Apple will reportedly use Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company’s (TMSC) improved M3 chip based on the 3nm process for Macs and an A17 Bionic chip for iPhone 15 Pro models expected to be released next year.

According to a report by AppleInsider, Nikkei Asia claims that N3E, TMSC’s improved 3nm process, will offer improved performance and power efficiency compared to TSMC’s first-generation 3nm process known as N3.

According to the report, it is not clear which iPad models the report refers to, as rumors suggest that Apple will update the iPad Pro next month with the M2 chip, which is manufactured based on TSMC’s second-generation 5nm process.

A new entry-level iPad with an older A14 chip is also expected later this year, the report said.

The report claims that 2023 could mark the second year in a row that only the Pro models of the new iPhone range feature Apple’s latest chip.

Last week, the tech giant introduced iPhone 14 Pro models with an A16 chip based on TSMC’s 4nm process, while the standard iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus models are equipped with the previous-generation A15 chip.
