TSMC carries many years working with Apple in the production of its processors, creating them exactly as designed by Apple engineers. The Bionic A13 processor is manufactured with a 7 nm processor, but TSMC is already starting to manufacture the new A14 processor of the iPhone 12 than using a 5 nm process, so it should be more energy efficient and faster on equal terms .
