Apple will use a 5nm + A15 chip for the 2021 iPhones and TrendForce believes it is very likely that the A16 chip in the 2022 iPhones will be produced based on TSMC’s future 4nm process, suggesting that the new 3nm technology will likely be used for a potential chip. A17 and potentially other future Macs Apple silicon if the …
