Although not much is known about the 2019 iPhone from the Cupertino-based tech giant Apple, it is confirmed that it will be powered by a new chip. A new report has surfaced online that claims that the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC) has started the production of the new chip for the next generation of iPhones. These chips are being called Apple A13 and as of now, and it has been said that they have already gone into the early phase of production. The report also suggests that the mass production of the Apple A13 chips will start this month itself.
The report first emerged on Bloomberg and it says that TSMC has started its early testing phase of the chips. These new chips will reportedly increase the battery life, speed and performance of the iPhone. The report further mentions that there could be around three new iPhone models this year and all three will be powered by the A13 chipset.
Out of the three, two are codenamed as D43 and the D44 while the third is codenamed N104. The N104 is being called the successor of the iPhone XR. There won’t be too many design changes to these new iPhones, but they will come with changed screen sizes. The successor of the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max will reportedly feature a triple-rear camera setup according to their renders. While the successor of the iPhone XR will hold a dual-rear camera setup. In other words, all upcoming iPhone 11 models will have an extra camera sensor on their backs compared to their predecessors. According to reports, there will also be an ultra-wide-angle lens and better zooming capabilities in the upcoming iPhones.
And this time, there is a possibility that Apple might be jumping on the reverse wireless charging feature to charge the AirPods. We already saw this technology with some other flagship devices of 2019 so it would make sense for Apple to adopt it as well. The users can place their AirPods on the back of the new iPhones to charge them wirelessly.
