Apple may in 2024 and when the family launch iPhone 16 Have a small change in your strategy. In a new report, it is claimed that all the models that will be released in the next two years will have chips 3 nm They will be made by TSMC.
In its new report, the Economic Daily News website quoted Morgan Stanley as talking about TSMC’s 3nm chip development plans. In this report, it is said that this wafer manufacturer has reduced its advanced chip production capacity from 80,000 wafers to 60,000 wafers per month. However, this is a huge output, most of which will be used by Apple for the 2024 iPhone chips.
Different versions of TSMC chip for iPhone 16 phones
Earlier reports said that the tech giant plans to use TSMC’s 3nm chips for all iPhones in 2024, which could confuse most readers. To explain this, it should be said that TSMC is preparing several 3nm layers for customers like Apple, which are getting better version by version.
Assuming Apple still releases four new iPhone models that year, we can expect the cheaper iPhone 16 and 16 Plus to likely use a chip made by the first-generation 3nm process, and the Pro phones to use chips made by Use the efficient type of second generation TSMC process.
Additionally, Apple is rumored to be using TSMC’s second-generation 3nm process to mass-produce the M3 and A17 Bionic chips, and both chipsets are expected to launch next year. It is also possible that the Cupertino giant will reserve the new production process for the A18 Bionic, which will be launched in 2024.
Of course, in order to realize all these things, TSMC must be able to continue to produce its required monthly wafers and also not face obstacles to its production.
