While some might mourn news Apple won’t upgrade the 27-in. iMac with Apple Silicon, today’s most interesting speculation says the company is developing its own battery technology — and might introduce its own designs into mobile devices as soon as 2025.
It makes sense.
We know Apple has spent time on battery technology. In 2018, it hired Soonho Ahn, Samsung’s senior vice president, next generation batteries and materials innovation. Ahn stayed on as the Global Head of Battery Developments for three years before taking a new post as CTO of Volkswagen’s battery division.
