According to a report published on DigiTimes, Apple commissioned TSMC to produce processors manufactured in a 4-nanometer process.
These chips will be intended both for subsequent Macs with proprietary Apple processors and for the next generation of iPhones. This does not mean, however, that both computers and smartphones will use the same processors. They will differ, among other things, in manufacturing technology.
Production of chips for the iPhone 13 is expected to start at the end of May, i.e. in about two months.
Serial production of the next generation of M processors is not expected to start until the fourth quarter of this year.
It is worth recalling that this year new models of Mac computers equipped with Apple Silicon processors are to appear on the market, but there is no indication that they will be based on 4-nanometer technology.
