CEO Jalal Bagherli said the company's position is that there is no material change to its current ongoing relations with iPhone maker Apple.

According to a report by Business Insider, Apple is continuing to hire away designers and engineers from its leading power chips supplier Dialog Semiconductor, with around 28 hires already been made between March 2016 and now.

"Apple is obviously not helping Dialog to win this argument with investors".

Higher Oil Prices Widen US Trade Deficit
The previous month's trade deficit was revised to C$3.36 billion from the earlier estimate of C$3.18 billion. Year-to-date, the goods and services deficit increased $49.1 billion, or 11.9%, from the same period in 2016.

According to a regulatory filing on Tuesday, a subsidiary of Chinese chipmaker Tsinghua Unigroup Ltd increased its stake to 7.15 percent on November 30, the day Dialog shares fell by 20 percent on a report that Apple may design its own power-management chips.

The Nikkei Asian Review reported last weekthat Apple could start using its own power management chips as early as next year.

Dialog Semiconductor is finding out what happens when you put most of your eggs (or apples, perhaps) in one basket. Imagination was subsequently sold off in two separate deals. Dialog, which has previously declined to name Apple, referring to it only obliquely as its "largest customer" or its "main business", said it had received a special dispensation from Apple to mention it. A source close to the firm said the attrition rate was better than usual, and that Apple hired designers and engineers for its Munich design centre from several firms, including Dialog.

Bagherli said that Apple's feedback on 2019 products has been "very good" and Dialog will know more come March when new business terms are expected to be signed with Apple for 2019.
