TSMC, an Apple supplier, reportedly started production of the A15 Bionic Chip for the iPhone 13
According to a new paywalled report from DigiTimes, longstanding Apple supplier TSMC has now officially begun off production of Apple’s next A15 chip for the iPhone 13 lineup, expected later in the second half of this year.
The A14 Bionic chip, first seen in the iPad Air and later in the iPhone 12, was the first Apple Processor to be manufactured utilizing the 5nm process. The A15 Bionic chip will continue to be based on the smaller process but will employ an updated version, which should result in increased performance and power efficiency.
Following the delayed launch of the iPhone 12 due to the worldwide health crisis, the iPhone 13 is likely to be introduced as early as September, as in previous years. As a result of the lockdowns last year,
Apple and its suppliers were forced to reduce production, pushing the yearly release of the new iPhone to October, a month later than usual. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, on the other hand, feels that a similar situation is unlikely to occur this year.
The iPhone 13 series is expected to include a number of new features in addition to the A15 Bionic chip’s better performance, graphics, and power efficiency. The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, the lineup’s higher-end versions, are rumored to include an LTPO display with a faster 120Hz refresh rate. With the addition of LTPO displays, the idea of having an always-on display is now possible.
