Sources claim that the TSMC chip maker will remain the only Apple supplier of the A series processor. The series of processors that equip iPhone, iPad and iPod.
Last year, TSMC built all the A12 Bionic chips of the iPhone Xs, Xs MAX and Xr. That is why we expect the cooperation of both companies to continue for the iPhone models of 2019.
The new A13 processor will remain in the 7nm architecture but will be enhanced with EUV (Extreme Ultraviolet Lithography). Production is expected to begin in the second quarter of 2019 so everything will be ready for the launch and launch of the new flagship of the Coupertinos company next September.
The CEO of TSMC said in an interview that 25% of the company’s revenue comes from the 7nm processors that monopolize the market, yet it expects low growth in 2019 due to low demand for mobile phones.
