Zhang says that Apple will achieve this aim by giving Power Integrations the exclusive contract to supply fast-charging chipsets for the new phones. He adds that once Power Integrations fixes an unnamed quality issue, it will then take over from ON Semiconductor and NXP Semiconductor as “the main provider for the charging solution for all new iPhones and iPads.”
Zhang also stated that Texas Instruments will replace Broadcom as Apple’s supplier of wireless charging technology for the new LCD iPhone in a bid to keep costs down.
One final interesting news nugget from Zhang about the 2018 iPhone line-up is that Hon Hai Precision is expected to begin production a month earlier than expected.
