Flexible PCB firms Flexium Interconnect and Zhen Ding Technology are gearing up for mass production for Apple Inc.'s next-generation iPad devices, while Compeq Manufacturing and Unitech PCB supply rigid-flex boards for the forthcoming AirPods, according to a Digitimes report.
Apple is expected to introduce its new-generation iPad and AirPods series at an event late this month. Both Zhen Ding and Flexium may see their shipments for Apple's upcoming iPad models offset a slowdown in shipments for the iPhones in the first half of 2019, Digitimes reports. Meanwhile, the availability of Apple's long-awaited AirPods 2 is seen as a boost to revenues at both Compeq and Unitech during the six-month period.
