Apple is on an 18-month cycle for the production of its Apple Silicon chips, says a new report from the Taiwanese Commercial Times.
The report repeats information from previous reports, which has also pointed to an 18-month production model for the Cupertino firm’s in-house chips. The report claims that the next “M2” generation of chips will launch in the second half of 2022 and is codenamed Staten, while “M2 Pro” and “M2 Max” chips expected to launch in the first half of 2023.
Apple’s M2 series processors all use the 4-nanometer process and will be updated to the M3 series processors after an 18-month cycle. It is expected that they will be mass-produced using TSMC’s 3-nanometer process.
Apple announced the M1, its first Apple Silicon-based chip, back in November 2020, and expanded the M1 family with the M1 Pro and M1 Pro Max chips in October 2021.
