Apple Starts Manufacturing Its 7nm A12 Chips
7nm A12 Chip By Apple: Apple iPhones are the most popular and sold smartphones of the current era. Millions of iPhone lovers preorder iPhones even before they are launched. Incredible design, latest specifications, and powerful hardware have contributed a lot towards iPhone’s success.
It is a known fact that Apple does not produce its own chips. However, it buys its chips from Samsung and TSMC. Both of these companies have been providing chips to Apple for almost a decade now. But, things are about to change now. Latest sources have confirmed that TSMC will be only providing Apple with 7nm A12 Apple chips. Samsung’s capacity to produce 7nm SoCs will be possible in the second half of this year. However, until then it will be too late for Samsung to deliver the chips.
