There's the SoC school and then there's the SiP school. Maybe Apple is still deciding where to enroll...

Integration is really the key challenge and it's unclear that Apple can or wants to do that. Intel's recent Digital RF on CMOS Atom SOC ("Rosepoint") is the first of its kind; no one else has demonstrated that level of integration on a modern process tech node.

The node advantage is expected to reduce going forward if not go away. Smaller technology shrinks (22nm-14nm) are not providing the dramatic reduction in power or increase in frequency anymore. So if the Apple design team can get close to intel performance with better integration of other functions, the management would take that and get a huge improvement in margins. Remember that Apple is already pretty much vertically integrated already.

Apple's recent hires suggest that a TSMC move (for a portion of Apple's foundry needs) is imminent.

The "architecture" (x86 vs ARM) is irrelevant. x86 is actually a disadvantage, but a minor one, as all Intel chips since the Pentium immediately translate x86 into an ARM like RISC ISA. What's left is microarchitecture and circuit technology. Of these, Intel currently leads in absolute performance per core, while ARM leads in performance per watt, which translates into throughput performance.

Any idea for Apple planning to switch from Samsung to TSMC/GF or even Intel?

Samsung is doing foundry work as well as some design-for-manufacturability and post-silicon validation/verification; Intel, Global Foundries and TSMC can easily do the same.

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
