Apple’s partnership with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) is set to take a significant leap forward, with the anticipated shift to a 2nm manufacturing process by 2025. This development follows the successful integration of 3nm technology in Apple’s latest chips, the A17 Pro and M3 series, which debuted in 2023. The 3nm process, currently utilized in the iPhone 15 Pro and M3 MacBook Pro, has notably enhanced processing power and energy efficiency.

The move to a 2nm process represents a substantial advancement in chip technology, promising even greater efficiency and performance. This is particularly relevant as Apple’s A18 chip is expected to be unveiled in September, alongside the iPhone 16. Although experts predict that the M4 chip, likely to utilize the new 2nm process, won’t emerge within the next 12 months, the anticipation is building for its eventual release.

Meanwhile, TSMC is making strides in implementing the 2nm technology, preparing for high-volume production in the latter half of 2025. The company’s progress includes plans for new factories in Baoshan and Kaohsiung, Taiwan. This advancement is not just a win for Apple but also marks a significant moment for the broader high-performance computing and smartphone markets. The industry’s interest in and demand for 3nm technology, already strong, is expected to transition smoothly into the 2nm era, highlighting the continuous innovation in chip manufacturing.
