Apple reportedly switching to iPhone modem design in 2023
Nov 25, 2021
New Delhi, Nov 25 (ANI): Apple is reportedly planning to partner with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. for the production of its own 5G modems for future iPhones. According to The Verge, Apple is said to be planning to use TSMC's 4nm process node, which hasn't yet been deployed for any commercial product; the modem is apparently being designed and tested at 5nm before moving to mass production in 2023 at 4nm. Apple's switch to modems of its own design is widely expected to happen in 2023, and TSMC is the natural manufacturing partner. 2022 iPhone SoCs will reportedly use TSMC's 4nm processor, and some iPad models are said to be adopting 3nm processors in 2023.
