TSMC Expected To Be Exclusive Manufacturer For Apple's A13 Chip

TSMC Expected To Be Exclusive Manufacturer For Apple's A13 Chip

6 days ago   |   By Ubergizmo

For the past few iPhone and iPad generations, TSMC has been pretty much the exclusive manufacturer of Apple's A-series chips. Before that TSMC and Samsung shared production orders, and even earlier than that Samsung held the exclusivity, although the lawsuit with Apple and also TSMC's advancement in the manufacturing process eventually edged them out. Now there have been reports claiming that Samsung is trying to win back orders for 2019's A13 chipsets, but if a report from DigiTimes is to be believed, that might no longer be happening. According to the report, it appears that TSMC could...

Apple iPhone XS Review Addendum: Small Core and NN Performance

Apple has been firing on all cylinders recently with its CPU chip design; Apple's A12 chip continued this trend and allows for the iPhone XS to easily outstrip the competition on speed tests and benchmarks. Of course, whilst Apple designs these chips in-house it does not manufacture them. That responsibility lies on TSMC's shoulders. TSMC has been the exclusive manufacturer for Apple's chips since the A10 chip in 2016.
According to Digitimes , that trend is set to continue with the next generation of processors which will power the fall 2019 iPhones. Apple has publicly praised TSMC for...
