Apple always chooses Samsung as its main Hardware chipset manufacturer, Both companies worked together on A6, A7 and A8 chips. According to Etnews, Samsung started making the Apple A9 chipset using a 14nm FinFET design. Apple A9 chips will be included inside the upcoming iPhone / iPad devices Next year (2015).

 

Samsung has two plants capable of making this chip, but for an unannounced reason it will only be making the A9 in Austin, Texas. Work on that plant was started in late 2012 with a $3.9 Billion investment, specifically with the idea of making Apple chipsets.

TSMC will not let go of the lucrative Apple deal easily and has a competing 16nm FinFET Plus process ready to go. Even though TSMC made the bulk of Apple A8 chips, Samsung still got a cut so sourcing the new chipset from two companies is quite likely.
