The 7nm-based Apple A12 processor expected to power those three next-gen iPhones in the fall has reportedly entered mass production at TSMC. Meanwhile, Samsung is getting close to manufacturing its own 7nm chip for 2019 flagship Androids.
The next-gen Apple A11X chip is expected to bring a slew of important improvements to the 2018 iPad Pro lineup, octa-core CPU included.
The third quarter wasn't bad, but it was down from a year ago. Still, there's plenty for the chipmaker to be eager about with the coming of the iPhone X.
Mum was always going to be the official word, but luckily, China's FCC equivalent is much more forthcoming about iPhone X battery and RAM details.
Geekbench tells us that multi-core scores on an iPhone 8 or iPhone X beat those of a Mid-2017 13-inch MacBook Pro. This, one analyst says, is ridiculous.
