Apple's upcoming A17 chip for the iPhone 15 Pro and M3 chip for Mac will use TSMC's N3E chipmaking technology, an upgraded version of its current 3nm process, reports Nikkei.

The A17 mobile processor currently under development will be mass-produced using TSMC's N3E chipmaking tech, expected to be available in the second half of next year, according to three people familiar with the matter. The A17 will be used in the premium entry in the iPhone lineup slated for release in 2023, they said.

N3E is said to offer better performance and energy efficiency. Additionally, it is designed to be more cost-effective.

Apple aims to be the first company to use N3E technology and it's expected to be the first to use TSMC's 3nm technology when it unveils new iPad Pros next month. Intel had plans to secure 3nm production by this year or early next; however, sources say it's delayed orders to at least 2024.

This year, Apple distinguished its iPhone 14 Pro from the iPhone 14 with a new A16 chip. The company is expected to continue this practice in the future, likely giving only the iPhone 15 Pro its new A17 chip and using this year's A16 chip for the iPhone 15.
