Apple supplier TSMC has reportedly started production of the processor for the upcoming iPhone, which would be called A15.

New supply chain reports claim processor maker TSMC has started production of the “iPhone 13” line. This is likely to be mass production ahead of the planned launch in September 2021, but this is unconfirmed.

According to Digitimes, at least initial production has started, and the new “A15” processor is expected to be manufactured in higher volumes than the A14 Bionic from the iPhone 12 line.

“TSMC has started production of Apple’s next-generation iPhone processor called the A15,” Digitimes reports, “and will see demand for the chip exceed that of its predecessor last year, according to industry sources.”

Digitimes has a poor track record of predicting Apple devices based on the information it receives, but a much stronger track record of having reliable, well-located sources. In this case, Apple is sure to release an “iPhone 13”, so the only issues will be resolved when mass production begins and how big the volume will be.

TSMC’s initial production reports are now in line with an earlier prediction by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. In December 2020, he reported on TSMC’s plans to cut production on its iPhone 12 processor and suggested that it might be in the works for the switch to “iPhone 13”.

The production of the iPhone 12 range has been delayed by the coronavirus. The entry into production of “A15” may be a sign that launch times are returning to normal.

The “iPhone 13” range should feature a smaller notch for Face ID than today. It was also reported that the chassis will be extremely thick and feature a significantly larger camera bulge.
