You know, theiPhone is equipped with motion sensors allowing the operation of certain applications and certain games. InvenSense remains the main supplier ofApplebut the days of the San Jose business would be numbered to believe the information from Bloomberg.
The New York press agency ensures that the apple company will soon change supplier with regard to motion sensors. The German brand Bosch would replace InvenSense, and this from the iPhone 8 whose release is scheduled for the month of October.
If this change of supplier materializes, it could be a big blow for InvenSense. In fact, 60% of the Californian company’s revenues come from orders from Apple. Note that this one entirely produced the sensors of the iPhone SE, the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 7.
However, the giant of Cupertino does not intend to interrupt its collaboration with InvenSense. According to some analysts, the possible appointment of Bosch as the main sensor supplier for the iPhone 8 is an Apple strategy to drive prices down. By putting the two groups in competition, the apple brand would thus find itself in a favorable position to negotiate prices.
Last December, the Japanese firm TDK bought InvenSense for $ 1.3 billion. ” We aim to become a key player in the sensor market with InvenSense as a partner “Said the big boss of TDK. The iPhone 8 will not only make people happy!
