According to a report from the Korean publication ET News, Samsung has started production on the processor for Apple’s new iPhone that will launch next year.
Samsung is making the so-called A9 chips at its facility in Austin, TX.
Last month, The Korea Times reported that Samsung won a big contract to make chips for Apple’s next iPhone.
This year, a different company called Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC) made most of the chips for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
Samsung only made a small percentage of the iPhone chips this year, which is partly to blame for the dramatic 60% drop in profits last quarter.
Now Samsung is back to making most of Apple’s chips with TSMC helping out.
