It’s been just a few days since Apple announced its next-generation iPhone 12 models in the market and details about the next year’s smartphones have started making rounds.
The newly launched iPhone 12 models are powered by the Apple A14 Bionic chipset and now a new report has surfaced online which reveals what to expect from the next-generation Apple A15 Bionic chipset which will power the iPhone 13 models.
A report coming from China Times claims that the A15 Bionic will be manufactured using the N5P node by TSMC, which is among the three variants of 5nm node being developed by the Taiwanese manufacturer.
It also adds that the mass-production for the same could start in the third quarter of the upcoming year, i.e. Q3 2021. Apple has reportedly started working on the same to avoid any delays as the company had to delay the launch of this year’s iPhone models because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Recently, it was reported that TSMC’s facility for the production of 5nm chips has been fully booked by Apple and the reason for the preferential treatment is likely the fact that almost one-fifth of the company’s total revenue comes from the Cupertino-based tech giant.
This probably is the reason which led to Samsung getting orders from Qualcomm for the mass-production of the upcoming flagship chipset — Snapdragon 875, which is also being manufactured using a 5nm node.
While the Apple A15 Bionic chipset is expected to use the 5nm process, manufacturers like TSMC and Samsung have already started working on more advanced technologies, which includes a 3nm process and even a 2nm process, which will be ready for use in mass-production of chipsets in the coming years.
