Here are your Apple Rumors for today:

apple-rumors-samsung-dram-a9-aaplAcquisition: Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) has reportedly acquired music software maker Camel Audio, reports MacRumors. The acquisition of the company was discovered when Camel Audio changed its address to 100 New Bridge Street. This is the address of Apple’s headquarters in London. Camel Audio officially stopped releasing its software in January. It was around this time that users of the software started to wonder about what had happened to it. It’s unknown what plans the tech company has for the audio software maker and it has refused to comment on the matter.

Pay: Visa (NYSE:V) has announced that the supporting payment structure in Europe needed for Apple Pay will be ready in April, 9to5Mac notes. The changes that are needed to support Pay in Europe include what kind of data in sent back and forth between a device and payment terminal. Current terminals require credit and debit card data to be sent from the device. However, Pay doesn’t send the actual credit and debit card numbers to the terminal. This is why an update is required, despite Visa not saying that it’s being done to make its terminals work with Pay.

Samsung: A new rumor claims that Samsung will be behind the DRAM in Apple’s upcoming A9 chip, reports AppleInsider. According to the rumor, Samsung will be responsible for providing at least half of the DRAM that will be used in the A9 chips. The rumor doesn’t say how much DRAM the A9 chips will have. The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus come quipped with 1GB of RAM and the iPad 2 has 2GB of RAM. Samsung has provided DRAM to Apple in the past, but the company has also gotten DRAM for its devices from other suppliers.
