In compliance with the European Union's upcoming battery regulations, Apple is working on a new technology that will revolutionize the process of battery replacement for the iPhone 16. According to foreign media reports, the technology, known as 'electrically induced adhesive debonding,' will make the battery replacement process more straightforward and accessible to users.

The new method will enable users to detach the battery from the iPhone by simply using tweezers to remove the adhesive strip that holds it in place. Subsequently, a specialized machine and tray will be used to press the battery into the correct position. Unlike the current practice of wrapping the battery in foil, the new technology will encase the battery in metal, allowing for easy disassembly with a slight vibration.

The EU, promoting a circular economy, passed new legislation regarding batteries last year, stipulating that by 2027, all electronic devices must be designed to allow users to replace the battery themselves. This regulation is aimed at reducing electronic waste and promoting sustainability in the consumer electronics industry.

Apple's adoption of this technology not only meets the regulatory requirements but also enhances the user experience by making battery maintenance and replacement more convenient. The introduction of this feature in the iPhone 16 is expected to be well-received by consumers and environmental advocates alike.
