A new rumor has surfaced about the iPhone 7 and the 7 Plus. The rumor derived from China Times via AppleInsider, who noted that TSMC will start using a “16-nanometer process.” The chip is said to use InFO (integrated fan out) design, which will offer advantages like cutting costs and making manufacturing much easier.
A new report comes in from a trusted source, which notes that both Samsung and TSMC have 14 and 16-nanometer FinFET capacity ready for the A9 processor. Samsung has reportedly agreed to Apple’s demands, and went as far to provide nearly free backend services for the chips, hoping to become Apple’s first choice.
Many manufacturers will try their hardest to produce the smallest and the most efficient mobile processors, with that said, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. announced that a 10-nanometer FinFET chip will be on schedule around early 2017, this was reported this week by TSMC.
