Apple-Samsung Partnership Not Over Yet The A7 chip produced by Samsung is still being used in Apple's iPhone 5S

Apple may have been fighting Samsung over the patent issues, but it doesn’t mean that the tech giant is going to end its relationship with the Korean company very soon

After a series of patent clashes between Apple and Samsung, many people think that the relationship between the two companies will be ended very soon. But, a new analysis proves that the speculation is wrong.

Nihon Keizai Shimbun, Japan’s largest business newspaper, reported on the latest analysis of the iPhone 5S performed by the Nikkei Electronics, stating that the A7 chip, produced by Samsung, is still present in the device. It clearly shows that both the rivals are still working together.

Earlier, Chipworks revealed that the new iPhone 5S had been equipped with the A7 processor.

The A7 chip, the first 64 bit processor applied in a smartphone, is used not only in Apple’s iPhone 5S but also in iPad Mini Retina and iPad Air.

In addition to the A7 processor, Nikkei Electronics stated that they had found a dual core CPU and quad core GPU.

According to CNET, there is no possibility of seeing the end of Apple-Samsung partnership. However, Apple has been recently found to attempt to decrease the dependence over Samsung, as it employs Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), the world’s largest chip producer, to deal a significant portion of its works related to the chips.

In addition to TSMC, Global Foundries is also considered as a strong manufacturer to provide Apple with the necessary components.
