Above: Old leaked photo of iPhone Battery (9to5Mac)
The latest rumor from the world of iOS devices claims that Apple will soon be automating its battery production process.
The rumor comes from DigiTimes (via MacLife), so tread with caution. That said, this doesn’t seem far-fetched. Automating the assembly line could make for faster, less expensive production. Also, as MacLife says, this could help cut early leaks down a bit. Many of those internet leaks are individual iPhone components (i.e. batteries) posted and shared all over the web.
