The legal battle between Samsung and Apple has already disturbed the whole silicon market, as Apple trying at first to make some space from Samsung to freely sue them at different places. As we learned last month that Apple had signed a deal with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) to build the next generation A6 and A7 processors for the future iOS devices such as iPad 3 and iPhone 5.
Samsung was one of the most identical manufacturing partners of the Apple since the days of A4 & A5 processor chips production for the iPhone 4, iPad and iPad 2, but several reports from around the world suggests that Apple has been continuously trying to shift his business to some other manufacture., and therefore they have signed the deal with TSMC for the production of A6 & A7& processor chips.
But now according to the today’s report of the The Korea Times have spin off the whole drama and claimed that Apple is still sticks to the Samsung for the production of A6 for the future iOS devices, while they will develop their processors from the TSMC for the future devices, at this time TSMC has not experienced such demand from any vendor and Apple does not want to take risk on its future devices.
The unconditional shift back to the Samsung for the production of A6 is said to be that TSMC having issues with the production process and Apple requires a stable component supplier for its device, as we all know Apple is also popular for bulk orders from its component manufactures.
