Apple iPhone 8 To Feature TSMC’s 7nm Process; Supply Chain Rumor
We know that the Apple iPhone 7 just came out and it is pretty early to talk about the upcoming Apple iPhone 8 as it will be at least a year away from now. But word has it that the Apple iPhone 8 will feature TSMC’s 7nm process. We have seen some upgrades both in terms of iOS products and Android smartphone. Though I have to say that Apple is still lagging behind.
Samsung introduced the iris scanner in their new Note 7. Although the phone was not a success for explosive reasons, it is still the first phablet to have the feature on board. Hence we expect that the upcoming Apple iPhone 8 will have plenty of catching up to do. Now when it comes to the iPhone 7, the upgrades were fine to last the year but Apple should bring something major to the Apple iPhone 8 or the charm of the device is going to fade away.
Sources indicate that Apple is going to jump to TSMC’s 7nm process when it comes to the iPhone 8. This would bring some performance upgrades and will save battery life which is a huge issue when it comes to iPhones. While the iPhone’s battery has improved after the iPhone 5 I have to say that as compared to Android Apple is still not meeting the mark.
Rumors suggest that Apple is working on an edge to edge display for the new Apple iPhone 8. We could also see wireless charging somewhere down the line as well as it has become pretty common amongst other brands.
It is safe to say that Apple is pretty far behind its time, even though the I in iPhone is supposed to be a constant reminder of innovation. We have yet to see that innovation in the so-called redesign of the iPhone 7.
What do you think the Apple iPhone 8 will be like?
