Apple is said to have ordered production of more than 100 million A15 Bionic chips for partner TSMC, mainly equipped on the upcoming iPhone 13.
According to a report by WCCF Tech, Apple's A15 Bionic chip orders this year increased by 20% compared to the A14 Bionic chip on the iPhone 12 series.
However, the source noted that not all of the chips will be for the iPhone 13, instead will be allocated to several other upcoming products, including the 6th-generation iPad mini and the 2022 iPhone SE.
Some rumors suggest that the A15 Bionic is manufactured on the 5 nm process with a total of six cores, including two high-performance cores and the remaining four cores focused on energy efficiency. This parameter is similar to last year's A14 Bionic chip.
However, the A15 Chips will be more improved in energy efficiency and performance compared to the A14 Bionic.
This is in line with the new specifications on the iPhone 13 when this smartphone is expected to be equipped with a 120 Hz refresh rate screen that consumes more power.
According to recent reports, the iPhone 13 will have small design changes compared to the iPhone 12, such as a smaller notch, a large camera cluster, and a diagonal camera layout in the iPhone 13 and 13 mini.
In addition to the latest A15 Bionic chip, the device is also equipped with RAM from 6 GB, upgraded battery capacity, 25W fast charging. The new smartphone will be announced in September according to the previous iPhone launch schedule instead of October like last year's iPhone 12.
