However, TSMC has encountered difficulties in the process of updating from 5nm to 3nm, which will make it difficult for Apple to improve the performance of its next products.
According to Information’s analysis of Apple’s previous chips, the result of TSMC’s troubles is thatiPhoneThe processor will be stuck in the same chip manufacturing process for 3 consecutive years (including 2022), which is the first time in Apple’s history. This is also likely to cause some customers to postpone the annual upgrade of equipment, allowing Apple’s competitors to have more time to catch up.
