TSMC starts manufacturing A13 chips for 2019 iPhones

Apple manufacturer, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, has started production of a new chip for Apple’s 2019 iPhones launching later this year, reports Bloomberg, quoting unnamed “people familiar with the matter.”

The processor, dubbed A13, went into early test production in April and mass-production is planned for as early as this month, the article adds. TSMC has developed a 5-nanometer design infrastructure that could be used to design future A-series chips and other processors. 

Of course, processor upgrades almost always give us better performance and efficiency. Expect the 2019 iPhones to be unveiled in September or October.
