What makes Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) new iPad tick? Repair firm iFixit was crazy enough to crack open one of the brand new iPads, which went on sale in Australia early on Friday — that’s Thursday afternoon in most of the U.S. — to find out. The dissection revealed the iPad uses chips made by Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM), Broadcom (NASDAQ:BRCM), Samsung Electronics and other semiconductor makers, and various parts made by other major tech companies. Here are all the juicy details:
Apple does not disclose which company makes the components that go into its devices, and suppliers keep quiet to keep Apple happy, but anyone can find out what’s inside if they break down Apple’s devices piece by piece.
Now that we know what’s inside, congratulations is due to these chipmakers and manufacturers for making the cut and getting signed to what must have been some of their most lucrative deals of the last year.
