iphone 6 air concept

Samsung will work with Apple to manufacture A8 chipsets for its forthcoming iPhone 6. That’s according to an anonymous inside source at the Korean company, contradicting stories last week that Sammy was being edged out in favour of Taiwan Semiconductor (TSMC).

It was believed that low yields of A8 chipsets from Samsung factories had convinced Cupertino to break its relationship with its fiercest rival. Well, that and the countless smartphone patent courtroom battles they've played out in recent years, of course.

However, Samsung is said to be finishing up testing of the A8 chip, before mass production gets going at its plant in Austin, Texas.

TSMC is believed to have already begun mass producing the A8 chip. It comes earlier in the iPhone’s life cycle than previous devices, with the apparent intention of giving Cupertino more flexibility when it comes to launch dates.

The iPhone 6 is expected to hit shelves this autumn.
