And we’ve mentioned that chips from Bosch come into that “undersupply” euphemism.
Apple is now changing the MEMS supplier back to ST from Bosch with a board and software redesign already in progress.
There’s even talk from sources that Apple could sue Bosch for the sales it didn’t make. And the sources say that Bosch probably didn’t understand how to ramp chips from zero to million in the course of a few week.
So, you might ask yourself, why did Apple switch to Bosch from ST. One insider said: “The fault is clearly Apple’s with its manic desire to screw its supply chain by switching chip suppliers routinely to beat the price down and keep them on their toes.”
