Before the end of the year, TSMC is expected to produce 100 million A11 processors. Such a huge order for the next-generation chipset suggests that the Cupertino company is quite optimistic about its next-generation iPhones.
Leaked information indicates that the Apple A11 will be arriving with multi-core architecture. Apple may continue to use quad-core processor in the Apple A11 SoC.
