According to Electronic Times of South Korea, has recently Apple has made a partnership with TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company) to produce chipsets for their latest smartphone, the iPhone 7. This of course makes Samsung will lose a big production because they are producing chipset for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Apple turned away from Samsung for TSMC currently has 10 nanometer technology.
Reportedly, Apple chipset which will most likely be named Apple A10 will be produced in full in June 2016. For the 10 nanometer technology itself, of course, will make Apple can invest more capacitors that would make it faster chipset and of course more power efficient. TSMC hopes that this chipset production will be accelerated in 2017.
As you well know, Apple is currently using the factory Samsung and TSMC to produce chipsets for the iPhone 6s. Some benchmarks stated that TSMC artificial A9 chipset proved to be more efficient batteries as compared to Samsung. In fact, Samsung uses 14 nm while still using the TSMC 16 nm. However, its performance is also closed to within about two to three percent.
iPhone 7 and 7 Plus is planned to be introduced in September 2016. Some of the features of both the devices began to leak on the internet. Reportedly, the iPhone 7 will have a feature waterproof, dual-lens camera, as well as the absence of 3,55 mm audio jack
