There is always a lot of chatter about how much Apple and Samsung hate each other. The two companies have been locked in litigation, traded jabs in advertising, and generally played the parts of being bitter rivals. But, the big problem with that view of the relationship is that it doesn't take into account two things: money, and marketing...

Might be not the latest news. But Samsung makes money more than even galaxy's line cause of Apple chipset! imagine that if Apple cancelled the contract as they mentioned in 2014.
P.S Samsung profit from Apple Iphone, Ipad and Ipod chipset manufactures around 8 billion $!

Apple can't leave Samsung if they want to avoid HTC style horrific launches.

iRonically, Apple is iNcapable of making its' own microchips ... HA, some "tech" company!!
Truth is: Apple would be no where (ZERO, ZILTCH & VOID) if it were not for the ideas and technology of others!!
Keep bringing us these riViTing and informative truths.

Which smartphone doesn't have any parts from another manufacturer? Can you name some? Thanks.

Well, at least Samsung phones have no rotten Apple cores; they may utilize other manufacturers but, they get nothing from Apple. Except, of course, size-envy iPhone owners.

Dude you need to relax, or go to Cupertino, climb the bell tower, and vent your frustrations. Maybe just go on a date...with a girl not your android device.

Maybe when Apple shift to another manufacturing company, Samsung will be able to focus more on enhancing the big.LITTLE technology, and stop relaying on other SoC companies such as Snapdragon.

There's an iPhone, and there's everything else.
