Prepare your wallet for the iPhone 15
This situation is nothing new for either TSMC or Apple. The chip manufacturer already did the same when went from a 7nm core to a 5nm one; At that time, the manufacturing price increased by 60%, starting to ask for 16,000 rupees (188 euros in exchange) compared to the 10,000 (118 euros in exchange) that production originally cost.
Now, if the rumors are true, the Taiwan company plans to get to collect more than 20,000 rupees (235 euros to change) due to the new 3 nm CPU that the iPhone 15 line will debut. It is quite likely that the only models that boast this processor are the Pro and Pro Max variants; while the standard and Plus version would stay with the Apple Bionic A16.
Currently, Tim Cook’s company uses the A16 chip in the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max. So it would not be surprising if repeat the strategy with the new generation of smartphones. Although it is true that there is the possibility that Apple will need Samsung again for the manufacture of its processors, although it is almost ruled out because it will not want to grant benefits to its main competitor.
Also, this new 3nm chip is expected to ensure a 15% performance improvement and one 30% reduction in consumption battery compared to 5nm. We can only wait to see what finally happens with the iPhone 15, its price and the CPU it will carry.
Some complaints that have not stopped
When Apple revealed the value of the iPhone 14 models in Europe, the vast majority of users raised their hands to their heads. To the extent that Twitter was full of criticism and memes for the rise in prices that many considered abusive. We have compiled three of the infinite opinions that you can find on the social network and one of them states the following:
“I bought a new iPhone, the difference between the 11 Pro Max and this 14 Pro Max is insane. Also, the dynamic island is kind of cool but it seems useless. So you add some fun things to the dynamic island. The camera bulge is ridiculous. But the sensation of 14 feels expensive.
A SellCell user survey reveals that 45.3% of people will keep their iPhone for now. Furthermore, 22.5% said they would not be willing to buy the iPhone 14 Plus due to its high price. Some data that shows the disagreement of the community, although Apple can turn a deaf ear to such demands with a view to the arrival of the iPhone 15.
