The Apple A15 Bionic chipset was introduced with the iPhone 13 series, and it is a powerful and energy-efficient chipset. The all-new Apple A16 Bionic chipsets are slated to debut in the iPhone 14 series next year. As usual, the firm will make a few tweaks here and there. We’ve produced this article based on leaks and rumours about the forthcoming chipset that have already surfaced on the internet. We will keep updating the post on a regular basis so that you don’t miss anything new.
Apple A16 Bionic Specifications
Some of the rumours tell that Apple might skip the 4nm fabrication process and directly introduce 3nm fabrication technology in their Apple A16 Bionic chipset. Apple has been stuck to the 5nm fabrication process for the last two years. But, TSMC, the company which’s fabrication process is going to use in the upcoming chipset, has said that they’re facing some problems with the 3nm based chipsets. They are struggling in manufacturing it. So, Apple might have to stick with the 5nm fabrication process again.
However, nothing is certain at this point, and there is still plenty of time before the formal launch. So, assuming TSMC has resolved its manufacturing issues by then, we may expect the Apple A16 Bionic chipset to be built on a 3nm fabrication process; otherwise, 5nm chipsets would be used. Furthermore, some sources claim that the chipset will be manufactured using a 4nm technology. The MediaTek Dimensity 9000 also employs TSMC’s 4nm fabrication process, which is more energy-efficient than Samsung’s.
Summing it up, we don’t have much information about the processor’s specifications yet. We will update the post as soon as we get any hint or leak about the same.
