Apple Rolls Out Its Most Advanced Chip Yet Using 5-nm Technology

Apple introduced what it called its most advanced processor yet, a custom-designed mobile chip based on the 5-nm node that will power its upcoming generation of hardware, including its iPhone.

Apple said the latest generation of processors, the A14 Bionic, is based on 5-nm technology from TSMC, the world’s most advanced IC production process, packing smaller and more power-efficient components into the system-on-chip (SoC). Apple said the new chip pumps out more performance by integrating 11.8 billion transistors on the silicon die, a generational leap of around 40% compared to the A13, which incorporates 8.5 billion, and the A12, which packs 6.9 billion.

The Cupertino, California-based company unveiled the mobile chip in a virtual product event from its headquarters, where it introduced a new smartwatch and its latest generation of iPads. Apple said it would roll out the speedy processor in the latest iPad Air, which is positioned at the
