The company would have trouble making batteries this thin
Apple’s iPhone 6 is postulated as the thinnest device ever seen in the company and this leads to some problems when integrating all components in a smaller space. This is not the first time we hear about the possible problems the American company would be having when manufacturing ultra thin batteries for the next generation, especially the 5.5-inch model.
Some time ago, it was commented that the Apple company had already managed to solve these problems and could have changed the battery supplier for iPhone 6 according to a report recently published in Asia.
Apple’s current battery manufacturer is Dynapack , who seems to have failed to achieve the goals desired by Cupertino’s boys in making the new batteries for iPhone 6.
Who is Apple’s newest battery provider for iPhone 6?
According to these reports, the American company would now be working with Simplo Technologies , a Taiwan-based company that would have been able to design a battery thin enough to be integrated into the future iPhone 6, something that Samsung and LG’s suppliers would not have been able to achieve.
Another problem Apple faced was production, and that is that Dynapack could not expand its production to meet the demand of 20 million units that the company would be asking for the launch of the 5.5-inch model.
In addition, it should be noted that according to other rumours there would be other suppliers such as Sunwoda that would also have managed to manufacture these very thin batteries . But at the moment Apple has Simplo Technologies and Desay as its suppliers, so it is not very clear that it will sign a third contract with another supplier.
5.5-inch iPhone 6 may be slower than expected
It is also not new that Apple’s future phablet may suffer a delay in its launch . In principle we all hope to see the two new iPhone models this fall before the end of the year but recent reports say that the larger model could suffer a serious delay.
Apple may be having more problems than expected in the manufacture of some components of the 5.5-inch iPhone 6, including the battery, which is said to be only 2 millimeters thick .
On the other hand, there would also be problems with the sapphire glass touch panel and the colouring of the metal casing, which would delay its launch until 2015.
Referring to what was published in AppleInsider, we will have to wait for its launch to see how these ultra-thin batteries finally look and what their performance is like.
