A new type of battery should prevent spontaneous disconnection of the devices. This development can be used not only on the iPhone, but on other iPad devices from the iPad to the MacBook.
The main difficulty in creating a "resilient" battery is its size. By reducing the overall dimensions of the battery, it is worse opposed to external factors. However, Cupertino engineers have found a possible solution to this problem.
