If Apple could stick in an A15 im sure they would, but like digitimes suggests, they just dont meet the timeframe of building and testing before release. It doesnt really matter though as their customers are not hardware jockeys anyway.
"Quad-cores might be a buzzword" its not a buzzword its a fact.... it has 4 cores in it :P
From what i have read Apples IOS is not truly multitasking so it wouldn't really take advantage of quad cores.
I believe iOS will suspended apps.
Not to mention there's no way in hell a company that Apple has an interest in selling a phone with a Samsung processor under the hood, when you consider how they've been battling them, trying to get injunctions to stop the sale of Samsung phones. Samsung may be the fab for the chip, but that's it.

Dave_HH, you're wrong.
Apple and Samsung may have their issues in court but the two still overlap a large portion or their business including using Samsung cpu's and dram.
sevags, as in branded product by Samsung or fab'ed Samsung product? There is a difference. Last I checked, all hand-held devices from Apple come with A4 or A5 variant, which is core tech by Apple based on ARM cores and some fab'ed by Samsung.
