Apple wants to change the way it gets memory chips from different sources.

Apple is reportedly looking for a third memory chip supply chain, according to GSMArena. Samsung is currently Apple’s leading supplier, followed by SK Hynix.

According to sources familiar with the situation, the Cupertino-based firm is eyeing China’s Yangtze Memory Technologies.

The agreement has yet to be formalized, but according to other reports, the manufacturer has already presented samples to Apple and gotten clearance. All of the requirements that have been reported have been met. In May, the first batch of NAND chips will arrive.

Yangtze, on the other hand, is a generation behind Samsung and other memory chip manufacturers in terms of semiconductor design. This indicates that Yangtze’s NAND flash will be used in Apple’s low-end handsets, including as this year’s iPhone SE 2022.
