"Until now, Apple's mobile SoCs have been made solely by archrival Samsung, which Apple sued for infringement of its iPhone and iPad patents."

I thought companies didn't really get to know suppliers until they sue them. All that legal discovery must be a great way to get commercially intimate. But, supplier monogamy is considered a risk in the supply chain, or so I've heard.
