Apple iPhone 5s’s A7 SoC constructed by Samsung, M7 processor comes from NXP
Rumors swirled forward of the iPhone 5s’ launch that the silicon inside it will come from a supply aside from Samsung. Regardless of signing a cope with TSMC to fabricate future SoC’s, Chipworks has confirmed that the A7 powering the brand new flagship iPhone comes from a well-known place: Samsung’s fabrication amenities. But, whereas Apple could not reduce the tie that binds it to its biggest rival for the primary mind of the telephone, it did handle to supply the secondary M7 chip from NXP. Once more, Chipworks found the M7’s origin, and whereas we might like to ship you straight there for the nitty gritty now, it seems the location is at present down — so, iFixit’s secondary reporting of Chipworks‘ work should do… for now.
