Intel CEO reaffirms relationship with Apple in face of ARM rumors

Intel CEO Brian Krzanich has spoken about his company's relationship with Apple, following rumors that Apple will be moving away from Intel processors in its Mac lines in favor of internally-developed, ARM-based chips. Kraznich said that Intel continues to enjoy a strong relationship with Apple, and that no discussions of this sort had taken place between the two companies. He also noted that Apple would use the supplier that benefited them most, saying to CNBC:

Apple is always going to choose the supplier who can provide them the most amount of capability and innovation for them to build on, for them to innovate. They're a company based on innovation. So our job is to continue to deliver parts that have that capability, that are better than our competitors, and then they want to use our parts.
