Recently, informant and analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reported that the iPhone 13 line will have changes to the chassis that will allow room for larger batteries. The document, obtained from the Mac Rumors website, describes how Apple should approach the solution and raises questions about the autonomy of the use of the new cell phones.
According to Kuo, the SIM card slot on the iPhone 13 would be built directly into the motherboard, leaving the hitherto used format of the “ejectable tray”. In addition, the thickness of the TrueDepth camera system at the front would also be reduced, indicating that rumors of a possible small “notch” may be correct.
Presumably these small changes would be enough to rearrange certain components in the iPhone 13 and make room for larger battery packs. However, this does not necessarily mean greater user autonomy. That’s because Apple can use the extra mAh capacity to implement new features with higher energy requirements.
In this sense, a 120 Hz update screen is one of the main new features expected for all variants of the iPhone 13 line. Obviously, this feature requires more battery capacity, but this negative point can be mitigated with software optimizations and processor. Another possible “battery drain” is 5G connectivity, which has become a major issue with the popularity of the new network.
On the other hand, it is worth noting that the entire line of iPhone 12 has less battery capacity than its predecessor, but with the same autonomy. The performance is precisely due to the efficiency improvements of the processor present in the models, the A14 Bionic. So it is possible to assume that the A15 will do even better, ensuring more usage time outside of the electrical outlets.
