Apple’s next generation of its A processors, the A11, has shown up in newly leaked images suggesting the iPhone production line has kicked into high gear.
The new A11 processor is expected to be used in all of Apple’s phones this year – iPhone 7S, iPhone 7S Plus and iPhone 8 – and should lead to some significant boosts in performance.
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) was awarded the exclusive production rights to this year’s processor due to its 10-nanometer FinFET manufacturing process. This new production process will make the chip capable of increased performance and better battery management which should translate into your phone holding a charge for longer periods of time.
While images of a chip aren’t exciting in and of themselves, it’s what they suggest that is the most promising. If major components such as the A11 are beginning to leak out, it means that the rumors of the iPhone being in full production mode should be correct and everything is on course for the annual fall debut.
No announcement date has been released yet, but if Apple follows tradition, we should see the iPhone 7S, iPhone 7S Plus and iPhone 8 make their debuts sometime in the first half of September.
