Apple renews its contract with Imagination Technologies

Apple has signed a new multi-year contract with Imagination Technologies. Apple began dealing with the company in February 2014, when it used its own technologies to manufacture the GPU graphics chip in its famous processors (the A family). But in 2017, Apple told Imagination Technologies that it would dispense with their services within two years, and the goal at the time was for Apple to rely on itself in manufacturing the GPU. At this time, Imagination Technologies said that Apple could not manufacture processor chips within two years without using its technology. And it looks like they were right as Apple got them back and signed a new multi-year agreement to develop graphics architectures. It is reported that this Imagination Technology company was sold last year to a Chinese company called Canyon Bridge.
