New iPhones will be able to stop the bloating of batteries
Apple is working on a system for early detection of swelling in lithium-ion and lithium-polymer batteries, which can not only inform the user about the process that has begun but also slow down or even stop it – if possible. Batteries of these types are dangerous, but there is no alternative to them, and, most likely, there will not be one in the near future. The smart electronics of mobile devices (from smartwatches to giant Boeings) make these batteries nearly safe. Compared to their circulation, the number of serious incidents occurring through their fault is quite small, but it is not easier for the victims.
