Apple is not going to take any help from Samsung to construct its A8 chips, as the Cupertino company has been reportedly left the Korean giant from providing the specific component due to the low rate of production.
In 2013, the Wall Street Journal stated that TSMC would begin working on Apple’s A8 chips at the beginning of 2014. The Taiwan based company was expected to handle 70% of the chip production. Samsung was expected to deal with the remaining portion of the A8 production.
According to Mac Rumors, the issue in the production process might be the cause of Samsung’s elimination. However, it has been informed that dropping out the Korean company will not affect Apple’s A9 chip production in the next year.
