Samsung Making Components For Apple Is Not A Strategic Advantage For Samsung

PCMag:

Keep in mind that Samsung makes many of the iPhone components, including the custom CPU, and Samsung has not even begun to leverage that sort of information.

Samsung can’t leverage that information. Apple will have paid for the tooling and paid for the manufacture. It’ll be codified contractually that Samsung manufacturing can’t give Apple’s trade secrets to the product division.
