Taiwanese semiconductor giant is shipping chips to Apple for inclusion in the upcoming iPhone, according to the Wall Street Journal. Previously, Samsung was the Apple’s sole iOS semiconductor partner.
Apple will focus on Mac OS X at its upcoming developer’s conference on June 2, according to a new report.
Apple is touting its new A7 chip and M7 co-processor in the iPhone 5s but where the heck is the M7? A teardown didn’t find the chip, indicating it may be a different company’s digital signal processor.
Apple’s two new chips inside the iPhone 5s are not exactly necessary for the phone, but are excellent indicators of where Apple wants to go next.
Reports suggest Apple is testing a new chip design for the next iPhone. That’s not surprising by itself, but the silicon is rumored to be 64-bit compatible and use a second chip specifically for motion tracking.
