Apple

Industry sources and analysts suggest that Apple is keen to expand its semiconductor capabilities further. They say the company is interested in building core processors for notebooks, modem chips for iPhones, and a chip that integrates touch, fingerprint and display driver functions.

Apple is building ARM laptops. The interesting question is whether they'll run iOS or macOS.

My money's on the former.

_Designing_ CPUs.

These components will be fabricated by TSMC, Samsung or even Intel.

Nothing really new. Apple is comtemplating scaling up their Axx CPUs into laptops, or private server farms.
