Apple working on in-house power management chipsets for future iPhones.

Apple is reportedly working on three iPhones for the upcoming year -- one of which will succeed the special iPhone X, which may be called the iPhone X Plus. Alongside the new iPhones, now a new report coming from anonymous sources claim that the Cupertino major is planning to design its in-house power management chips which the company major may use it in iPhones within the next two years. Well, as of now, there are no words the new chips will be used in 2018's iPhones or not, most probably it will not.

This in-house chips will supposedly be "the most advanced in the industry," paving way for future iPhone models to have a better performance and battery life balance. This report is confirmed by anonymous sources to Nikkei Asian Review.

The sources claim that Apple is designing its own power management chips for use in iPhones within the next two years. Highlighting on the plan, one of the source apparently said, "Based on Apple's current plan, they are set to replace around half of its power management chips to go into iPhones by itself, starting next year." While another source claims that the new chips may not be ready until 2019. This means that the 2018 iPhones may not see this chip in it.

Going by the report, the chips may come with processing capabilities that will "allow it to better monitor and control power consumption among various components." This means that the next-gen iPhones may deliver much better performance on lower power consumption.

With the decision to make its own in-house chip, Apple is basically planning to stop relying on its current supplier Dialog Semiconductor, the British company that exclusively designs the current main power management chips for iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch models. This is confirmed the same anonymous sources. It is said that Apple's in-house power management chips will be exclusively manufactured by Taiwanese supplier -- TSMC.

This is probably not the first time that reports about Apple planning to cut back on Dialog Semiconductor's supply of power management chips for future iPhones. Bankhaus Lampe analyst Karsten Iltgen also predicted the same sometime ago. Iltgen had also exclaimed that Apple engineers have already started working on the chipsets in California and Germany. However, responding to the report Dialog later said that "business relationships are in line with the normal course of business."

Alongside the power management chips and graphics cores, Apple is also reportedly working on its in-house ARM-based Mac processors and iPhone modems as well.

iPhone X

iPhone X ("X" pronounced "ten" /tɛn/)[9] is a smartphone designed, developed, and marketed by Apple Inc. It was announced on September 12, 2017, alongside the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus at the Steve Jobs Theater in the Apple Park campus. The phone was released on November 3, 2017. This iPhone marks the device's tenth anniversary, with "X" being the symbol for "ten" in Roman numerals.

The technology behind the iPhone X was in development for five years, as far back as 2012.[10] Rumors of a drastic iPhone redesign began circulating around the time of iPhone 7's announcement in the third quarter of 2016,[11][12] and intensified when a HomePodfirmware leak in July 2017 suggested that Apple would shortly release a phone with a nearly bezel-less design, lack of physical home button, Face ID, and other new features.[13] A near-final development version of the iOS 11 operating system was also leaked in September 2017, confirming the new design and features.[14]

On August 31, 2017, Apple invited journalists to a September 12 press event,[15][16] the first public event held at the Steve Jobs Theater on the company's new Apple Park campus in Cupertino, California.[17][18][19] The iPhone X was unveiled during that keynote. Its US$999 starting price is the most expensive iPhone launch price.[20] The price is even higher in international markets due to currency fluctuations, import fees and sales taxes.[21]

An unlocked version of the phone was made available for purchase in the United States on December 5, 2017.
