RUMOR: Apple Talking To Intel For Mobile Chipsets

Posted Dec 3, 2012

Apple is working on shifting away from the Samsung partnership that is in place.  Apple was one of Samsung’s top customers for mobile chipsets, but now the two companies are embroiled in patent lawsuits against each other.

Now Apple is in talks with Intel about mobile chipsets according to RBC Capital analyst Doug Freedman.  Intel is said to help manufacture Apple’s mobile processors.  Apple may incorporate Intel’s X86 processors in future products aside from just Mac computers.
