Report: Apple using two suppliers for the batteries on next-gen Apple iPhone
Sources say that over 50% of the orders for the new handset were won by Shenzhen Desay Battery Technology. Dynapack is still looking to win some new business from Apple, especially since the Apple iPhone 6 has not yet entered mass production. In the meantime, Dynapack will continue to supply batteries for the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c through 2015.
While winning iPhone business from Apple is always positive for suppliers, these orders usually provide companies with a lower profit margin. Because Apple orders in such large quantities, the tech titan demands a low price for the parts it procures. This year, Apple might be buying more cells than normal as speculation continues to persist that Apple will release a 4.7 inch Apple iPhone 6 along with a larger screened 5.5 inch Apple iPhone.
