Iltgen went on say that Apple has a team of 80 engineers that are now working on a homegrown PMIC at design centers located in California and Germany, and that the Apple chips could arrive in iPhones as early as 2019. Power management chips manage voltage and charging across the components in a mobile device.
The main loser in the news is Dialog Semiconductor, the British company that previously supplied power management chips to Apple. The company says that it has already designed the power management chips for the 2017 and 2018 iPhones so there might not be an immediate change. In-sourcing display driver chips would give Apple more control over power and performance while also reducing dependence on Samsung for OLED displays.

However, Apple has already begun work on building their own team and have recruited several of Dialog's engineers to help lead it. Dialog replaces numerous discrete power administration spares with one exceedingly incorporated gadget, empowering our users to create lighter and thinner convenient applications with higher power effectiveness bringing about longer battery life.
