It seems that the tech giant Apple has already in production the next iPhone (which can come in three models) that will be presented in September this year. As, according to the latest reports, TSMC, the tech giant Apple partner to manufacture the Apple SoC, is already producing the new 7nm chip that will have the name of A12.
iPhone X2: TSMC Starts Production Of 7nm A12 Chips For Next-Gen iPhones
The tech giant Apple has already in production the next iPhone (which can come in three models) that will be presented in September this year.
The Bloomberg made known recently, that TSMC, the tech giant Apple partner to manufacture the Apple SoC, is already producing the new chip that will have the name of A12. The relevant news is the technology used.
TSMC wants to start at pole position at 7 nanometers
The published information explains that the A12 will use a 7-nanometer design that is faster, smaller and more efficient than the 10-nanometer chips used by Apple in today’s iPhone 8 and iPhone X.
Switching to a 7-nanometer processor will allow for better performance, while also increasing efficiency and conserving internal space.
This information, according to the same publication, was brought by people familiar with the production of the new chip, although Apple and TSMC refused to comment on this.
TSMC previously said it started mass production of 7-nanometer processors but did not say to whom the processors were to be produced.
Analysts’ comments understand this position of both companies as an attempt to gain an advantage over Qualcomm’s 7-nanometer chips. This issue is gaining ground due to the involvement of Apple and Qualcomm in a court battle.
TSMC’s SoC production for the 2018 iPhones seems to be on schedule. Last year, the company also started mass production of the A11 chip in May.
Today’s report also reiterates that Apple will release “at least a trio of new iPhones this fall.” One is considered a larger version of the iPhone X as well as a low-cost model with an LCD screen. The company will also be planning an updated version of the iPhone X.
