Apple CEO Tim Cook delivers the keynote address at the Apple 2012 World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) at Moscone West on June 11, 2012 in San Francisco, California. Apple unveiled a slew of new hardware and software updates at the company’s annual developer conference which runs through June 15.
According to Forbes‘ latest report, before the tech giant manufacturer released its current M1 chipset, its MacBook laptops can’t provide the right specs and other features that would improve the users’ laptop experiences. Thanks to its latest Apple Silicon SoC, the giant tech firm was able to make its M1 MacBook flagships one of its most popular products.
And now, Apple could be working on another batch of its in-house chips for both next-gen iPhones and MacBook Pros.
Here are other major rumored details that you should know.

“TSMC will move N4 (namely 4nm process) to volume production in the fourth quarter of 2021, ahead of the 2022 timeframe set previously, according to sources at fab toolmakers,” said Jessie Shen and Monica Chen, the Apple leakers from DIGITIMES.
This means that Apple might be working with the Taiwanese firm TSMC, which is the giant tech company that could manufacture the rumored M2 chipsets.
“Apple has also contracted TSMC to make its next-generation iPhone processor dubbed A15, built using the foundry’s N5 Plus or N5P process node, the sources said,” added the two Apple leaker.
When will they arrive?
On the other hand, Toms Guide reported that the new M2 chip, which is considered a more powerful version of the current Apple in-house chip, could be released as the new 2021 MacBook range’s processors.
However, there’s also a chance that this new product would not arrive this 2021. If that’s the case, Apple could still make some major upgrades on its next-gen MacBook models.
Meanwhile, the upcoming versions of iPhone flagships could be powered by the new A15 Bionic chipset, which is also a more advanced version of the current A14 Bionic smartphone processor. Some rumors claimed that it would be using 4nm technology, which is smaller compared to its predecessor.
Its arrival is expected to happen this coming 2022.
