Pegatron it seems, is working hard to increase its production share of Apple devices, but the luck doesn't stop with just the iPad 3 contract. Pegatron have also won an order from Apple to manufacture a total of 15 million iPhone 5 handsets. Apple may be changing things around with manufacturers for their devices, but component suppliers are staying the same. TPK Holdings will still supply touch panels, Simplo Technology and Dynapack International Technology supply batteries, Largan Precision will supply camera lenses and finally Foxconn Technology will throw in some outer casings.
