7s: Samsung is already vying to take care of the A11 processor
If the latest rumors are correct, TSMC will handle the majority (if not all) of the production of A10 processor of the iPhone 7. Samsung would be set aside and this can be a hassle for him. Indeed, Apple is a big customer, losing a year's time can play in its financial results.
But all is not lost for Samsung, the Korean manufacturer might again ally with Apple in 2017 for future iPhone. Indeed, Samsung managed to burn 10 nm processors, where TSMC's 14 nm for now. More burning a processor is, the more the processor is efficient and energy consumption is low.
TSMC and Samsung are busy A9 processor of the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. But TSMC products produced processors are more powerful and use less hair battery. This is certainly the reason that prompted Apple to provide only TSMC iPhone 7. But TSMC is not the number one in terms of technological advancement and burning more precisely.
We still have time before you see the A11 processor, Apple will certainly decide by year's end that Samsung or TSMC will handle this task. In any case, Samsung would resume its primary assembler instead.
