Apple (AAPL -0.5%) roundup: 1) Samsung has reportedly raised its prices for making Apple's A-series app processors by 20%. Apple is dependent on Samsung for A-series production for now, but is widely believed to be eying a deal with TSMC (TSM). 2) In a very questionable rumor, a Chinese paper claims Apple will begin trial production of an iPhone 5S in December. 3) A former senior engineer bemoans the loss of Scott Forstall, whom he calls "the best approximation of Steve Jobs that Apple had left."
