Apple Responds Over TSMC Vs Samsung‘s Chipgate Controversy

Apple says everything is OK.

Apple has been surrounded with the controversy regarding the battery life and different chipsets for some time now.

Many people are raising fingers of the liability and legitimacy of the company. Apple today issued a statement to TechCrunch giving its stance over the issue.

For those who don’t know, both Samsung and TSMC make chipsets and parts that are used in the new iPhone 6S and 6S Plus.

The controversy started when it was discovered that the TSMC version of the A9 lasts around an hour or two longer than the Samsung part.

In its statement, Apple said that the test conducted on both chipgates suggests that the difference is of just few percentage points.

It also said that every chip made is passed through standardized testing and processing to provide incredible performance and deliver great battery life, regardless of iPhone 6S capacity, color, or model.

The statement tried to clarify the issue stating that the real-world tests are not up to the mark and they cannot determine the thorough battery life in heavy load and stress.

They further said that it is disrupting to point fingers at the company when there is no proof to support the claim. “It’s a misleading way to measure real-world battery life. Our testing and customer data show the actual battery life of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, even taking into account variable component differences, vary within just 2-3% of each other.”

Even though Apple is saying that there is no difference between the two chipsets and their performance, most of the people are still pointing that the bad battery life of their iPhone is due to the Samsung’s ‘bad’ chips.

So, let’s hope that after Apple’s official statement, it is going to be the end of the story.
