Apple Invests Billion Euros Extra in Chip Centre Munich
Apple will invest a billion euros in Munich’s European chip design centre. It is already the second time it has done so since 2021.
The chip centre is Apple’s most important development site in Europe. It focuses on three themes: 5G radio technology, energy-saving solutions for chips and solutions around analogue parts and mixed signals.
The expansion in Munich should give Apple more options to free itself from chip manufacturer Qualcomm, which now makes the radio chips for 5G.
About 2,000 people work for Apple in Munich. CEO Tim Cook visited the factory during Oktoberfest last year.
