Firm to supply more modules for iPhone 13

LG InnoTek will take over some of the supply volume from Sharp for camera modules provided to Apple, TheElec has learned.

This is from the Japanese company’s factory in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam being shut down recently due to the outbreak of COVID-19 there.

The factory has been ordered to shut down until September 15.

Meanwhile, LG InnoTek’s factory at Haiphong, Vietnam has not been affected.

The South Korean company also has a camera module factory at Gumi, South Korea that can handle production volume that was supposed to go to Sharp.

People familiar with the matter said LG InnoTek could be supplying up to 70% of the camera modules used by Apple for its iPhone 13 this year.

Last year, Chinese firm O’Film was removed from Apple’s camera module supply chain over human rights violations of the Uighur people.

Both LG InnoTek and Sharp saw their orders for camera modules increased from the move.

Cupertino has also ordered 20% more components for the iPhone 13 compared to iPhone 12.

This will see LG InnoTek increase its supply of camera modules substantially to the iPhone maker.

All four models of the iPhone 13 series will have sensor shift technology, which means the unit prices for the camera modules will also go up.

Sensor shift prevents blurry pictures by adjusting the sensor rather than the lens.

Apple had applied the technology to iPhone 12 Pro Max previously.
