TIME.CO, Jakarta – Apple launched training iPhone15 some time ago. This year’s Apple mobile phone series includes four types, viz iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max.
iPhone 15 e iPhone 15 Plus powered by the A16 Bionic chipset used in last year’s iPhone 14 Pro models. Meanwhile, the iPhone 15 Pro model uses the latest A17 Pro chipset based on TSMC’s 3nm node.
Not long after the euphoria of the launch of the most anticipated mobile phone series, rumors about the iPhone 16 line were already ringing. According to reports MacRumorsApple supply chain analyst Jeff Pu says all four iPhone 16 models will feature the A18 chip.
“We view the A17 Pro as a transitional design and now expect all iPhone 16 models to feature the A18, in the N3E TSM,” Pu said in a research note from investment firm Haitong International Securities published this week.
Pu also revealed the specific chipset that should be present on each iPhone 16 model, namely:
- iPhone 16: A18 (N3E) chip
- iPhone 16 Plus: A18 (N3E) chip
- iPhone 16 Pro: A18 Pro (N3E) chip
- iPhone 16 Pro Max: A18 Pro (N3E) chip
Quoted from Gadgets now, N3E refers to TSMC’s second-generation 3nm chip manufacturing process. The new process is cheaper and produces better results than the company’s first-generation 3nm process, N3B. The N3B process is used for the A17 Pro chip in the iPhone 15 Pro models.
As mentioned above, the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus come with the A16 Bionic chip. The 3nm-based A18 chip in the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus models will be a major upgrade.
Rank iPhone16 will launch in about a year, and Pu predicted the chipset’s marketing name. However, it remains to be seen whether or not Apple will use the A18 and A18 Pro branding. Just like this year’s chipset, the iPhone maker may also call its iPhone 16 chips A17 and A18 Pro.
