It is being reported that Samsung will provide the processors for the next generation iPhone, in addition to earlier rumors that it will make the chips for the Apple smartwatch. The processor will be based on the ARM A9 architecture and will be an upgrade from the current A8. Apple relied on both Samsung and Taiwan Semiconductor for the iPhone 6, but TSMC is still using the 20nm process while Samsung has moved to 14nm. It was previously rumored that Samsung is planning to use its Exynos chip for the next Galaxy S smartphone rather than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, giving Samsung access to a large portion of upcoming smartphone sales.
