Apple to Use TSMC for A9 Chip Manufacturing
The battle between TSMC and Samsung has been raging for years now on who will win the bulk of manufacturing of Apple’s chips. Since 2013 Apple has been gravitating towards TSMC more. Before that, everything was made at Samsung. Now, it looks like Apple is going for TSMC yet again with the A9 chip. Apple does still use Samsung for making some things. Before, they had TSMC make the majority of chips, with Samsung doing a few. This year it looks Apple is favoring TSMC yet again, giving them the majority of the chip orders.
