APPLE'S Inc's latest iPhones hit stores around the world on Friday, featuring components made by the Intel Corp and Toshiba among others, according to the two firms that cracked open the iPhone Xs and Xs Max models.

The study by repair firm iFixit  and chip analysis firm TechInsights, published this week, are among the detailed teardowns of the phones, which reviews suggested were a subtle upgrade from the tenth anniversary iPhone X.

Supplying parts for a Apple's IPhones is considered a coup for chipmakers and other manufacturers. While Apple published a  broad list suppliers each year, it does not disclose which companies make components and insists that its suppliers keep quiet.

That makes teardowns the only way of establishing the breakdown of parts in the phones, although analysts also recommend caution in drawing conclusions. because Apple sometimes uses more than one supplier for a part.

What is found in iPhone may not be found in others. Apple could not immediately be reached for comment.

The  breakdown listed no parts from Samsung and no chips from Qualcom Inc.

Samsung in the past has supplied memory chips for Apple's iPhones and was believed by analysts to be the sole supplier of  the costly display for last year's Phone X.

Qualcomm has been a supplier of  components to Apple for years, but the two have been locked in a  wide-ranging  legal dispute in which Apple has accused Qualcomm of unfair patent licensing practices.

US based Qualcomm, the world's largest mobile phone chipmaker has in turn accused Apple of patent infringement.

Qualcomm said in July that Apple intended to solely use ''competitor's modems'' in its next iPhone release.[Agencies].

The honor and serving of the latest technical  research on iPhone continues.
