Message Text: Reports for Apple today say that the company has reduced its orders for memory chips from Samsung Electronics. Seperately, Apple is reportedly working on a streaming radio service that would challenge Pandora.

Citing an unnamed industry source, The Korea Economic Daily newspaper reported on Friday that Apple had dropped Samsung from the list of memory chip suppliers for the upcoming iPhone 5, choosing Toshiba, Elpida Memory and SK Hynix to supply DRAM and NAND chips.

Apple also picked China's Amperex Technology Ltd and Panasonic as battery suppliers for the new smartphone, dropping Samsung SDI from the initial supplier list, the Korea Economic Daily added.

LG Display is the main display supplier of Apple, as Sharp has fallen behind schedule on iPhone display production.

Nor Samsung neither Apple commented on the report.

Samsung has been a core Apple supplier, producing micro processors, flat screens and memory chips for the iPhone, iPad and iPod.

Apple may be seeking to diversify its memory chip supply lines, as the two companies are locked in global patent disputes.

A second report surfaced today by the Wall Street Journal said that Apple was in talks to license music for a custom-radio service that would challenge Pandora and similar virtual radio stations.

The Journal said Apple's service would work across its devices, including the iPhone, iPad tablet and Mac computers and possibly devices running Microsoft's OS - but not Android.

The music on Apple's service would be interspersed with ads, the report said.
