The Taiwan Semiconductor Manufactoring Company (TSMC) is the major partner of Apple in the manufacture of the company's chips: for many years, it is she who produces much of the processor series "A" fitted all iPads, iPhones and Apple TVs. Now, apparently, this partnership will get even deeper.

The report states that TSMC will manufacture 5nm chips for the “iPhones 12” , the Для просмотра ссылки Войди или Зарегистрируйся , a future iPad Pro with 5G and all future MacBooks and iMacs equipped with Apple Silicon.
