GlobalFoundries has filed multiple suits in US and German courts, alleging that Apple and chip supplier TSMC are infringing 16 patents — and iPhone imports into the US could be impacted in the future as a result.
Apple's iPad Air has finally been updated after several years, and with that update, there are a couple of new features that we're really excited about. AppleInsider walks you through our top features of the 2019 iPad Air.
Hot on the heels of Apple's 2019 iPad Air and Mini announcements, a Geekbench ranking has appeared for one of the tablets — though it's uncertain which.
Taiwan-based chip manufacturer TSMC is predicting modest growth in the new quarter, suggesting that production of smartphone chips — particularly for Apple's iPhone — will offset not just weakness in cryptocurrency mining, but risks caused by the ongoing trade war between the U.S. and China.
Following Apple's A12 Bionic powering iPhone XS and iPhone XR models, Huawei has released its own custom 7nm ARM System on a Chip. But despite using the same fab process, Huawei's Kirin 980-powered Mate 20 Pro flagship lags far behind Apple's iPhone XS A12, turning in performance scores well below last year's A11 iPhone X.
Performance improvements in the A12 Bionic chip used in the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max has put Apple's in-house CPU designs on a par with processors used in notebooks and computers, one extensive deep dive declares, with the latest processor bringing the mobile chip line within striking distance of "the best desktop CPUs."
Apple's insistence on custom design of chips like the Neural Engine in the iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR is about unchaining the company's other designers, according to the lead of its chip architects.
What appear to be early benchmarks of the iPhone XS have appeared on Geekbench, giving a rawer view of the device's specifications than those offered by Apple.
In revealing the iPhone XS on Wednesday, Apple also detailed its core processor, the 7-nanometer A12 Bionic, which includes a new iteration of its "Neural Engine" for tasks related to machine learning, such as Face ID and animoji.
