The Apple iPhone 14 should be the first smartphone packed with powerful 3nm chips

December 23, 2020


A couple of days ago we told you that Apple has already reserved 80% of TSMC’s 5nm production for 2021. The 5nm process node is the most cutting-edge in chip manufacturing at the moment and the technology allows 11.8 billion transistors to be placed inside Apple’s A14 Bionic chipset. That compares to the 8.5 billion transistors inside the A13 Bionic SoC which was produced using the 7nm process. With a transistor density of 134 million per square mm compare to the nearly 90mm transistors per square mm “sardined” inside its predecessor, the A14 Bionic provides improved performance and energy-conservation compared to the A13 Bionic. The latter is the chip that powers the 5G iPhone 12 series.
