DigiTimes reports that Samsung has informed downstream customers it will start reducing its supply of NAND flash chips to them from July to demand from Apple, which has placed a large batch of orders.
It's said that the mothership has ordered 50-million 8Gb modules. This is in addition to the 25 million they ordered last month.
