Rumors from the supply chain say that TSMC landed the deal to make the next Apple CPUs.
TSMC is rumored since a while to make the next Apple CPUs. Now Digitimes reports that the deal is signed according to sources. This would mean that Apple is moving away from Samsung for their Apple A6 and also Apple A7 CPUs. TSMC is supposed to use its 28nm and 20nm technologies to produce the next Apple A6 and A7 CPUs. The Apple A6 is expected to be released in 2012. Apple and Samsung are in an intense battle over smartphone and tablet patents and designs around the globe. Of course it makes sense for Apple to remove as much dependance from Samsung as possible. This is not easy as Samsung is dominating a lot of the supply chain for Apple products.

About the Geek Mind
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
