How an iPhone battery is made

Just found this video on YouTube. Even though this is about an iPhone LiPoly cell there's lots of really interesting information in there about how these batteries are actually manufactured. 
Most of this should apply to the cells we use in our flashlights. 

 

Spoiler: they have buckets of sand and water next to some of the machines .. for rather unsurprising reasons. Smile

Are they the OEM maker for iPhones, or just a battery maker for batteries that fit the iPhones?

Asking for my iPhone XS Max.

In the beginning of the video he said they were an aftermarket battery maker.

Near the very beginning he says they make after market batteries for the iPhone. He visited the bare cell manufacturer and the plant that produces the final battery. Quite interesting video.

When one looks at the whole process, it's easy to think that making reliable, defect free batteries is not a 100% sure thing.  I wonder how many slip through the cracks and get sold.

Nevermind that their attitude is Holier than Thou.
Way Back When, I had a 2nd gen iPhone, maybe a couple months out from my contract being up and able to get a new phone, had problems with it connecting to my Win7 PC for iTunes.
AppleCare tells me to just get a new phone and an iMac.
Soon as my Contract was up, I went Android and never looked back, plus I personally made sure that iPhone became forcibly one with the a cinder block wall Wink

 Pretty sure no one is ever being forced into buying a brand .If the myth is great enough to sell the brand then good for them ."Pricing abusiveness"  just sounds silly. I thought the new I pad was priced very competitively this year ($300??) because they weren't as popular as in past years .

One things for sure if you're an investor ....if you bought apple stock ...you made money !

A 1000 shares in 2001 at around a buck...$1000 would be worth $200,000+ .

 

  I replaced my old I-phone battery with a aftermarket (because you can't buy an OEM ) and it kinda sucks compared to the original. It was supposedly just made in 2019 but it's running at about 75% of what the real one did before it started to puke .

Apple started to brick phones that were repaired.
If you upgrade to the latest IOS and have stuff replaced in your iphone, like battery, screen etc there’s a high chance you will get your phone blocked.
They paired important components with the MB, and they check if they match at the o.s. level.
So even if somehow you get a OEM battery, it still gets bricked with the latest IOS because there can be only 1 valid pair, the one in the original phone.
These are some very fucked up business practices by Apple.
Also they lobby for making repairs illegal, and there’s a good chance that will happen in the near future because governments are nothing else but corporate servants. I heard that in the US it’s already illegal for farmers to repair tractors that they paid for and own.
The same hypocrites are giving us lectures about how we need to stop throwing so much stuff in the trash.

Get NOHON brand batteries, plenty of them for sale in AliExpress, they cover most if not all the smartphone market, and tablets too. Myself replaced many already (iPhones included). Top quality.

Yeah… I got that, which is what prompted my question.

It’s just a video of how some knockoff makes a cell that happens to work with an iPhone and it’s not a video of how the actual iPhone batteries are made.

Could be a world of difference, no?

iPhone batteries are not made by Apple, they just entrust such duty to some good battery OEM able to supply their production facilities and that's about it.

As said above I've replaced iPhone batteries (up to 6S) and to my eye they seem good, but pretty standard.

I realize that, as well, but it doesn’t mean that the OEM uses that same process.

Kat. “””I heard that in the US it’s already illegal for farmers to repair tractors that they paid for and own.”””
