While the legal battle raised over such crucial matters as whether or not Steve Jobs invented the rounded rectangle, Apple moved away from Samsung as its main producer of chips. In fact analysts believed that in the long term Samsung would lose any Apple production completely.
According to the Maeil Business Newspaper it seems that Apple has changed its mind and Samsung is back to being the main supplier of processors powering Apple iPhones.
It looks like Samsung will be responsible for around 75 percent of the chip production for the next iPhone, the South Korean newspaper said.
The newspaper did not say how much the contract is worth and what other company will be supplying Apple. Samsung will make the chips from its factory in Austin, Texas, according to the report.
What appears to have happened is that not only has the row between Samsung and Apple cooled, Jobs’ Mob discovered that Samsung’s rivals, such as TSMC were not up to snuff or had capacity problems.
