The iPhone Manufacturing Story: An Infographic

In this infographic we trace the iPhone supply and manufacturing chain. We’re providing snippets of information on just who is making the parts that go into the two new iPhones, and where, exactly, these parts are made. Did you know, that the much-touted fingerprint sensor was imagined in Florida, but manufactured in Asia by Taiwanese giant TMSC? How about the M7 motion co-processor? Did you know that it’s the brainchild of NXP, a company in the Netherlands, which has fabrication facilities in Taiwan, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines? 9 million units of iPhone 5’s were sold since the new iPhone 5’s launch. Now why do you think it’s produced outside of USA? Because of savings in money? Not necessarily.
