The fact that the current iPhone has such a brutal autonomy management compared to other smartphones is not by chance, it is because has a chip that is only responsible for managing autonomy . This could soon change, since according to analyst Bankhaus Lampe, Apple will create its own chip in 2019.
What do you base this on? On the fact that Apple is hiring engineers from other companies who design power management chips. This is similar to what’s happening with graphics chips, which as we saw yesterday, Apple is looking for engineers to develop GPUs .
From the A6 CPU chip to the current A10 Fusion, Apple has made its own CPUs for the iPhone and iPad. The Co-Processor is also Apple’s own, in the same way that they have developed the S1 processor and others for the Apple Watch such as the W1 for the AirPods. Now developing their own GPUs the goal is clear, to get all the internal chips of their devices to optimize them to the maximum .
If Apple starts making its own power management chips, could increase battery performance significantly on future iPhones. Currently a power management chip is responsible for organizing what power and voltage goes into each component of the phone, but Apple could get more functionality out of the system if it were its own, since it would be perfectly optimized for iOS devices.
