Apple to Replace Samsung Chips in 2014

According to a report from the Wall Street Journal, the long rumored split between Samsung and Apple will be official in 2014. Apple will be switching its processor business to Taiwan Semiconductor from Samsung beginning sometime in 2014.

TSMC executives say that the company's chips will begin shipping in Apple's devices in 2014. However, Samsung will remain "the primary supplier through next year," meaning that the iPhone and iPad refreshes expected in the fall of 2013 will continue to use Samsung-manufactured SoCs.
