Apple could include its own power management chips on the iPhone or iPad in 2018


Apple could start using in 2018 its own power management chips , directly integrated into the batteries of the iPhone, as we have in Nikkei Asian Review .
Apple takes years in a process of taking control of the most important components of their iOS devices. Instead of letting another company design them for general use, they design them themselves to achieve faster progress, while gaining competitive advantages with the competition, which does not use its own integrated, designed only for their devices. This is exactly what is happening with Apple's CPUs until last year, and with GPUs starting this year. Apple has been designing its own CPUs for several years, and despite being based on the same ARM architecture as the competing smartphones or tablets, they achieve much better performance than them. It's been two or three years now that nobody simply manages to manufacture a smartphone or tablet that reaches the huge levels of performance that Apple is getting. From the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X, Apple is also using its own GPU, a graphics chip that is already faster than the latest Imagination Technologies models that have been used until last year . It's a plan they've been working on for quite some time ... and it's clear that it's working very well for them .

It is for this reason that the news that they are now making their own chips to control the energy consumption in batteries is not surprising at all. It is a logical and expected step, in that process of taking control of the design of the most important components of your devices. Only in this way will they be able to achieve progress specifically prepared for these machines, and follow the guidelines that they consider appropriate, instead of using the same chips used by all other smartphones and tablets on the market. Apple is already starting to think differently about batteries, and the first example of that is that battery divided into two cells that has the iPhone X, with the shape of an ele, which allows better use of available space and increase autonomy.
The same anonymous source of this rumor indicates that Apple could begin to use its own power management integrated batteries in the devices that it presents during the year 2018, although these plans could be delayed until the year 2019. The exclusive manufacturer of these integrated will be the Taiwanese company TSMC, one of the most important partners of Apple since they manufacture several of their CPUs.
