just so you know Apple designed the chip, its just they outsourced the manufacturing to Samsung.
So basically these chips are still within apple specifications and innovations to make sure IOS runs faster w/o the need of having higher clock rates and cores running ...
Apple are not using the SoC Samsung made for their Galaxy lines.
..., 16 Jul 2013So does that mean iPhone's are really all Galaxy phones in disguise?!Somewhat. But they also use LG display, Sony cams"up from when they used Omni Vision", and even Motorola and Nokia parts. They put everything in it.
harish, 16 Jul 2013i want to know what components samsung supplying to apple Processor, ram, nand, audio, ssd, Retina display, and couple things. These are used in any or all of Iphone, Ipod, Ipad, Macbook, and such devices.
u-m-add, 16 Jul 2013Samsung only manufacturer. they not create chip for apple. Apple design its own chip. Its Appl... moreIncorrect. They use Samsung chips. The newer SOC is a different design, but with apple's record of everything else in the past it is extremely unlikely they did it themselves....but slightly possible.

Samsung copied without paying.. so thats not OK.
It has nothing to do with copy me so i copy you .. copy everywhere childish comment.

se7engold, 16 Jul 2013Well, with all the court-saga it's possible Apple got all the chips for free (or at least some... moreI think that's the exact point. There was another case I dont think Apple won. When you think about the cost of the parts from Samsung it makes sense.
Apple wants enough money to not only get all those parts free, but even get paid profit to use those parts
se7engold, 16 Jul 2013Yet in business world money talks louder than ego. So I think we won't see that scene and Sams... moreAt the time of the 1 Billion award, that 1 Billion was slightly less than the amount of money Apple spent for parts from Samsung in 1 QUARTER.
Given Samsung's quarter over quarter over quarter earnings in the last year, all I can say is "it didn't matter".
What does matter is that in many people's mind both companies have resorted to dirty business practices, which was only reinforced in the recent ebooks antitrust ruling against Apple.
Although it was Tim Cook's decision to fight, it was a memo and e-mails from none other than Steve Jobs himself that was the smoking gun.
Silver, 15 Jul 2013If i was Samsung's CEO i would not supply anymore chip to Apple rather use it as an advantage ... moreYet in business world money talks louder than ego. So I think we won't see that scene and Samsung will keep on supplying chips to Apple.
Well, with all the court-saga it's possible Apple got all the chips for free (or at least some big discount)

That has nothing to do with weather they jumped on the bandwagon or not. Did you even think out that reply or just not like it and go off?
