Apple Gives Orders Processing Chips to TSMC, WSJ Says

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. got orders from Apple Inc. for processing chips used in its iPhones and iPads, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing an unidentified company official.

The move is part of Apple’s shift away from relying on Samsung Electronics Co. for components with the new chips to be made from next year, the newspaper reported. Elizabeth Sun, a spokeswoman for Hsinchu, Taiwan-based TSMC, declined to comment on the report. A call to Takashi Takebayashi, a Tokyo-based spokesman for Apple, wasn’t immediately returned.
