And so another bank has plopped another paper about another iPhone and another claim’s been introduced about this one manufacturer that’s going to be making all the chipsets for another iPhone. In case you need reminding, those who have cheered this development have been immersed in another “-gate” saga.
Swiss banking firm UBS, in its report on Samsung Electro-Mechanics (the semiconductor manufacturing arm of the chaebol), believes that Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company — better known as TSMC — will get the contract from Apple to produce 100 [...]
After the so-called “Chipgate” debacle that drew doubt from spec-obsessed people, Apple hopes to avoid taking another bit of effort to even think about addressing such a performance disparity. Apple ordered its A9 processors from two sources — Samsung and Taiwan-based TSMC — and we’re now expecting it to ask only one to produce its A10 processors.
We’ve heard it said before and now an international financial firm is claiming that TSMC will be the sole producer of the A10 system-on-a-chip that is expected to appear on the iPhone 7 next year.
We never stop looking ahead to the next device. We entertained the thought of the Samsung Galaxy S7 over the summer, for goodness sakes! But with a slew of new Apple products released onto the world featuring variations of Apple’s A9 processor, we might be getting sick of the silicon’s relatively faster performance already. We already had some word that TSMC could be the exclusive provider for the A10 chipset when it was finalized, but this rumor from an apparently reputable source is reopening the doors to other manufacturers.
One source close to the [...]

As much as BlackBerry can boast to you that their new operating system can run Android apps, that’s not necessarily a good thing. One of our biggest disappointments after our review of the BlackBerry Z10 is that these apps are all locked to Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and that means that you’re stuck running anything that was optimized for an operating system that was launched three years ago. Luckily the company has just announced that this is about to get a major change with BlackBerry 10.2.
Within the changes that are planned for their new upgrade, Android 4.2.2 [...]
