The iPhone’s battery life is excellent, but it’s not the best there is. Apple does a great job maximizing battery life while keeping iPhones physically thinner than other smartphones in the same price range. That said, when it comes to batteries, bigger is usually better.

Fortunately, Apple knows this, and rumor has it that it’s currently working on making more room for a bigger battery in future iPhones and other Apple devices too.

A recent report from DigiTimes shows that Apple’s making plans to make the internal components on the iPhone, iPad, and MacBook smaller in order to increase the size of the batteries they use.

Apple plans on reducing the size of its parts by increasing the adoption of integrated passive devices, also known as IPD.

These chips and components will bring higher performance while also being smaller and slimmer. Meaning, all Apple devices will have more space inside.

Apple’s been continuously working to make its devices’ components as small as possible – but, unfortunately, the report doesn’t specify when Apple will start using these chips.

Recently, Apple released the 2021 iMac, which features the thinnest design on a Mac desktop while also being one of the most powerful. And even though it’s highly likely that the iPhone 13 doesn’t feature any of these new IPDs, this year’s iPhone has a thicker body that leaves room for a larger battery
