Apple Just Delivered Samsung A Big Win
This is a big win for Samsung.
This year, Apple switched away from Samsung and had a company called Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC) make most of the iPhone and iPad chips, The Wall Street Journal reported. Samsung still made a a small percentage of Apple's chips, but it was a big loss of business. It's also part of the reason why Samsung's profits have been dropping like a rock this year.
But the new deal means Samsung will make 80% of Apple's iPhone and iPad chips again, the Korea Times reports. The deal is worth "billions," according to the report.
Apple designs its own chips for the iPhone and iPad, but needs a manufacturing partner to actually build them. Historically, that manufacturer has been Samsung. But it switched to TSMC this year. Now it looks like TSMC isn't cutting the mustard, so it's back to Samsung again.
