Foxconn or Intel themselves, though it's Foxconn is the more well received opinion of the two.

Did Apple made anything by themself?

they just take ideas and add a few new things call it something new and then try and take the copy right for anything related to it including suing the creators of the original

 

also thank you @tristan1035

They assemble everything.

But all the components are made by other companies. Even their own mobile processors are made by samsung

The software....Apple is a software company, not a hardware company. Microsoft don't make any of the components of the Surface either.

The mobo is most likely made by their main manufacturer who makes computer PCBs and stuff. They have a list of suppliers if you are interested. Its like how any other company runs, they create and idea and most of them hire a Chinese Manuf to make it.

im guessing foxconn boards, intel cpus, elpida ram, sharp panels and the lowest bidder for everything else because-bottom line cost+high price=profit

pretty much the same with thier phones,

board-foxconn

screen-sharp (maybe lg)

nand-samsung likely

ram-samsung

cpu-samsung, arm licenced architecture.

battery-who cares.

body-die cast

glass-corning

Its really still theirs. They have a numerous amount of Apps too. Just because its based off of Linux doesnt mean they didn't work hard to get it working. I guess Steam OS isn't really theirs... its just Linux? So Why not just download Linux?

Ahh...neither of them are based on Linux?

 

Windows uses the NT kernel, which I don't think has ever been based off of or even inspired by Linux. Microsoft has written significant contributions to the Linux kernel in the past though, but they don't typically support them for any length of time and they are removed.

 

iOS and OS/X are very loosely based off of BSD, not Linux. In particular, they are based off of Darwin OS, which was released open source by Apple. Darwin does use code from FreeBSD, as well as various other places including NEXT - which was purchased by Apple.

NEXT was an almost freelance idea apple had that was working separately to them then they bought it back or something to that extent

It's the company Steve Jobs founded after he was fired from Apple. Apple bought it it in the 90s, which bought Jobs back to Apple.

By mobile I meant the A series chips used in the iphone and ipad

 

Anyway why does it matter who makes the components? There's no electronic device that has every component made by one company. 

You buy apple for OSX and for the design of the products, which I must say is quite nice for everything except the newest imac.
