Apple may be dropping Samsung as the manufacturer for its next-gen iPhone processors in favor of TSMC.

Back in February, it was rumored that TSMC would be the sole supplier of the A10 chip in the iPhone 7. A new report from Korea claims that the same is true of the A11 chip destined for next year’s iPhone.

At present, TSMC is already the exclusive provider of the A10 chip slated to power the next-gen iPhone. TSMC is also rumored to be the sole supplier for the A11 processor for future iOS devices.
