Apple’s iPhone 7 A10 Processors Could Be Made By TSMC Only
The Apple A9 processor in the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus is made by Samsung and TSMC and now according to a recent report, TSMC could score a deal with Apple to build all of the new A10 chips for the iPhone 7.
Since the release of the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, we have seen a couple of videos showing a difference in performance between the two different A9 processors on the new handsets.
Apple even released a statement saying that there is no real difference in performance with regards to battery life on the two processors in their new smartphones.
The performance difference between the two different A9 processors produced by Samsung and TSMC is apparently the reason that Apple has chosen to go exclusively with TSMC for the new A10 processor in next years iPhone 7 and 7 Plus smartphones.
Whether TSMC will be able to produce enough chips for Apple to keep up with demand for next years iPhones remains to be seen, this is the reason that Apple uses two suppliers for the processors for the current models.
