Seems like sticking to what they do best is the secret to their continued success... Their own fab would likely be more of a distraction than a help.

Apple only needs a few things. CPUs and flash memory. If they focused on this alone they could secure their supply chain. Focus would be the real road to success.

If Apple builds or buys a FAB to produce its own parts then it will be their DOWNFALL...!!

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
