The new Director TMS is the only manufacturer of processors for the iPhone, spoke about the company’s plans and about the increase in production capacity, says DigiTimes.
At a technology forum in Hsinchu, Director of TMSC C. C. Wei said that the company plans to introduce production line for 5 nm processors in late 2019 or early 2020. For this TMSC invests $ 25 billion.
The main customer is Apple TMSC. The company has already started to collect 7 nm processors A12 for iPhone 2018. But due to the fact that the launch of 5 nm processors postponed to the end of 2019, most likely, next year the iPhone will retain chip architecture 7 nm and the same energy efficiency. Probably in 2019 the iPhone will be used A12X processors with increased power.
Earlier there were rumors that Samsung will be the second manufacturer of processors for iPhone 2018, in addition to the TMSC. But DigiTimes has denied these assumptions. TMSC is the only manufacturer of Apple chips A10 and A11.
