Analysts said that the ongoing high-profile litigation between the two companies may have accelerated Apple’s move to reduce its dependence on Samsung.
I said it earlier, but if Apple really wanted to screw over Samsung, they would find a way to not use Samsung as a supplier. It looks to me that Apple agrees, they need to diversify their suppliers. What’s most interesting to me, is how this will effect profitability for iOS hardware and quality. Hopefully the latter won’t be affected at all.
