Student does what Apple can't, extends iPhone battery life
The iPhone. Truly deserving of the title the Jesus phone. Perfection in all ways. Except one: it's not a very good phone. Specifcally, you need to charge it daily. On the road, away from home? Best buy yourself a second charger if you want to go wild and make calls on it.
No doubt Apple will get around to addressing the issue around the same time the Four Horsemen make an appearance. Until then, the world will just have to rely on PhD students with too much time on their hands.
Atif Shamin, studying at Carleton University in Canada, has had at the innards of his iPhone and done away with all those old fashioned wires, the primary cause of power loss. Replacing them is a micro-transmitter that wirelessly connects the circuit board and the antennae, increasing power efficiency by a factor of 12.
That's battery life sorted for the next iPhone update. Next on the list - making a telephone call that ends when you decide, not the phone.
