Apple working on using iPhone’s faster circuit board tech in future Apple Watch, Mac devices

Well-connected KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo told investors Apple is aiming to bring the liquid crystal polymer circuit boards found in iPhone X and iPhone 8 devices to the Apple Watch and Mac, 9to5Mac reports. Kuo claims Apple is working with manufacturing partner Career to incorporate the LCP flexible circuit boards into the Mac to help with USB 3.2 connections and save space inside the device, while the Apple Watch would benefit from LCP antennas for more stable LTE connectivity and better heat and moisture resistance than the current PI-based antennas.
