We heard a rumor last year that TSMC would be the sole manufacturer for the A10 processor for the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus smartphones.
A new report has suggested that TSMC will indeed be the only supplier of the Apple A10 processor for this years iPhones.
TSMC has apparently won the contract to produce the Apple A10 processor using the 10-nanometer manufacturing process, Samsung were reported to have been in the running to produce the processors as well, but the contract has apparently been rewarded to TSMC.
The iPhone 7 is rumored to come with a number of upgrades over the iPhone 6, as well as the new processor it will also come with more RAM than the current models.
The cameras on the handset are expected to get an update, the camera lens is said to be more flush to the casing and the 7 Plus could come with a dual lens camera.
Apple are also rumored to be ditching some of the colored antenna bands on the back of the handset to give the device more sleek look.
The headphone jack is also rumored to be removed on this years iPhones instead the lightning port on the handset will be used for audio and headphones.
Apple are expected to launch their new iPhones some time in September, we are also expecting to see a new 4 inch iPhone in March, the iPhone 5SE which is said to come with much of the hardware of the iPhone 6S.
One thing we are hoping Apple will add to this years new iPhones is higher resolution displays, we would expect the iPhone 7 to at least feature a full 1080p display.
