Apple Inks Chip Tech Deal With Arm

Apple has signed a new deal with Arm for chip technology that "extends beyond 2040," according to Arm's initial public offering documents filed recently, Stephen Nellis reported for Reuters.


Apple utilizes Arm's technology in the process of designing its custom chips for iPhones, iPads, and Macs.



Arm unveiled pricing on Tuesday for what it hopes will be a $52 billion initial public offering, which would be the largest such deal in the US this year.


Arm owner SoftBank Group plans to offer 95.5 million American depository shares of the United Kingdom-based company for $47 to $51 apiece, as stated in Arm's filing. Arm owns the intellectual property behind the computing architecture for most of the world's smartphones, which it licenses to Apple and many others.
