Three semiconductor product packaging companies have reportedly been tapped by Apple to help supply the company's next-generation "A8" mobile processor.

Amkor Technology, STATS ChipPAC and Advanced Semiconductor Engineering will all handle packaging orders for the "A8" chip, according to DigiTimes.

The A8 that's likely to power Apple's 2014 iPhone and iPad upgrades is rumored to be a package-on-package system-on-a-chip solution with processors and mobile DRAM in a single package.

The current A7, which powers the iPhone 5s, iPad Air, and iPad mini with Retina display, marked the first time Apple used the same chip in all of its latest iPhones and iPads.
