The next round, according to the source, will be at TSMC. With reference to informed sources, the resource indicates that TSMC and all will be the exclusive supplier of 16-nanometer platforms Apple A10 next year. They will be manufactured using the technology of volume chip layout InFO (integrated fan-out). The reasons for the conclusion of Apple's exclusive contract with TSMC, are not specified.


The current platform Apple A9, according to some sources, TSMC and Samsung are available in equal shares. Moreover, the chips are produced in different manufacture (14 nm from Samsung, 16 nm in TSMC) and, as a consequence, have different crystal area. According to tests, in most scenarios iPhone 6s processor TSMC are working longer in offline mode, as well as less heat than specimens with chips Samsung.

Observers note that orders Apple has played a critical role in the dynamics of the growth of Samsung.
