Apple Ditches Samsung for A6 Chip Building
Apple is planning to start work on the A6 chip, and this time it won't be requiring help from rival Samsung, with whom the company is currently battling in court over lawsuits regarding patent claims and supposed copycat products.
According to Merrill Lynch analyst Dan Heyler, Apple will be using Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company to build the next generation of chips in 2012.
Helyer told China-based Commercial Times that TSMC stands a good chance of winning orders for Apple's A6 processors, reports Digitimes.
