Apple orders 3nm chips from TSMC

This year, Apple was one of the first companies to launch a 5nm chipset in the form of the Apple A14 Bionic. The chipset has entered the iPhone 12 series and offers additional performance at a low energy cost. Now, Android OEMs are about to start their adventure in the 5nm era thanks to Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, Exynos 2100 and 1080 chips which also carry the same architecture.

Meanwhile, Apple appears to be working on the next big thing: 3nm. According to a new report, the Cupertino giant has already secured a good chunk of orders for the production of 3nm chips in 2022. We probably won’t see the first 3nm chip next year, but it sure will be something in the future . 2022 and 2023. According to sources familiar with the matter, Apple’s upcoming 3nm chipsets will power future iPads and MacBooks.

While it doesn’t mention iPhones, we don’t see a reason why the company won’t create a 3nm Bionic chip for its iPhones in the future. the iPhone Series 14 (provisional) will likely bring the new standard in chipsets.

While the rumor says about the M-series chips in the MacBook and iPad, it’s probably safe to assume that iPhones in 2022 will likely use the same technology.
