Despite patent wars Apple still dependant on Samsung for chipsets
We have seen the heating patent wars between Samsung and Apple in the last few months and now according to industry insiders Apple will continue to use chipsets made by Samsung in its future devices. It is being said that Apple has placed an order with Samsung to manufacture the A6 processor which it’ll use in the next generation of iPhone.
It is also to be noted that Apple is also Samsung’s largest overseas client which accounts to about $8 billion dollars for Samsung. So patent war or not, Apple and Samsung are inter-dependent.
