The new iPhone 15 series has seen sales totaling 68.79 million units since its fall release in September 2023.

Despite experiencing a decrease in sales compared to previous versions, the iPhone continues to be one of the most well-known modern products in the world.

In this graphic, we showcase the manufacturers of the iPhone 15 based on data from TrendForce.

Foxconn Remains the Dominant Supplier

Foxconn, also known as Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., is a Taiwanese electronics contract manufacturer. The company produces roughly two out of every three iPhones, as well as devices for other brands like Google and Sony.

Following Foxconn is China-based Luxshare, responsible for producing 25% of the iPhone 15s.

In recent years, Luxshare has expanded its role in Apple’s supply chains, manufacturing other products such as the Apple Watch, AirPods, and even the Vision Pro headset. The company was one of Bloomberg’s Top 50 companies to watch in 2023, and its CEO, Wang Laichun, is one of China’s richest women with a net worth of roughly $7 billion.

Our list also includes the Taiwanese company Pegatron, responsible for 35% of iPhone 15 Plus and 30% of iPhone 15 Pro manufacturing. In addition to Apple, Pegatron has become a significant component supplier for Tesla in recent years.

India’s largest conglomerate, Tata Group, completes the group with a smaller share of production (5%). Established in 1868, the company also operates other businesses like Tata Motors, Tata Steel, and Air India.

iPhone producers also rely on a vast network of component suppliers. More than 200 companies worldwide manufacture and supply the components necessary for Apple iPhone production. These components include memory chips, glass screen interfaces, casings, and cameras.

One would be hard-pressed to find a company that has never changed its logo. Granted, some brands—like Rolex, IBM, and Coca-Cola—tend to just have more minimalistic updates. But other companies undergo an entire identity change, thus necessitating a full overhaul.

In this graphic, we visualized the evolution of prominent tech companies’ logos over time. All of these brands ranked highly in a Q1 2024 YouGov study of America’s most famous tech brands. The logo changes are sourced from 1000logos.net.

How Many Times Has Google Changed Its Logo?

Google and Facebook share a 98% fame rating according to YouGov. But while Facebook’s rise was captured in The Social Network (2010), Google’s history tends to be a little less lionized in popular culture.

For example, Google was initially called “Backrub” because it analyzed “back links” to understand how important a website was. Since its founding, Google has undergone eight logo changes, finally settling on its current one in 2015.

Another fun origin story is Microsoft, which started off as Traf-O-Data, a traffic counter reading company that generated reports for traffic engineers. By 1975, the company was renamed. But it wasn’t until 2012 that Microsoft put the iconic Windows logo—still the most popular desktop operating system—alongside its name.

And then there’s Samsung, which started as a grocery trading store in 1938. Its pivot to electronics started in the 1970s with black and white television sets. For 55 years, the company kept some form of stars from its first logo, until 1993, when the iconic encircled blue Samsung logo debuted.

Finally, Apple’s first logo in 1976 featured Isaac Newton reading under a tree—moments before an apple fell on his head. Two years later, the iconic bitten apple logo would be designed at Steve Jobs’ behest, and it would take another two decades for it to go monochrome.
