They actually have 32 part mold cavities now (for small enough parts) making the small parts highly cost efficient and scalable.

Apple just completed the update of the LQMT Trademark to include hinges and small gears (among other items).

Apple has been testing BMG hinges this past summer for idevices. People speculated it to be for a foldable phone, but I think it was for the Macbook Pro/Air which are due second half of this year. These devices are said to be redesigned with a much thinner body (which was already extremely thin to begin with).

ASHM seemed to me to be thrown together hastily, as if they had other plans. The Macbook Pro was expected to be released days before the ASHM, but Apple pulled it for an unknown reason.

And Apple Watch 7 expected for release in September, also with a completely redesigned body.
