Apple has held talks about investing in a $100 billion technology fund that SoftBank aims to launch next year, according to a person with knowledge of the discussions.
Apple may contribute as much as $1 billion to the fund, which would give the company insight into up-and-coming technologies.
Apple invested $1 billion in May in Chinese ride-hailing company Didi Chuxing. The deals would mark a shift in strategy for the iPhone maker, which has largely concentrated on acquiring startups valued at less than $1 billion.
