Apple's A17 and M3 chip production could be affected as TSMC scales down 3nm chip production amid delays from Intel. Here are the details on this.
Apple supplier TSMC is on track for 3nm chip production by the year's end. Here are all the details on this.
Just as had been expected, it appears TSMC will again be the company to produce Apple's A-series chips for this year's rounds of iPhones. Here are the details.
According to a new report, Apple has picked TSMC over Samsung as the sole manufacturer for iPhone 7 A10 processors. Here are the details.
Tests on iPhone 6s conducted by Consumer Reports show a negligible 1-2% difference between battery life of the Samsung and TSMC A9, dismissing the "chipgate" issue.
Apple has finally broken its silence and responded to ongoing Chipgate controversy surrounding its use of A9 chips from two different manufacturers, TSMC and Samsung, in iPhone 6s / 6s Plus, and their difference in performance.
A couple new videos compare the Samsung vs TSMC iPhone 6s A9 chips against one another in real-world usage scenarios, showing one performs better than the other, particularly when it comes to battery statistics.
Much fuss has been made of Apple's supposed move from Samsung to TSMC chips for its future iOS devices, with a deal having recently been struck just recently seemingly confirming this to be the case from 2014. With this in mind, you would expect the Apple A9 chips, which wouldn't theoretically make their way to market until 2015, to be produced by TSMC, right? Wrong. Reports are now suggesting that Apple's attempt to move away from Samsung as a primary manufacturing partner is failing miserably, with the South Korean company's expert knowledge of the field once again giving it the green light on the A9.
In the technology blogosphere, anything to do with Apple and Samsung rivalry gains an extra spice almost instantly, even if it’s something as indirect as Apple’s microprocessor deal with the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) for the preparation of the Cupertino giant’s sophisticated microprocessor chips being used in the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Yes, after almost 3 years, Apple has finally managed to sign a deal with TSMC for the SoCs used in its iDevice lineup, resulting in the former moving away from relying on Samsung for the processor component.
