iPhone 7 - A10 production begins in March 2016

iPhone 7 to be released by Apple in 2016 and today we find that partner TSMC will start a trial production round the next product in March next year to send Apple the first components for testing.



TSMC is expected to produce new A10 chip exclusively for Apple using a 16nm manufacturing process. The information is somewhat hard to believe since the current A10 chip is manufactured using a 14nm FinFET fabrication process, and he would be giving up a regret.

Although the iPhone will be officially launched in July only in the fall of 2016, TSMC will initiate the production process of image A10 in March, but only to convince those from Apple that meets their production requirements.

Currently, TSMC and Samsung produce A9 chip of the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, that while TSMC also produces chips for Apple A8 and A8X. Next year TSMC wants to become the only producer of chip A10, but it remains to be seen whether he will succeed.

Repel Samsung, TSMC has made Apple’s exclusive 16-nanometer manufacturing process A10 processor orders, mass production in March next year cast film, future revenues and profitability are expected to continue a record high. 

Samsung and TSMC are in constant "battle" to win orders from Apple for the production of chips for iDevice sites and iPhone 7 is the next "war".

To be honest, it's hard to believe that Apple will choose something other than a 14nm manufacturing process for the chip A10, but anything is possible when talking about Apple.
