Apparently Samsung provided the ARM core and did manufacturing of the whole chip, but Apple designed the other blocks.

The good thing about ARM is vendor independence for the core architecture.

If you mean volume wise, we are already there if iPad/iPhone continue to rise in acceptance. A 25% share of 1 billion handsets per year is close to all 260 million pc units sold which include AMD. If you mean will they prevail over Intel like Intel did over AMD/PowerPC, the power performance ratios will decide that. Right now the edge is for ARM.
