5G iPhone 12 could make compromises to prevent big price hike iPhone 11 Pro Max

The iPhone 12 is expected to be the first iPhone with 5G on board, which will mean increased component costs – and a new analyst report suggests that Apple is going to try and offset this with a cheaper, smaller battery setup.

Well-respected Apple watcher Ming-Chi Kuo says (via MacRumors) that the battery board inside the iPhone 12 range will cost about half as much as the equivalent components carried by the iPhone 11 series.
