New details have emerged regarding the production of the next iPhone and iPad devices with Apple's Hong Kong supplier of microphones and mini-speakers, AAC Technologies Holdings Inc, announcing that it has won orders to make components for the new versions of the company's biggest money-makers, Bloomberg reports.
"We are one of the suppliers," said Richard Mok, chief financial officer of AAC, as his company is in direct competition with other Apple suppliers, including Dover Corp. Both companies have announced surges in their profits and also in stock prices based on the increased demand for iPads and iPhones in recent months.
According to Mok, Apple chose their products because they satisfy their quality and reliability requirements. We should hope so, considering that Apple is their biggest customer, with more than a quarter of the first six month's revenue coming from their contract with the American company.
Apple has not yet confirmed or denied that AAC will be their supplier for the next generation gadgets.
Although Apple has not yet announced any dates when the new products will be released, it is thought that the new iPhone will have the stronger A5 chip to improve data processing and will also sport a more advanced 8MP camera, according to various reports from sources familiar with the company's plans.
