Broadcom to sell $15bn worth iPhone parts to Apple
American component supplier will provide parts for Apple products for the next three and a half years
American component supplier 0'>Broadcom will sell $15bn (£11.4bn, €13.5bn) worth of wireless components to 0'>Apple, according to a recent SEC filing.
Broadcom, which is currently the most important tech supplier for Apple in the US, is going to provide the giant with the details for its upcoming iPhones, the filing read.
Broadcom and Apple have signed two separate agreements, with components will delivered for coming Apple products during the three and a half year period beginning in January 2020.
Details of the components were not specified in the papers filed with the SEC. However, recent analysis of the iPhone 11 shows that Broadcom chips are widely used in Apple's gadgets for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, as well as for connecting to wireless networks.
This might mean that the details provided by the American supplier could contribute to the production of the 5G-compatible phones.
Analysts expect Apple to present its 5G lineage in coming five years, depending on the timeline of its deployment across the world.
In December 2019, Broadcom claimed in a filing that Apple’s business comprised 20 per cent of its net revenue in 2019 and 25 per cent in 2018.
