Apple’s upcoming iPhone 11 models will all arrive with the sophisticated A13 processor system on chip (SoC), rumors say. In order to be sure that Apple’s smartphones won’t encounter supply shortages, the Taiwanese smartphone chipset manufacturer TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company) has apparently already started to produce the A13 processor which will be included in the Apple’s iPhone 2019 series.
The TSMC will produce the next iPhone’s A13 chipset on a 7nm processor, with SoC coming with the most recent and impressive hardware features that will enhance Apple’s 2019 iPhone capacity to process images, real-time data, and audio. Despite this, the next generation of iPhones will not have incorporated the fifth production of mobile telecommunications paradigm, which means that the upcoming editions iPhone 11 will not have 5G modems.
However, the next series, the new edition of iPhones coming in 2020 from Apple’s Cupertino company will come with 5G modems included.
News of Apple collaborating with Qualcomm to create and develop their 5G modem has made the rounds of the internet just recently even if the company has kept the silence over their partnership with Qualcomm while working to enhance the 5G modem and improve its connectivity. The reports say that Apple will only release an iPhone featuring 5G next year.
iPhone 11 Models Will Get The Powerful A13 Processor But No 5G
Due to the A13 System on Chip – a customized processor which is much more powerful than its precursor – 2019 iPhones will come with advanced AI and machine learning.
The A12 chipset is being incorporated in the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, and Apple’s 2019 variants of iPad Air and iPad Mini. However, the A13 will advance the neural network hardware – ‘next-generation neural engine’, as Apple calls it, even more. The prior editions had 8 cores that can carry out up to 5 trillion 8-bit operations per second, and A12’s neural network hardware’s access has been enabled (by Apple) for third-party applications creators.
The new A13 processor will be incorporated in the upcoming descendants of the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR. As mentioned above, these pieces of information are only unproven claims until Apple decides to drop an announcement on it. The new series of iPhones will be launched in September, and come with a specific feature that differences them from the others: iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max descendants could have a triple camera array on the back.
