addition, these factors allowed giving the iPhone 11 Pro Max a whopping five hours of extra battery juice compared to the XS Max. The biggest iPhone 11 phone has the best battery life this year, which was not the case last year when the iPhone XR’s battery was better.
