As early as April this year, TSMC has started on the testing phase of the A13 production route, further indicating that the company's manufacturing calendar is unfolding as planned. Now a new report from Japanese blog Macotakara has surfaced online which claimed that Apple will replace the coral and blue iPhone XRs with green and lavender colors this. Here's what we know about this new chip. It's also planning other new types of chips, including a cellular modem for making calls and connecting to the internet, and power components based on a recent deal with Dialog Semiconductor Plc.
With Apple's focus on innovation, the A13 chip is expected to bring improvements to the performance of the next-generation iPhones. Assuming the veracity of the report, it would mean TSMC is a bit ahead of schedule, as it wasn't set to begin mass production with its second-generation 7nm process until June. The new high-end models are code-named D43 and D44, while the update to the iPhone XR is internally dubbed N104, they said.More news: Eden Hazard makes transfer claim amid Real Madrid rumours
The report adds that the third camera on the XS and XS Max sequels will have an ultra wide-angle lens for "larger and more detailed photos". This chip will be used in the 5.8-inch iPhone 11, 6.5-inch iPhone 11 Max and the next version of the iPhone XR.
First and foremost, the three 2019 iPhone models - successors to the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR - are said to look similar to the current models. It will also enable a broader range of zoom. The back camera arrays will reportedly be located within a square in the top left corner.More news: Supreme Court rules against Apple in lawsuit targeting App Store
The new and improved iPhone XR is being tipped to get an extra lens on its back, which would make it a dual-lens snapper.
That's not the only camera upgrade coming though: Apple is apparently working on an "auto-correction feature" to fit people back into a photo if they're accidentally cut out.More news: Thousands of People March for Palestine in London
