Not so sure about this one. Apple and Samsung signed a deal (so many millions of chips at a certain price) until 2014. If it is true then it's because Apple is no longer entitled to volume discounts because they've cut the supply orders.
Since Apple's chip design division has scored a major hit with the A6 line, they could be thinking now was is a good time to seek new partners.
