Apple reportedly already planning move back to Samsung for future processors

Apple Samsung Processor Production

It looks like Apple and Samsung are destined to be frenemies for life. A new report claims that Apple’s switch to TSMC for its next-generation processor production is only temporary, and the company is already planning to switch back to Samsung for its mobile chipset fabrication beginning in 2015. The report comes from Korea Economic Daily, which doesn’t name its sources but claims Apple’s A9 processor on schedule to launch in 2015 will use a 14-nanometer process. Earlier reports suggested that Apple is switching away from Samsung’s chip fabrication services to TSMC beginning next year, but now it looks as though any switch Apple is planning may be short-lived.
