Apple's A11 Processor For Next-Generation iPhones, Especially iPhone 8, Has Entered Production [VIDEO]
Apple's A11 processors for this year's iPhones have entered production. This is a good news for Apple enthusiasts who are hoping for the upcoming iPhones, particularly the iPhone 8, to launch on time despite the previous issues with the manufacturer of the 10nm chip.
The Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company has started the production of Apple's A11 processor. Some reports are claiming that TSMC started producing the A11 chips in April, and would manufacture 50 million units by July. The A11 processor is anticipated to be the one to power Apple's first OLED handset, which is said to be called as iPhone 8, Digi Times reported.
The new 10nm chip could also be the same processor that the Cupertino based tech giant will be using for the iPhone 7s and the iPhone 7s Plus. Some reports even claimed that Apple would use the A11 processor for the said iPad refreshes this year.
Nonetheless, aside that TSMC has started the production of Apple's A11 processor, Apple's suppliers, such as Kinsus Interconnect Technology, Zhen Ding Technology, and Simplo Technology (battery supplier), are ready to ramp up related iPhone parts by next month. Foxconn Electronics, along with Winstron and Pegatron were reportedly increasing the recruitment of new workers in China in preparation of new iPhone's mass production, Daily Mail reported.
In spite of that, it is not surprising that the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) is the sole manufacturer of Apple's A11 chips for the upcoming iPhones. The TSMC was also the one that made the A10 chips found on Apple's iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus smartphones from last year.
The success of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus smartphones cannot be ignored. Apple shipped 21.5 million iPhone 7 units, while 17.4 million iPhone 7 Plus were shipped in early 2017, Apple Insider reported.
