Apple Beefs Up iPad Component Supply Chain

Whether it’s to juice iPad production in the face of overwhelming demand or simply to shore up weaknesses in its component supply chain, Apple has reportedly tapped Chimei Innolux as a supplier of the in-plane switching (IPS) panels used in the iPad. The company is expected to begin manufacturing components for Apple in May, joining TPK Holding Corp. and Wintek as its third IPS panel supplier.

TPK and Wintek make the touchscreen, not the display. Samsung and LG are the other display suppliers.
