It looks like Apple and Samsung are destined to be frenemies for life. A new report claims that Apple's switch to TSMC for its next-generation processor production is only temporary, and the company is already planning to switch back to Samsung for its mobile chipset fabrication beginning in 2015. The report comes from Korea Economic Daily. Earlier reports suggested that Apple is switching away from Samsung's chip fabrication services to TSMC beginning next year, but now it looks as though any switch Apple is planning may be short-lived. A Chinese woman has reportedly died after answering a call when her iPhone 5 was still charging. Apple has confirmed that it will investigate the cause of the woman's death. A new report claims that Apple won't release its second-generation iPad mini with a Retina display until next year. According to Taiwan-based news site Economic Daily News, shortages with Retina display panels have forced Apple to delay the next iPad mini's launch. Apple was originally planning to release its second-generation iPad mini in the fourth quarter this year according to the site, but the smaller tablet is now reportedly on track for an early 2014 debut. Economic Daily News also suggests that Apple may release a non-Retina iPad mini alongside the high-resolution tablet at a lower price point. less
