Apple to Choose New Manufacturer for A6 Chip in 2012 [Rumor]

Rumors have it that the lawsuits between Apple and Samsung  have finally taken its toll and may part ways.

Looks like the patent lawsuits could finally be taking its toll on Apple and Samsung’s partnership. If this rumor ends up being true, it was only after a matter of time that after fighting with each other so much that one of them was going to abandon the other. Apple has obviously not commented on this, but rumors have to come from somewhere and there has been chatter between Apple and TSMC.

iPhone 4 A5 Chip Processor

The current A5 chip was made by Samsung but looks like the A6 A6 ARM CPU based on a 28nm process will be made by someone else. This is not the first time that there have been rumors between Apple and TSMC since (back in March) they were suppose to produce the current A5 but Samsung won the battle there. Intel has also shown interest in making Chips for Apple but time will tell who Apple decides to do business with.
