Some American media also said that regardless of whether TSMC's foundry costs will be increased to Apple, the raw materials required for Apple chips have increased sharply, which forced them to raise prices to transmit it to consumers.
In addition, a series of suppliers such as Qualcomm supplied chips to Apple, in the face of the price increase of foundry and raw materials, have also been on the way to raise or prepare for price increases. This has also led to an increase in Apple's purchase cost. Look, this will also force Apple to act.
