According to Digitimes, Macronix International and Winbond Electronics from Taiwan, have both grabbed NOR flash memory orders for the next iPhone, which will be announced in mid-September.
Macronix and Winbond have both responded by saying the companies do not comment on issues concerning individual customers.
For the first batch of the upcoming iPhones, Macronix has secured 70% of the total NOR-chip orders for the upcoming iPhone while Winbond received the remainder.

For Winbond, breaking into the supply chain of Apple could mark a company milestone.
