    No one but Apple's procurement people and their account rep at Samsung know what Apple pays for chips.

    Samsung could clearly raise the price as they are single source today, however the design belongs to Apple, and it could be manufactured by TSMC or even AMD in a very short time if they decided to try to jack up the price significantly.
