We heard back in June a rumor that Apple was moving away its processor production from Samsung, and the company tipped to get the contract was the Taiwan Seminconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC).
We reported back in June that the next generation of Apple processors for the iPhone and iPad, the A6 would be produced by TSMC, and now according to a recent report Apple and TSMC have now signed a deal for the production of the processors.
TSMC is believed to have quietly secured Apple’s contract, and even succeeded in extending the deal to cover the manufacture for the A6’s successor, the sources said.
It isn’t clear what will happen to Samsung, who produced the A4 and A5 processors for Apple, but we suspect with the 20 different legal cases going on aound the world between Apple and Samsung the company wont be producing any more processors for Apple.
