We are still months away from Apple most expected 10th Year Anniversary iPhone from its unveiling and Apple it’s already preparing for the future of iPhone. As a recent rumor surface about iPhone 9 telling us about new iPhone battery which will going to introduce in 2018 iPhone. Apple has already patent L shaped battery earlier this month and it is expected to release in iPhone but unfortunately, it won’t happen this year. The new battery design will be shaped “bent” or “L-Shaped” rather than rectangular present in recent iPhone. This leak is cited by a source from Korea Economic Daily.

The new shaped battery will obviously be bigger and takes less space in the housing, while the new battery will be thinner than current gen iPhone battery. Rumors also claim that “L-Shaped” battery will help save internal space for components within a device, and it could also grant a boost to charging speeds. While Apple renowned analyst Ming Chi Kuo already suggests this type of leaks way back in April of this year as this battery will be present in iPhone 8.

LG is already being pegged as the sole supplier of such a battery, which would be an unusual move for Apple, who historically has strived for a “multi-vendor strategy” in its supply chain sourcing. LG has already spent “hundreds of billions” in battery production infrastructure and will be ready in time for mass production by early next year.
