Apple is all set to start mass-producing its upcoming A15 Bionic chipset. The chipset will likely be used in the forthcoming iPhone 13 lineup. Now a report from DigiTimes claims that famous chip manufacturers (TSMC?) have recently received many A15 chip orders from Apple. The mass production plan of the A15 chip by TSMC has been already prepared.
It is reported that the A15 chip will be manufactured using the N5P process (the second generation of the 5nm node). The performance of the process level has also increased while the power consumption is reduced. We could see at least 20% higher than the A14 Bionic chip. The efficiency is also said to increase by up to 30%.
The report further suggests that iPhone 13 lineup will be the first to use the A15 chip. Additionally, the upcoming iPhone 13 will be upgraded to a small notch screen for the selfie camera this year. This is the first time Apple plans to bring a positive appearance change in four years.
Apple will likely launch the iPhone 13 series in September this year. Several reports suggest that the iPhone 13 mini will feature a 5.4-inch panel, while the iPhone 13 and 13 Pro will likely arrive with a 6.1-inch display. The top-end iPhone 13 Pro Max model sport a 6.7-inch extensive collection. In addition, the Pro models will also come with a 120Hz refresh rate and LTPO panel.
Recently, the Russian EEC authority revealed the iPhone 13 series model numbers. The A2660 model will likely carry iPhone 13 mini moniker, which also appeared on 3C certification with a 2406 mAh rated battery capacity. The A2656 and A2653 models will probably be called iPhone 13 and 13 Pro Max, respectively. These two models are listed on the 3C certification website with a 3095 mAh and a 4352 mAh rated battery.
