Apple hired its first employee from Israel in 2011, and now the company has over 700 people working in Israel for it. Even Apple’s CEO Tim Cook was in Israel on Thursday to visit the Cupertino company’s new R&D offices in Tel Aviv. The reason behind Apple’s focus on Israel?
Samsung has entered into an agreement with Apple that will see it supplying at least half of the LPDDR4 chips that the Cupertino company will be using inside the “iPhone 6s,” according to a report from The Korea Times. If other suppliers are unable to fulfill Apple’s requirements, the company may ask Samsung to supply them with more chips.
