Apple has delivered another blow to Samsung, Apple has dropped Samsung as a chip and battery supplier. The word is Apple is looking to distance themselves from the technology giant. I’m sure Samsung will find a way to retaliate.
According to a report in Chinese Business News, Apple is now looking to Amperex Technology Limited and Tianjin Lishen Battery, further cutting Samsung out of the lucrative iOS-based and Mac supply chain. Apple has already turned to alternative suppliers to provide displays and flash memory for devices.
As buyers — consumers and enterprise alike — make the shift from fixed desktop systems to mobile devices such as notebooks, smartphones, and tablets, this has meant a boom time for battery manufacturers.
