• This year's iPhones will have a component like no other smartphone

    3 monthes ago - By TheBoyGeniusReport

    Apple this year will release up to four new iPhones, three of which are expected to arrive this fall, at Apple's usual September event. Reports say Apple is bringing to market three iPhone X successors later this year, including two devices with OLED screens and one handset with an LCD panel. The fourth, of course, is the rumored iPhone SE second generation.
    All three iPhones are expected to offer users the same type of performance, therefore almost the same set of specs. And Apple's 2018 iPhones will have no rival when it comes to one key feature.

    Apple starts manufacturing its 7nm A12 chips

    3 monthes ago - By GSMArena

    Samsung and TSMC have been Apple's suppliers of chips for their iPhones for years now, but the latest report suggests that this year's 7nm A12 Apple chips will only come from TSMC. This is because the Korean giant will only be able to achieve scale production of 7nm SoCs in the second half of the year, at which point it might be too late.
    As we all know, new iPhones are released in September and according to Bloomberg, this year's chip production has already started at TSMC's plants. They will be ready just in time for the rumored iPhone X update, the Plus-sized model and the...

    Apple has signed up with TSMC to produce the next generation of chipsets that will go on to power the iPhone 9, Xs and Xs Plus this year. The silicon doesn't have an official name yet, but following Apple's naming scheme, it will likely be called the A12. It will be built on a 7-nanometer process and is expected to be the first of its kind to land in a smartphone when it launches on 2018 iPhone models this fall.
    According to inside sources, cited by Bloomberg, the A12 chipset has just recently entered mass-production. The next generation silicon ...

  • New iPhones are go: Apple starts production for new 7nm A12 chips

    3 monthes ago - By Pocket-lint

    Apple has reportedly started production on its next-generation mobile processors, expected to be called A12. The new chips will drive the forthcoming 2018 iPhone models and, most likely, new iPad Pro tablets too. "People familiar with the matter" told Bloomberg's Mark Gurman that the new chips will use a 7nm design, so can be smaller while remaining faster than the 10nm A11 Bionic CPU in current Apple flagship devices. Gurman's sources asked to remain anonymous due to the sensitive nature of the information. The chips are being made by Apple supplier Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co...
