As our long experience of work on AppleInsider.ru shows, the way to a new iPhone usually does not begin with the "specifications", prototypes or drawings of cases for a smartphone "leaked" into the Web. It all starts with information that Apple's manufacturing partner has begun manufacturing processors that will be used in the new iPhone.
So, the first step has already been made: the Chinese edition of the Economic Daily News reported that TSMC is ready to start production of the new A11 chip. The component will be produced on the 10-nanometer FinFET process, and a sufficient batch of chips will be ready by the September presentation of the novelty.
It is interesting that, according to Chinese sources, in 2017 it is planned to produce 100 million A11 chips, which is somewhat more than last year's A10 Fusion processors for the iPhone 7. Let's hope that such optimism of Apple will be justified.
There are no technical details about the new chip yet, but there is no doubt that it will be much more powerful and more efficient in terms of energy consumption than the current generation. Now you want to wait for September even stronger.
