According to Taiwanese media reports, TSMC will mass-produce the 5-nanometer A14 processor for Apple’s next-generation smartphone iPhone 12 in April this year.

The production of A-series chips usually starts from April to May, so this means that TSMC’s mass production of the A14 processor is on schedule and has not been affected by other factors.

TSMC has been the exclusive supplier of Apple’s “A-series” processors since 2016. Among them, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are equipped with the A10 processor, which uses a 16-nanometer process. The A11 processor in the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X uses a 10-nanometer process.

The 2018 A12 processor uses a 7-nanometer process, while last year’s A13 processor uses a 7-nanometer process + extreme ultraviolet lithography process. This year, TSMC will use 5nm technology to produce the A14 processor.

Last year, TSMC announced a $25 billion investment in 5-nanometer manufacturing technology to remain the exclusive supplier of its “A-series” processors.

According to well-known Apple analyst Mingqi Guo, Apple will release four iPhone 12 models that support the 5G standard this fall, including a 5.4-inch iPhone, two 6.1-inch models, and a 6.7-inch model. model.

In addition, Apple is likely to release a new low-end model iPhone SE2 in the first half of this year, but this product is likely to use the A13 processor.
