    Interesting if true. May lead to fast charge from apple

    The L-shaped battery should yield faster charging speeds, the report added.

    Changing the battery shape so that it extends to one side at its bottom, forming an “L” shape, is said to permit Apple’s engineers to maximizes internal space and squeeze a Plus-sized battery into a smaller form factor device.

    LG rumored to be exclusive supplier of L-shaped batteries for 2018 iPhones

    Interesting rumour. Why wouldn't they go with a "+" shaped battery, which would give higher capacity still?

    Of course. You just join two "L" batteries at right angles to make a "+".

    BTW, did you know that LG Chem chose the L-shape in honour of their name?

    Apparently it'll be in the upcoming iPhone 8. There was a news article on how they x-rayed the iPhone.
