There were lots of rumors regarding a possible Apple move in the opposite direction of Samsung as a supplier and TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company) has been mentioned in several reports as a viable option for replacing the South Korean manufacturer. The quad-core chips made by the Taiwanese firm are claimed to be more efficient, being built with the 20 nanometers process.

A new report has surfaced according to which the rumored switch, slated for late 2013/early 2014, has been accelerated. TSMC could start shipping chips to Apple “starting as early as the second quarter of 2013”, according to Credit Suisse. The report also claims that TSMC would start producing chips for Apple using the 28 nanometer technology, opposed to previous claims that talked about Cupertino being interested in 20nm chips.
