Apple and Samsung reportedly hug it out, will be partners once again from 2015 on
posted by Chris P. / Jul 15, 2013, 7:35 AM
Citing industry sources, the deal was signed yesterday, July 14, and the decision was prompted by Samsung's earlier arrival at the next frontier – 14nm FinFET chips that will, reportedly, power whatever the iPhone 7 turns out to be. Keeping the salt at an immediate distance, we can definitely see Apple and Samsung putting aside their differences (to put it lightly) for a mutual benefit.
We'll keep a watchful eye and keep you updated should more information leak out.

That's not possible...there are still millions of people buying phones off-contract rather than on-contract.

What a dummy, and he actually probably thinks that too Nathan. As if 2013 is the year we'll never see another new phone. Abcdefgh"iHater"jklmnopqrstuvwxyz no more after the iPhone 5. Don't know how apple will stay alive. Sing it abc style.

14 nm? Where is the previous node of 22/20 nm? Samsung has not reached that one (yet)

If you think about it, whatever grudge Apple is holding over Samsung for the design patents, it's years past and the Galaxy like has the design of it's own. So even if the lawsuit is ongoing, which I still believe will end out of court, there's no business logic in ignoring the Korean resources. The iPhone market share is tightening, and they cannot allow a HTC One to happen, so it's sensible not to sever ties and get a much heftier offer when they come back.

Samsung and Apple are frenemies, their relationship is quite complicated. After suing they will be partners, and after that, they will start the suing again, and after that they will be partners again...

Only Samsung can provide the quality and quantity that Apple require. Apple had no choice except to beg for forgiveness, Samsung really should tell them to get lost or hike up the prices. Samsung can go it alone where as Apple cannot.

Congratulations to Apple and Samsung, every loving couple have had their fights... It's always a good time for everyone around when partners kiss and make up... It's also good on my eco-system being the carrier of the Note and iphone. :)
