Some seriously tough rivalry has dogged Apple’s steps in the past few months. Hon Hai, the chief manufacturer of iPhones and iPads is ready to make the necessary changes. According to The China Post, the company won’t be giving up so soon. It is still in on the deal. The supply sources for both Apple and Hon Hai spoke of how the iPad 5 and the iPad mini 2 will be on store shelves between August and September of this year. This of course is as per plan. There have been some wild rumors concerning procrastination in the launch of the iPad mini 2.
Meanwhile, the iPad 5 will arrive on the scene at the right time. The fact that Pegatron has come in between the two doesn’t necessarily mean troubled days ahead for Hon Hai. Both Apple and Hon Hai have a mutually binding agreement. There understanding extends beyond the banal. Pegatron is basically concentrating on the budget iPhone and seeking to closely cooperate with Apple on the iPad series. As far as Apple’s iPad is concerned, Hon Hai’s shipments of the new device will see a 50%-60% increase which speaks volumes about the level of trust between the two companies. Two other projects which Apple plans to launch by the end of 2013 are a wearable device and an iTV. This will be even more beneficial to Hon Hai.
Apple is a name that is in common parlance throughout the world. And the fact that Hon Hai is in cahoots with it only increases the Taiwanese company’s prestige and morale. The two are conjointly creating leading edge technology that fulfills the new needs of a millennial generation. Apple owes much to its original founders who worked day and night to get the product off the ground. After covering the rocky road to success in the 80s and 90s, Apple finally began its journey towards extremely slim and smart devices. These included the iPhone, iPad and iPod. All three carried the imprints of the late genius Steve Jobs. This man single-handedly sacrificed his sleep and leisure time for the sake of making a difference in the world. A dent in the universe is how he portrayed this job of creating something beautiful out of ordinary components. Steve was a man who saw Apple through. He left behind a legacy and today companies like Hon Hai see Apple as an asset that they cannot afford to lose.
