The iPhone 6 is expected to be launched next month, the handset is apparently in production, and now according to a recent report, Apple has turned to Samsung to supply the RAM for the new iPhone 6.
Samsung has been a major supplier of components for Apple’s devices for years, although since 2013, Apple has looked elsewhere for parts for the iPhones and iPads.
This is mainly because of the various legal battles between the two companies, and now according to a recent report, Apple has ordered RAM for the new iPhone 6 from Samsung.
Over the last year two companies, SK Synix and Elipda Memory have been supplying the RAM for Apple devices, and Apple asked these companies to increase RAM production for the iPhone 6.
It would appear that the reason that Apple has had to approach Samsung to supply RAM for the new iPhone, is because the two existing suppliers it uses are unable to supply the amount of RAM chips that Apple needs.
The new iPhone 6 is rumored to go on sale on the 19th of September, Apple are expected to make the device official at their press event on the 19th of September, there are two models coming this year, one with a 4.7 inch display which is rumored to land in September, the other with a 5.5 inch display which is expected later in the year.
