Report: Apple starting A-series chip production in New York

Following rumors earlier this year that Apple was looking to partner with other chip manufacturers, the Times Union reports that preparations are actually under way at GlobalFoundries Fab 8 complex in Malta, New York to produce chips for Apple’s iPhone and iPad devices. Citing a “source close to the company” the Times Union report also notes that Samsung will be assisting with the start-up of the new manufacturing program, intended to provide a second U.S. source for Apple’s A-series chips. The report also notes that it’s unclear whether GlobalFoundries is being sub-contracted by Samsung or begin contracted directly by Apple as an alternate supplier. A GlobalFoundries spokesperson refused to confirm or deny the story, indicating that the company “does not comment on customer engagements or products unless they do so first.” [via MacRumors]
