iPhone 15 hasn’t even come out yet, and there’s already news about iPhone 16
Apple supply chain analyst Jeff Pugh predicts chipset upgrades for the company’s next generation of smartphones.
According to him, the entire iPhone 16 line will be equipped with processors labeled A18 and A18 Pro, manufactured by TSMC using the second-generation 3 nm process technology.
The base models’ upgrade to the A18 will be a significant step up from the current A16 Bionic. This is quite possibly due to the fact that the iPhone 15 Pro this year has a specific N3b technical process, which will not be available next year.
Instead, the N3E technical process will be advanced – against the background of the current N3b, this will be another step forward, albeit a rather small one.
Of course, there is still a year before the premiere of iPhone 16, so Apple may change the processor labeling, but there will definitely be an update to the chipsets. But which chipset – Apple A17 or Apple A18 – only time will tell.
