Apple is aggressively testing thermal technology with a vapor chamber for the next generation of iPhone with the idea that it will occupy everything in the near future, according to the report of the famous analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, quoted by AppleInsider.

Kuo believes that Apple is likely to incorporate the  vapor chamber technology into the previous iPhone models, as it is unclear whether the system will be ready in time for release this year.

“The reason the iPhone doesn’t adopt VC is because of test results that don’t meet Apple’s high standards. However, we are optimistic about the graphics to improve VC reliability and expect high-end iPhone models to be equipped with VC in the near future” said Ming-Chi Kuo.

It should be noted that the technology is not new or unique to the market. Steam chamber cooling systems are already used successfully in many Android devices.

Generally speaking, the vapor chamber technology involves the evaporation of a liquid (usually water) within a specialized heat pipe or heat retention structure that passes through the chassis of the device. Heat from processors and other heavy-duty electronic components causes the liquid to evaporate into steam, which distributes heat energy through the evaporation chamber as it travels to lower pressure areas. The condenser elements remove the heat from the vapors, which are converted into a liquid state and returned to high pressure areas by capillary action.

Iti is strongly believed by Kuo that the iPhone 13 will need the vapor chamber to cope with the rapid adoption of 5G and the ever-increasing thermal loads on the processor. It is known that Apple’s iPhone 12 series, the first iPhones that support 5G, get heated when connected to a faster network. The improved thermal system will allow Apple to further increase the performance of calculations and increase the longevity of its components.
