Apple uses A12 chip in iPhone XI and iPhone 9
Apple uses A12 chip in iPhone XI and iPhone 9: The A12 chip by Apple will be mass-produced for use in the iPhone XI and the iPhone 9.
Apple and iPhone have dominated the smartphone and tech industry for the past decade with ease. Although collaborations with arch rivals (Samsung) have been successful, Apple has always striven to break tech boundaries and create futuristic hardware that quite frankly, wipes the floor with its rivals.
This latest announcement show Apple is keen to flex it’s superior muscles when it comes to producing components that whack its products out of the technical ball park.
So what’s all the fuss about the A12 chip? Well, according to reports, this tiny component is weighted with significance when it comes to processing power and capability. It’s been redeveloped so that it’s faster and smaller than previous generations, and it’s now in mass production for the latest iPhone models.
Smaller iPhone components
The iPhone XI and iPhone 9 will Sport the 7-nanometer design from Taiwanese supplier TSMC, reports Bloomberg. The less sizeable design enables the A12 chip to surpass the capabilities of the A11 bionic chip in both energy efficiency and speed. That means the new iPhone XI and the iPhone 9 will be more than just a souped-up versions of the iPhone X and iPhone 8. They will in fact carry tech never currently seen before, or mass produced for the smartphone market.
The smaller component also means Apple will have more room to play, design wise with their latest flagship smartphones – and that could mean very surprising changes to the next generation iPhones. Some reviewers are even wondering if this will mean the headphone jack returns. We’re not convinced though, as Apple is a company that always moves forward, never back.
When will we see the new iPhone XI and iPhone 9?
It looks likely that customers will remain in suspense until the third quarter of 2018 – which is when the predicted launch of the iPhone XI, the iPhone 9 and the iPhone SE Plus are predicted to take place. However, Apple considers launch dates a top secret affair (as these dates affect current sales levels when iPhone fans hold off buying new smartphones until the next generation arrives).
iPhone XI specs
Design: Aesthetic fans are in for a treat because the iPhone XI and the iPhone X Plus look se to be available in a new gold finish. The models will also be available in blue, yellow and pink.
Security: It’s a well-known rumour universally accepted as truth, that Touch ID will be expanded by Apple to its new Face ID facial recognition tech and will be available in all new iPhones released in autumn 2018.
Battery power: This is a controversial subject for iPhone users and fans in the wake of the battery scandal debacle – but Apple still seems to have come out of it smelling of roses. They have learned from their mistakes, it seems and are ensuring that all new models are fitted with a brand new 2850-2950 mAh power pack battery that provide 8% more power capacity. It doesn’t sound like much, but performance wise it makes a huge difference. Meanwhile, the iPhone Xs and XS Plus will be fitted with a 330-3400 mAh battery, which will boost performance by an impressive 25%.
5G technology: Called Gigabit LTE/LTE Advanced, this system enables users to access data sources over huge distances so that they can be online even in the most unlikely of places.
