LG Apple Partnership to Result in iPhone 9 Battery Production

Just when we were getting over the launch of the iPhone 7 and making speculations about what would surprises iPhone 8 would have in store for us, here comes an update about the manufacture of the iPhone 9 as well. Consequently, Apple is still months away to officially announcing any news about this model of its flagship phone. As this Apple smartphone is one of the most anticipated models, it is almost impossible to keep any development in the project under wraps for long. In some way or the other, news about Apple spreads like wildfire. And this wildfire has ignited the news about an alleged LG Apple partnership.

It seems that Apple Inc. wants to waste no time before beginning the manufacture of the iPhone 9. This is why it has already begun talks with LG Chemical to take the responsibility of making batteries for the flagship model. This step gives us an idea that Apple is willing to outsource production of certain models separately in order to bring together the best of technology possible. The tech giant wants to leave no stone unturned as competition in the smartphone market is on the rise and it has to keep its quality up to the mark to retain its identity as the leader.

How will the LG Apple partnership materialize?

The reason why Apple decided to strike an agreement with LG for the production of iPhone 9 is that apparently, LG recently made a huge investment in its battery technology. This clearly signifies that the company is dedicatedly working on developing its technology at any cost. The company has invested hundreds of millions of its native currency to enable mass production from next year. Therefore, LG will be the sole manufacturer for the iPhone 9 batteries.

With its recent investment, LG will also construct facilities specifically dedicatedly to meet the demand of Apple. This step is somewhere close to that of Samsung for the manufacture of displays for Apple. The LG Apple partnership will result in the production of L-shaped batteries. These batteries will have an extended portion at the bottom. This particular design is in order to maximize the internal space. By doing so, it can accommodate a larger unit inside the outside body of the iPhone. There are reports which suggest that Apple is also working on reducing the size of its motherboard. This will make way for the extended battery without the need to increase the size of the iPhone.
