TSMC to commence mass production of Apple A13 chips this month

Apple moves one step closer to iPhone XI launch with next-gen SoC production start

Apart from new colours, we've already heard plenty of leaks and predictions around what Apple might do with the follow-up to the iPhone XR.

If all goes according to plan, Apple should release a new generation of iPhone series in September this year.

Bloomberg's sources said that Apple is planning to include new components in the chip, such as a cellular modem for making calls and connecting to the internet and power components based on a recent deal with Dialog Semiconductor Plc. The report indicates that the new A13 chipset will begin as early as next month and eventually be featured in the trio of iPhones.

The third lens on the high-end models is a super wide-angle lens that produces larger, thinner shots and a wider zoom. It will also allow for increased zoom, and Apple is reportedly working on an auto-correction feature for its camera app as well to add people back into photos when they've been cut out. But the reporters also provided some additional details about the new phones, confirming numerous rumors and reports that have been floating around the internet.

The only thing he apparently didn't have time to do, is the latest rumor that the iPhone XR's successor will ship with a new color set to choose from. The three new devices will feature identical designs to the current gen ones with the exception of the back where the flagships will now feature a triple camera setup with an ultra-wide sensor while the XR successor will get a second telephoto lens. This would be similar to the Galaxy S10 and Huawei P30 Pro.

Finally, Bloomberg reports that the upcoming XS and XS Max successors will be "about half a millimeter thicker" than their predecessors, and confirms that the camera array will be contained in a small square in the top left.
