TSMC is expected to secure the first 5nm chip orders from Apple for its 2020 iPhones, according to a DigiTimes report.

TSMC expressed previously optimism about its performance in 2020 and 2021, when 5G and other emerging technologies mature. Despite its dim business and industry outlook this year, TSMC claimed it is making progress in the development of sub-7nm process technologies with plans to move a newer 5nm EUV process to volume production by 2020 well on track.

Apple's iPhone XS features an A12 Bionic chip manufactured on TSMC's 7nm process. This year's new 'A13' chip will likely be 7nm as well but TSMC is expected to use extreme ultraviolet lithography (EUV) to reduce the number of lithography steps required in production.

Various chipmakers are expected to showcase their next generation chip solutions for AI and 5G at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain. TSMC is a major foundry partner for many of these companies. The event begins on Monday, February 25th and runs until Thursday, February 28th.
