Apple has hired dozens of former Texas Instruments engineers in Israel after the company cut around 250 employees, reports TNW.

According to sources close to the situation, Apple has been hiring "dozens" of engineers from Texas Instruments after the company begun cutting around 250 jobs from its Ra'anana development center as it looks to lay off around 1,700 employees (about 5 percent of its total workforce) globally.

Many of the engineers working at the development center were focused on the development of TI’s OMAP and radio (including WiFi and Bluetooth) chips, which are used a number of new smartphone and tablet devices.


The employees would work at Apple's new research center in the city of Haifa. Back in January Apple was seeking hardware engineers for chip development. It's expected that these new workers will also become part of Apple's semiconductor teams.
