“During the past several years, Apple has relied on rival Samsung for everything from memory chips to displays for its devices,” Chris Neiger writes for The Motley Fool. “But, as the competition between the two has heated up, Apple has been slowly moving away from Samsung as a supplier. ”
“According to The Wall Street Journal, Apple made yet another move this week as it received the first shipment of microprocessors from Taiwan Semiconductor,” Neiger writes. “This not only moves some microprocessor business away from Samsung, but puts Apple in a better position to negotiate prices for its processor manufacturing in the future. Meanwhile, Apple’s business could account for as much as 10% of Taiwan Semiconductor’s revenue this year — a percentage that could increase as Apple bumps up orders.”
