Remember when Apple ditched Samsung for TSMC? The reverse is coming true, with reports suggesting that the Cupertino company will ditch TSMC for Samsung this time. Why?
The Commercial Times of Korea reported that Samsung and Qualcomm are working together for Apple's next-gen chips, but the reason TSMC is being shown the door is because they are taking too long to move to a smaller node.
It seems that Samsung will be able to produce 14nm chips earlier than TSMC, who are only starting with mass production of 20nm chips now.
