Apple is apparently gearing up to unleash 100 million iPhone 13 handsets
Although many tech (and even non-tech) brands are pushing prices up these days, Apple has big plans for the upcoming smartphone lineup that should arrive in less than two months. According to insiders familiar with the matter, the iconic tech brand has placed a massive order of over 100 million A15 Bionic chips to use in the next-gen iPhones.
While the number above does not say much alone, we should keep in mind that the 2020 iPhone lineup had an initial production run of 75 million units, so Apple is planning to bump up last year's figure by over 33 percent.
The A15 Bionic chip, manufactured by TSMC, uses the same 5 nm technology as the existing A14 Bionic, which powers the iPad Air and iPhone 12 models currently available on the market. The new chips will have a refined design capable of providing better performance and increased power efficiency.
In addition to the details mentioned by older rumors, the latest report mentioned earlier also claims that the A15 Bionic will feature the same CPU layout as the A14, with four high-efficiency cores and two high-performance ones.
The high-end iPhone 13 models will allegedly sport a ProMotion 120 Hz display with always-on capabilities, larger batteries, and cameras with sensor-shifting stabilization. If the rumors turn into reality, Apple should have them in stores before the end of September.
