Apple became the largest public company in the world the old-fashioned way: charging lots of consumers lots of money. In recent weeks, that tension has grown, as Cook and Apple (AAPL) sought to distance themselves from Facebook (FB) and the uproar over user data.

Because of this, there was always the possibility the giants might decide to buy fewer off-the-shelf parts and make their own custom chips to get an edge on one another.
