Poor yields from both Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company's (TSMC) and Samsung's 10nm processes could cause delays in the release of Apple's new iPad and other electronic devices, reports DigiTimes.

TSMC has reportedly obtained 10nm chip orders from Apple, HiSilicon and MediaTek, with volume production set to kick off in the first quarter of 2017. Nevertheless, yield rates for TSMC's 10nm process technology are not what the foundry expected, the sources said.

The site says TSMC is scheduled to start making A10X chips for the next generation iPad slated for launch in March of 2017; however that schedule could be disrupted by unsatisfactory yield rates.

TSMC is also said to be making A100 chips for the iPhone 8 with volume production scheduled for the second quarter of 2017.
