Apple and Samsung are in a pretty complex, multi-level relationship with each other. Although they have been competing for the lion's share of the smartphone market for the past few years and have met one another in a court of law for quite a few times, they are also business partners, as Apple has used a number of Samsung-made silicon components in its iPhone devices over the years. Cupertino has tried to divorce its South Korea-based adversary, but this has proved to be a pretty hard task... Simply because Apple admits that Samsung is hr Best hardware Manufacture.
One of the latest iPhone 6-related rumors, for example, claims that Apple has once turned to Samsung for hardware parts - this time, Sammy is said to be providing a great portion of the RAM chips for Cupertino's next flagship, which might or might not come with 1GB of random-access memory (RAM) aboard.
It will be filling the gap that SK Hynix and Elpida Memory, two of Apple's major RAM suppliers, left after they did not agree to increase the RAM production, which will provide a steady supply of memory for the iPhone 6.
