  • Apple may be Manufacturing its Very Own Microchips for the iPhone and iPad

There are rumors that Apple may be manufacturing its very own microchips for the iPhone and iPad.

Apple just might be making its custom power management chips for both its iPhone and iPad. The high tech firm may be looking forward to substituting a PMIC part supplied by Dialog with its own custom silicon by the time 2019 arrives its its glory.

Apple Inc. has been headhunting talented engineers from a third-party supplier. It in fact already has a number of its employees reserved for this express purpose.

They are busy working on making the microchips a reality. Apple also wants to have custom-made GPUs for its iOS devices within a two years deadline from now, according to Reuters (via 9to5Mac).

Power management chips deal in voltage and charging functions across the stuff within the gadget. Since battery life is a big issue with consumers regarding the iPhone, Apple is focused on improving this fundamental lack on its part.

Custom integrated designs are the watchword for now. Apple seems to be poaching like there is no tomorrow. The company execs want to make the central technology that goes into their products to be the latest state-of-the-art sort of stuff that dreams are made of.

Power and battery maintenance are part of the quest by Apple to reach excellence in matters having to do with cutting edge technology. Apple’s chips for the A6, A7, A8. A9 and A10 series have been designed by the company itself.

The team of engineers saw to it that the 64-bit chips got launched before the competitors got wind of the plans. Its current chips are for the iPhone and iPad. They have left the Android competitors biting the dust.

Meanwhile, Dialog’s share price has plummeted by 20%. This occurred during the nascent commercial activity that took place via the stock market. Another report has it that Dialog’s position is not so dismal as the first piece of news portrays it to be.

Apple is weighing all its options and will not be detaching itself from dependence upon Dialog just yet. Apple has 80 engineers at the top slots within its organizational structure. On the other hand, Dialog has a staff of 1300 people.

These people have crucial intellectual property that Apple would not like to get in the wrong hands. Apple will however stop paying any royalties by the time 2019 rolls in. At present, both Apple and Dialog are keeping mum regarding their future plans.
