(Reuters) – Apple’s decision to stop licensing graphics chips from Imagination Technologies is the clearest example yet of the iPhone maker’s determination to take greater control of the core technologies in its products – both to guard its hefty margins and to position it for future innovations, especially in so-called augmented reality. The strategy, analysts say, has already reduced Apple’s dependence on critical outside suppliers like ARM, now owned by SoftBank. Apple once relied heavily on ARM to design the main processor for the iPhone, but it now licenses only the basic ARM architecture and designs most of the chip itself.

In other words, we managed to cut the spew of energy-related carbon even as we grew global manufacturing activity by a very respectable 3 percent. That’s never been done before. In fact, most experts are on the record as saying it wasn’t possible. Much of the credit goes to two countries.
