According to a new report, Apple’s iPhone 17 Pro will feature TSMC’s 2nm chipset next year. In 2022, TSMC announced it was developing a 2nm process, and even back then rumors said it would be the iPhone 17 Pro’s chipset.

The rumor has now been confirmed – as much as anything can be ‘confirmed’ by rumor. In time for the iPhone 17 Pro’s release in the fall of next year, TSMC is expected to launch 2nm production on a small scale later this year, and mass production in 2025.

Apple reportedly contracted TSMC’s entire 2nm process earlier this year, at least initially. Furthermore, 2nm chips are apparently intended to be used in future Apple Silicon Mac models.

According to this report, 2nm will be followed by an enhanced version of 2nm in 2026, and then 1.4nm will follow – assuming this report is accurate.

It appears all of that AI processing, the part that’s on device will have to make do without 2nm chips this year as the iPhone 16 series and iOS 18 are expected to launch later this year.
