Apple reluctantly agrees to TSMC's price increases

Taiwan has a 2.6% inflation rate. Yet TSMC claims this is the reason for waffer price increases, on top of all the increasing done in the last 2 years.
This is just exploitation and greed.
Apple is more greedy than TSMC. They deserve it.

Nobody's forcing any company to buy their chips from TSMC. They're free to go elsewhere, same as nVidia did when they went to Samsung for their last generation GPUs because they were not happy with how much TSMC wanted to charge them. Or they're welcome to go and try to get a better deal from Intel (fat chance).

If anyone is greedy in this equation it's Apple and not TSMC. If TSMC's prices are so unreasonable and exploitative then how is Apple still posting record profits every quarter?

Well, since they forced purchasing CEO out of the company for telling a joke about women's breast size on Tic-Tok, **** 'em if they can't take a joke. :🤣

I don't understand what's the problem with TSMC doing to them, what they've been doing to their customers for a couple of decades.

Maybe they could put out a press release. Something to the effect of, "oh woe is us,TSMC is making us pay way more for chips, so now we're forced to pass on double that price hike to you".
