Apple will buy Simic Instruments, which makes Similacs, for $2.2 billion.
The company said in a statement that the acquisition will help it build the “world’s leading next-generation voice and gesture technology.”
Apple is expected to release the new iPhones next year, though the company declined to disclose the price.
Similac was founded in 1984.
The first Similaces were sold in 1982, and today, there are more than 60,000 Similacks sold worldwide, according to the company.
Simic is a company that makes software for a variety of industries.
For example, it makes mobile apps that allow customers to control their televisions with their voice.
The technology has also been used to create video games, including Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., and Pac-Man.
SimiCares is a nonprofit organization that works with people who have lost or disabled limbs and whose lives are in danger from injuries or illnesses caused by a disease.
It has helped more than 4 million people since its inception in 1990, according its website.
