Is Apple Researching on Mobile Devices Run by Solar Power?
Apple is hiring solar engineers

A job posting, discovered on the Jobs at Apple websites, describes that the tech giant is going to hire engineers having experience with the thin film deposition technology, in either solar or semiconductor processing industries.

Apple Balla states that the key qualification section of the job posting indicates that Apple wants the selected candidate to work on the application side of R&D, rather than its development stage. The company also seems to prefer the candidates with experience related to vacuum evaporation, sputtering, electroplating and other technologies that are commonly associated with disposing thin-films or circuitry.

Seeing the word “Solar” stated twice in the job posting, many people may conclude that Apple is trying to build a solar powered iPhone. But, this fact might not be true as many reputed technological companies have a long history of hiring multidisciplinary engineers as there is an intricate functional relationship between all the different systems.

Nonetheless, a particular line found in the job posting, described as: “Knowledge of thin-films in the context of RF shielding is highly desirable”, gives us a strong indication of Apple’s interest and effort of creating a new method associated with radio interference blocking for its smartphones.

It is known that Apple is putting a lot of effort to build different systems which are able to extend the life of batteries of different devices. Though the third party companies have already occupied a massive market for solar charging products, it would be a great innovation for mobile products if Apple develops a life extending solar panel for its future iPhone or iWatch.
