Apple reportedly drops Samsung as iPad, MacBook battery supplier

Apple has made a decision to no more purchase batteries from Samsung for their future iPad and MacBook items, TechCrunch is revealing. The company has picked Chinese Amperex Technology Limited and Tianjin Lishen Battery to provide their battery needs in the future.

However, As per CEO Tim Cook on Apple’s current business call, Samsung is going to continue providing different parts  for Apple at least in the near future, no matter how much they may try to separate themselves from rivals.

Apple has long been in a patent fight with Samsung – as well as HTC and Google – but they’re component supply association with Samsung looks to be unfaltering as of yet. Samsung is able to develop high quantities of high-quality parts that Apple can’t find elsewhere, and they also have an agreement binding them together that means we’ll most likely continue to see the companies cooperating for a long time to come.

While today’s report does show that the companies are gradually going apart, it’s going to be a while before you can purchase an Apple product that contains no Samsung parts.
