Even though TSMC have declined to comment, but its shares have managed to rise up 2.33 percent. Right at this moment it is not confirmed whether Samsung is involved in the project. Samsung is Apple’s chip manufacturing partner to Cupertino’s woe but TSMS claims to be the sole manufacturer.

Samsung has produced all of the mobile CPUs for Apple’s iPhone and iPad, including the 64-bit A7 processor found in the iPhone 5s, iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display. Whatever is the issue, it will be disclosed in due time, but the fact that Apple is bringing something in the market is awesome.
