Report: TSMC wins all Apple’s A10 chip business

Taiwan’s Commercial Times referenced unnamed people in Apple’s supply chain as sources for the story.

This would represent a rejection for Samsung and Globalfoundries – its partner in 14nm FinFET manufacturing. Samsung is thought to have a 50 percent share of production of the current processor, the A9 which is shipping in the recently launched iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. It would also be a bounce back into Apple’s favor for TSMC.

Mass production of the A10 processor is expected to start in March 2016 so that parts can be ready for the iPhone 7 to launch in about September 2016. In addition Apple’s A10 will use TSMC’s integrated fan-out (InFO) wafer-level packaging technology, the report said.
