Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, has acknowledged that Sony, a Japanese company, supplies the camera sensors for Apple’s iPhones.
In a tweet posted on Tuesday, Cook claimed that Apple had been using Sony sensors for its iPhone cameras for more than ten years.
Apple has historically kept quiet about the precise hardware components used in each iPhone, only disclosing the specifications of each camera, such as resolution and aperture, rather than the components themselves.
Sony CEO Howard Stringer “accidentally” disclosed that his company would be providing sensors to Apple for the iPhone 5 in 2011.
15 of Sony’s factories in Japan were destroyed at the time of the earthquake, according to Stringer, who also revealed to the Wall Street Journal that an Apple camera sensor was being produced in one of the sites.
