TSMC reportedly preparing for volume production of Apple's A13 SoC

According to insiders, Apple will keep its release cycle from past year by delivering two high-end successors to the XS and XS Max as well as an updated XR.

In brief: Bloomberg reports that TSMC is ready to kick off mass production of Apple's A13 SoC. TSMC will build the A13 chips on its 7nm N7 Pro process, using extreme ultraviolet lithography. Production kicked off in April, Bloomberg's sources suggest, with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. - or TSMC - starting up test runs of its manufacturing.

Apple should be able to create more distance between the iPhone 11 and the rest of the Android field with the new A13 chip, but it's not clear from the report what sort of capabilities it will have.

According to the report, the new iPhone XR will gain a second camera on the rear, while the XS and XS Max are set to gain a third. According to early reports, it seems the new models will feature the new A13 processor, boosting performance and increasing battery life.

This third camera will boast a wide-angle lens that can produce larger, more detailed photos and will offer a broader zoom range. But the reporters also provided some additional details about the new phones, confirming numerous rumors and reports that have been floating around the internet.

While the design of these new iPhones will remain the same, Apple has included an extra camera on the back. This is a feature that Samsung introduced on its Galaxy S10 series of handsets, so it was only a matter of time before Apple caught up. There will also be an auto-correction feature in which people who were accidentally cut out from a photo can be added back into it. This backs up rumors and (ugly) renders of a new triple-camera array, located within a square bump at the top left corner.
