The report looks at the competition between vendors, such as Scottish firm Wolfson Microelectronics, to supply such seeming small-fry parts as the audio codec used in the device.

"Wolfson and several other micro-electronics manufacturers, mostly from Taiwan, are now desperately wooing Apple for the right to have their components included," the report explains.
