Next Upcoming iPhones Will Include 5nm Chip and 5G: Apple’s Resources
Talking about the Apple news according to recent reports, Apple’s A12 Bionic chip was used in its flagship iPhones back in 2018, and A13 chip will also be based on same 7nm architecture, as rumor states. Means, A12 chip will again be supplied by TSMC like A12, but Apple is planning to introduce 5nm manufacturing process based chip in next upcoming iPhones in 2020.
This news actually originated from Courtesy of DigiTimes, and even this can be considered as true because TSMC has confirmed its investments plans of $25 billion to produce 5nm chips for new iPhones coming next year 2020.
5nm Chip And 5G In iPhones
Experts assume that smaller die size will actually allow greater number of resistors to be present on the core. This will significantly lower down power consumption and deliver higher clock speeds. This all means that overall iPhone usage and its performance will be improved.
Thus, Apple’s decision to shrink the die size will obviously help the company to get an edge over its rivals. Actually, this is precisely a reason which has kept its 2018 chhipset named A12, really ahead of the competition in performance based terms.
However, talking about 5G network adoption, Apple will not adopt this technology soon. Even Intel has confirmed that its 5G chipset will be available in mainstream only in 2020 onward. Thus, it’s quite obvious that Apple will remain vulnerable in 2019 in terms of 5G technology competition. However, Samsung has recently launched a 5G version of its flagship smartphone called Samsung Galaxy S10.
Apart from Samsung, Nokia even has tied up with MediaTek and tested 5G successfully for its Helio M70 modem chip. Here comes a report on this matter:
“Intel Corp executives said on Friday its 5G modem chips will not appear in mobile phones until 2020, raising the possibility its biggest customer, Apple Inc, will be more than a year behind rivals in delivering a device that uses the faster networks”
Looking through the history of Apple for its iPhone modems, the company has been relying on Intel since a long time. Also, the company is limited as well while the matter comes about buying 5G technology because it has on no goo terms with other popular chipset or processor manufacturer Qualcomm, and the feud is even active till the date.
So, the rumors about Apple to have its 2020 iPhones will support 5G seems to be true.
