Apple iPhone's Processor Chip 6s, supplied Samsung
The relationship between Apple and Samsung will be increasingly close. Had arift because of patent problems, Apple was still continuing to use the services ofthe Samsung iPhone product component suppliers as hers. Even the possibility of 6s for iPhone release in the third quarter of this year, Apple choose Samsungrather than TSMC.
According to a report written Recode, the use of technology in processingbecame the main reason FinFET 14nm why Apple chooses Samsung. TSMC is mentioned still struggling with 20nm process technologies, although the company currently based in Central Taiwan was trying to make a change.
The iPhone's processor chip 6s estimated is A9. And with the use of process technology, these chips 14nm would have a thinner design plus have a highpower efficiency. So it's no surprise if Apple chooses Samsung more than TSMC.
However, TSMC hasn't seemed to stop trying. They were reportedly trying to draw attention to Apple for chip production A10 for iPhone 7. They also prepareand even 16nm process technology is expected to be able to wear a 10nmprocess technology in the year 2017.
