Samsung Raises Price of Processors It Supplies Apple

Maybe Apple should have thought about their mutually beneficial relationship before becoming a patent troll?

Samsung has decided that Apple will have to start paying a significant amount more for the mobile processors that go into their iPhones and iPads.

Apple's main rival, Samsung, has reportedly begun demanding an extra 20 percent from Apple for each processor Apple purchases from them. Sources say that although Apple doesn't wish to accept the new terms, there is currently no other company that would be a good fit for Apple in terms of cost, performance and production. Apple and Samsung have a contract that keeps Samsung manufacturing at least some of Apple's parts throughout 2014.
