Apple Will Reportedly Use Samsung Chips in Next iPhone

Apple's next-generation iPhone will reportedly include a chip manufactured by its rival Samsung. While Apple has long worked with Samsung in the past to power its smartphones, the iPhone-maker recently turned to Semiconductor Manufacturing Co, ending Samsung's long-running chip partnership with the company last year. Apple's move away from Samsung was rooted in long-standing legal disputes with the Korean manufacturer over infringing patents and other issues. According to Gartner data, Apple accounted for 7.6% of the chip industry pie, spending $25.8 billion on processors just last year.
