The manufacturer of mobile processorsApple, TSMC, would have started production of the 10 nanometer chip which will equip theiPhone 8. The Taiwanese founder has exclusively produced the A10 processor for the iPhone 7 and should also be the sole supplier of the A11 chip this year.
TSMC originally planned to start producing the chip in April to reach 50 million units in July. However, production was delayed due to problems with the 10 nanometer FinFET manufacturing process.
According to a new report by DigiTimes, the issues have been resolved. TSMC would therefore have launched the production of 10nm processors for the next Apple iPhone 8 series. For now, we do not yet have all the details about it, but it is certain that the processors will be faster. In addition to density, Apple chip designers will likely redefine components and circuits to optimize performance and energy efficiency.
Finally, all the rumors in recent weeks seem to indicate that the iPhone 8 will be a major upgrade from the iPhone 7. In addition to the glass and stainless steel chassis, a larger OLED screen with a built-in fingerprint sensor on the screen, a 3D front camera and wireless charging should be present.
