Apple has selected TSMC as the exclusive manufacturer of its upcoming A10 chip for the iPhone 7, according to the China Times relayed by GforGames.

The chip will reportedly be built on a 16nm process with an InFO architecture.

Now, according to a new rumor, the next-gen Apple A10 application processor will be exclusively manufactured by TSMC on a 16 nm manufacturing process, using InFO architecture. InFO stands for “Integrated Fan Out”, and aside from streamlining the manufacturing process and diminishing costs, InFO might also allow the AP to be manufactured on a SiP (System in Package) design.

Sources claim that TSMC will start mass production of the A10 chip in March 2016, ahead of the iPhone 7's introduction in Q4 2016.
