Surprising no one, it turns out that the next-generation iPhone will put an even bigger performance gap between itself and the rest of the industry, as TSMC begins mass production of powerful 7-nanometer A12 chips for use in Appleâ€™s next-generation iPhones.
Smaller is better
TSMC announced volume production of 7-nanometer chips in April 2018 but did not say who it was producing these processors for. BloombergÂ claims those chips are Appleâ€™s.
Why does this matter?
Itâ€™s like this â€” a nanometer is one billionth of a meter. In chip design, it represents the distance between the transistors that comprise the processor.
