Production kicked off in April, Bloomberg's sources suggest, with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. - or TSMC - starting up test runs of its manufacturing. The chip will be used for the new iPhones to be released later this year.
The US company is extending its in-house design strategy: The iPhone is one of several Apple devices that include custom processors. Apple plans to add some new components to the A13 chip, including cellular modems for making calls and internet connection. Furthermore, TSMC was not expected to begin mass production of 7nm EUV chips until next month. It was also popular in the USA where iOS has more of an even split with Android - accounting for around 45 percent of all new smartphones.
The new versions of all three iPhone models - the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR - will gain an extra rear camera lens, Bloomberg says, created to offer improved zoom and (in the premium model) ultra-wide angle shots.
This time it's Japanese blog Mac Otakara passing on the leaked info, and the gist is that green and lavender colors are going to be among the six available when the iPhone XR 2 arrives in September.
But the real surprise is what you'll be able to do with the rumored third camera.The 2019 iPhones should be getting a third camera with an ultra-wide lens. It has been confirmed that each of these phones will gain further an additional camera - 3 on the back of the iPhone XS and XS Max sequels and 2 on the rear of the iPhone XR successor. It will also enable a broader range of zoom.
Leaked molds of this year's iPhone lineup again hint at big camera upgrades for all three models. Apple is also working on an auto-correction feature to fit people back into a photo who may have been accidentally cut out. This backs up rumors and (ugly) renders of a new triple-camera array, located within a square bump at the top left corner.
