Report Claims 10nm iPhone 8 Chip Production is Running Smoothly

At least one roadblock delaying iPhone 8 production has seemingly been solved

With the hoards of rumors flying around about the iPhone 8 it's impossible for us to know when the phone will launch and if it's delayed or not. One of the previous rumors pointing to significant delays claimed that part of the delay was an issue producing the chips that would be used in the device.

The iPhone 8 is expected to be powered by an A11 chip that is built by TSMC and will use a 10nm process. The smaller build process allows the chip to perform better than current generation processors and to consume less power making the devices it is inside run longer per charge. BGR reports that TSMC has now begun production of those new 10nm chips that Apple will be using in the iPhone 8.

According to sources cited, production was previously affected by issues involving stacking components, but that has been solved. BGR reports, "TSMC has begun 10nm chip production for Appleā€™s next-generation iPhone 8 series, the sources said. Production was once affected by issues involving stacking components in the backend integrated fan-out packaging process, but they have already been solved, the sources said."

Apple isn't the only company that will be using these 10 nm TSMC processors. MediaTek and HiSilicon will also be getting chips from the company. It's good to hear that the A11 chip isn't causing delays anymore, but the rub for iPhone 8 hopefuls is that there were numerous other components said to be delaying production incoung that touch ID sensor between the glass.
