Apple did hire company co-founder Michael Kim, and the Wi-Gear company has ceased operations, but Apple didn’t buy the company or its IP. It wasn’t a bad guess, but alas, 9to5 Mac’s Seth Weintraub didn’t report it as a guess — he reported it as a fact:
A source tells 9to5Mac that Apple scooped up a small Bluetooth
wireless headphone designer in San Francisco two months ago. […]
Apple plans to build its own stereo Bluetooth headphones for
future iOS devices and MacBooks with technology and expertise from
Weintraub has corrected the story, and published an apology for the mistake.
