Apple A16 Chips will be launched in 2022 with TSMC’s 3nm process

The Taiwanese Semi-Conductor Manufacturer company TSMC will manufacture Apple’s upcoming A16 chips on its 3nm process. According to the company, they are on schedule with the A16 chips and will reveal them in the year 2022. If you don’t know, these upcoming A16 chips will be in use for the iPhones and iPads.

Currently, the TSMC is working on the development of the A16 chips. They are working to take the processing nodes to even smaller levels. As per its guideline, the exploration into the 3nm fabrication is ongoing, and the mass production will achieve within the next two years. Also, the construction of the production lines and associated facilities have already started for the new 3nm process.

Furthermore, a new report states that the 3nm process will undergo a trial risk production phase in somewhere around 2021. Not only that, but the mass production capacity will also be undertaken within the second half of the year 2022. Judging by the timeline, the production phase will closely align with Apple’s 2022 iPhone series launch, which will also occur simultaneously.

However, presently TSMC’s 5nm process is already perceiving full production, and the company is already working on producing an enhanced version of the same process. Also, the Taiwanese company has invested $12 billion in its new plant in Arizona, US. So, we can hope to see Apple placing local orders, although it is still ambiguous.
