Samsung to manufacture A9 chip for next iPhone

Samsung will provide Apple with A9 processors for the next iPhone, Bloomberg reports. The rumored move was reported earlier this year, and now appears to be official. Last year, Apple shifted much of its chip manufacturing to Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, but the Cupertino company is returning to Samsung, ostensibly to benefit from the South Korean company’s more advanced manufacturing process. As the report notes, TSMC Chairman Morris Chang said last year that he expected his company “would lose ground to Samsung” before “reclaiming the upper hand in 2016.”
