Apple has shown that it doesn’t need Intel to be successful, but what do you do when you want to introduce more and more powerful tablets to the public? Simple, you rely on TSMC partners and deliver on the iPad Pro 2022 a processor based on the 3nm manufacturing process. Or at least that’s what the rumors say.
Sow apples and harvest apples by themselves
So the company has to use processors handpicked from its own garden, and names like the M1 are already well known in the world of their products, even on the newer iPads i.e. 11 and 12.9, respectively. The latest model, i.e. the iPad Air, is based on the A14 Bionic chip, which is also in the iPhone 12 circuits, and both chips (M1 and A14 Bionic) work on 5 nanometers.
Things are about to change if we want to give credibility to the data from Nikki Asia. For the iPad Pro 2022, Apple will introduce a new 3nm processor, which will deliver a performance boost of up to 15% over current iterations (5nm). In addition, consumption will be reduced from 30% to 25%, so the differences are significant.
iPad Pro 2022 may be the first to benefit from 3nm process
It is not yet known whether the 3nm processor, made by TSMC, will find its place within the iPad Pro 2022 or iPad Air lineup, but the community expects it to be the first, in a context where iPad Pros are more specialized. for high performance. It will be launched in the second half of 2022, during which time it has been rumored that Apple is working on another type of build for its tablets. The new iPads will be covered with a glass back, which is the back that houses wireless charging technology, including reverse.
