RumorTT: Apple to build future A-series processors in New York

Apple could move its production of its A-series processors from China to New York (NASDAQ:AAPL)

With Google building its Moto X smartphone in the US, it makes for good headlines, but what about Apple? We know that some of the Mac range are beginning to be manufactured on US soil, but this news is even better.

As it stands, Samsung is responsible for most of the A-series production, including the fancy new A7 processor that is found in the iPhone 5S, iPad Air and second generation iPad mini - which launched just yesterday. Now we have news that future A-series processors would be built-in GlobalFoundaries' Fab 8 facility, which is located in Malta, New York.

 

This deal wouldn't see Samsung pushed to the side, but it would see near total reliance on the South Korean giant (and major competitor to Apple) dropped a few notches. Apple could use both companies for the iPhone 6 production, which would increase the amount of units available at launch - giving them the ability to sell more, and reach more markets at launch - as well as slowly taking its reliance away from Samsung.
