All iPhone models coming in the fall are expected to use the A11 chip, including the iterative “S” cycle upgrades to Apple’s existing 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones. The processor relies on a new 10-nanometer FinFET manufacturing process introduced by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), the sole supplier of the new chip.

TSMC was reported to have been awarded exclusive rights to manufacture the A11 for Apple last year, thanks to its advanced manufacturing techniques.

The A11 is expected to be faster and more power efficient than its predecessors. This should lead to better performance and improved battery life in the upcoming new iPhones.

The “iPhone 8” is expected to debut in September, and is said to feature a glass body with an edge-to-edge OLED display that no longer features a Home Button. A new facial recognition system is rumored to replace or supplement the tried and true Touch ID system for user identification.
