A MacBook with a 24-hour lasting battery sounds like a treat and impossible at the same time. But there’s a chance we might actually get our hands on such a device sometimes in the future. Apple’s job adverts indicate their intention to find new, brilliant engineers with solid experience in LED backlighting.
Last year, we’ve seen several reports of Apple planning to include SHARP’s IGZO display technology in future models of MacBooks and iPads. This type of display is extremely power-efficient and these fresh job adverts caused fervent speculation that Apple is indeed working on next-gen IGZO powered MacBooks and iPads with all-day lasting batteries. While certainly not impossible, don’t become too excited. It’ll probably take a few years for Apple to materialize these efforts.
