“Apple” is a year ahead of its competitors. The American technology giant enters into a preferential agreement for electronic chips


Apple is preparing to supply the next generation of its iPhone smartphone with a processor that outperforms competing phones, thanks to the preferential agreement it signed with Taiwanese chip maker Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Corporation (TSMC).

According to a report published by "The Information" website, which specializes in technology affairs, the agreement allows the American electronics giant to obtain the latest and fastest chips produced by the Taiwanese company a year ahead of any of its competitors.

This means that the next phone, “iPhone 15” - which is expected to be launched next September - may contain a chip that is more powerful than the chips of any phones produced by competing companies, which may also apply to any new personal computer or tablet that Apple can launch this year. next.

Although the terms and details of the “Apple” agreement with “TSMC” were not disclosed, it makes the Taiwanese company the sole supplier of chips to the American company, and the Taiwanese bears the bill for the emergence of any defects in the new chips due to the huge pre-orders of “Apple” .

This news comes after years of “Apple” making great strides towards the distinguished performance of its products, using the energy-saving “M1” processor in 2020, which helped it dispense with dealing with the American chip maker “Intel” in this basic sector.

And the shift allowed “Apple” from using “Intel” chips in “Mac” computers to using chips that it developed internally, to benefit from a common technical basis in its devices, whether “iPhone” phones, “iPad” tablets or personal “Macs” with faster performance of these. Devices that use complex applications.

It is noteworthy that TSMC's customer list includes AMD, ARM, Marvell, and Nvidia, in addition to a large number of One of the largest technology companies.
