What is OEM?
An original equipment manufacturer, or OEM product refers to the company that originally manufactured the product. When referring to electronic parts, OEM designates a replacement part made by the manufacturer of the original.
For instance, most Apple products are made by Foxconn NOT Apple themselves as most people assume. When Foxconn make a product for Apple Inc, Apple will then sell the product under their brand with fancy packaging. Foxconn can then supply the same product without the packaging and Apple logo to other companies, this product is basically the same and is called an OEM product.
