Apple’s 2018 iPhone lineup to have 40% better battery life

Apple will reveal the new iPhones on September 12 at the launch event in Cupertino. Many fans are excited about the new specs, like the bigger OLED screens and improved RAM. However, this new piece of information makes the wait even more exciting. According to sources, the new versions of the iPhone could have much better and improved battery life than the recent variants.

Tech analysts feel that the new A12 CPU chip, which will be installed in the new iPhones, would increase the battery efficiency by 40%. The chip would be substantially smaller than the current A11 chip, with the latter version being 7 nanometers and the older being 10 nanometers.

The battery life has been an area of concern for the iPhones. In comparison to Android phones, iPhones have lacked in the battery niche. However, this issue would now get tackled through the new chip. This advanced chip would increase the speed and performance of the new devices as well as optimize power consumption. According to Macworld, ” Where the A11 had an impressive 4.3 billion transistors, we estimate the A12’s transistor count will fall somewhere between 5.5 and 6 billion”. This will make the battery last longer than 24 hours.

The battery upgrade would be quintessential for the 5G network to work properly. As telecom giants look to roll out the new internet speed service, phones would have to adjust to their heavy requirements. A heavier flow of data at a high speed would require better performance, which Apple intends to deal with through the A12 chip.

The 5G network is expected to go live in early 2019. Apple, as per the recent developments, looks like it’s in pole position to successfully run 5G in its devices. The new iPhones will have an expected 3400 maH battery, which would be a bit of an upgrade from iPhone X.
