The next Iphone 15 series by Apple is now slowly gaining the talk of the upcoming market. After the latest release of the A16 chipset which was for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Now we look forward to the next-gen chipset. It seems like the A17 chip might focus on battery-life improvements than processing power.
A17 Bionic chips
A statement that came from TSMC’s chairman, reveals that the A17 Bionic chips for iPhone 15 series may prioritize battery life over processing power. He was asked about the company’s 3nm chips coming next year.
TSMC, the world’s largest chip foundry is about to kick off mass production of cutting-edge chips using its 3nm process node. The next-gen A17 chip will use the TSMC’s enhanced 3nm process node, the production began a few days ago.
To celebrate the start of mass production of 3nm chips, the company held a ceremony a few days ago. And today, TSMC’s chairman Mark Liu revealed impressive efficiency improvement figures resulting from the new process. Liu, in a statement given to Bloomberg, said the 3nm processes offer better performance than the 5nm chips while requiring about 35% less power.

SMC is expected to start mass production of components using the 3nm process node before the A17 Bionic finds its way into the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Ultra. Apple might place its 3nm M2 Pro chip into the MacBook Pro and the Mac Mini.
TSMC also announced earlier this month that it will produce some 3nm chips at a second fab it is building in Arizona. Apple CEO Tim Cook said that the company will buy an undisclosed amount of those components.
However, let’s see what apple has to say about the chip performance and how affects the iPhone 15 series.
