The Apple Watch 2 components are apparently starting to come together.

Apple has reportedly started signing component orders for the second-generation Apple Watch, a possible sign that version two of the wearable will begin mass production within the next few months.

The list of partners includes Advanced Semiconductor Engineering, Samsung, Amkor, STATS< ChipPac and Kinsus Interconnect Technology.
ASE would be the primary supplier of SiP modules for the so-called “S2” chip that is likely to power the new device. Amkor and STATS ChipPAC would serve as secondary providers.

Apple would continue to source processor fabrication and NAND storage from Samsung.

The Apple Watch 2 is rumored to be a performance upgrade as opposed to a complete redesign. It’s unknown as to when the device will be released.

Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.

  1. The picture above screams a thousand words for those who would “bring manufacturing back to the United States.” I know of NO parents who would allow or encourage their millennial children (or themselves for that matter!) to work in an environment such as that above. We and our children are too good for that! We’re all rocket surgeons and brain scientists! We’d rather be unemployed than work in a “sweat-shop” factory like that pictured here . . . right?!
