Latest reports claim that Apple is planning to use TSMC’s 4nm process nod, which has not been used for any commercial project till now. It is being designed and tested at 5nm before being moved to a 4nm process in 2023. Thence it would be scaled further.

This was recently prophesied by Qualcomm (which currently provides modem components for the entire iPhone 13 lineup). The chipmaker claimed that it expects to account for just 20% of the iPhone modem orders in 2 years.

Apple with TSMC

Apple took over Intel’s 5G modem division in 2019, which indicated their intention. Earlier that year, Qualcomm and Apple agreed to end a costly modem technology patent dispute, with the former receiving more than 4 billion dollars (Rs. 29,750 crores) as a part of the settlement.
