Apple’s new iPhones to use smaller and faster ‘A12’ chips

Apple is also trying to get ahead of 7-nanometer designs from Qualcomm, the biggest maker of mobile phone chips.

Neighbourhood Technology Desk: Apple manufacturing partner Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing has started mass production of next-generation processors for new iPhones launching later this year, according to people familiar with the matter.

Processor, likely to be called the A12 chip, will use a 7-nanometer design that can be smaller, faster and more efficient than the 10-nanometer chips in current Apple devices like the iPhone 8 and iPhone X. Apple plans to launch at least a trio of new iPhones this fall, including a larger version of the iPhone X’s design, an update to the current iPhone X size, and a lower-cost model with many of the iPhone X’s features but with a cheaper LCD screen.
