Washington, Tue, 12 Nov 2013 ANI

Washington, Nov. 12 (ANI): Apple is expected to hire chip manufacturer, GlobalFoundries, to make some of the chips used in its iPhones and iPads.

GlobalFoundries could soon begin manufacturing some of Apple's chips at its Fab 8 factory in Malta, N.Y., Cnet reports.

Presently, Samsung makes the majority of chips for Apple's mobile devices, which includes Apple's powerful new A7 chip that is used in the iPhone 5S, the report added.

Apple has been looking to expand its chip partners and decrease its dependency on Samsung, after the two companies have fiercely fought over patents and smartphone competition over the last few years.

The tech giant is also said to be in talks with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) for making chips for its upcoming mobile devices.

However, Samsung will continue to work on the A7 series of chips and TSMC will do A8, A9, and A9X chips, the report added. (ANI)
