Apple Adds New Supplier to Help With iPhone 6 Battery Yield Issues

Posted July 15, 2014 at 5:49pm by iClarified
Apple has added a new supplier to help with iPhone 6 battery yield issues, reports UDN via GforGames.

The iPhone 6 is said to require a very thin battery and Apple's main supplier has apparently had issues producing the slim battery.

The good news is that, according to the Taiwanese media, Apple has now signed up with a new supplier which has already solved the battery design bottleneck. The supplier in question goes by the name of Simplo and it is currently one of the two battery suppliers for Apple’s iPhone 6 – the second one being Desai. However, while the latter supplier still hasn’t solved the issues concerning the battery, Simplo has supposedly already provided a flexible thin unit that meets Apple’s demands.

A previous report said it was Sunwoda who had been tapped by Apple for the battery. GforGames suggests it's possible that both companies have been certified as suppliers.

Getting the battery right for the iPhone 6 is key as 97% of respondents in a recent survey said that longer battery life is a feature that would make them purchase the iPhone 6. It topped the list of desired features coming ahead of a larger display.

Just waiting to see how many of these obviously not rigorously tested batteries will explode like fireworks on people's pockets
