Apple processor supplier TSMC has reportedly started taping out the design for the A11 chip. This chip might enter small-scale production as early as the second quarter of 2017, probably to prepare for the iPhone 7s, which will be released that year, claims DigiTimes.

Will Apple follow a two-supplier strategy for A11?

Currently, TSMC is working on the 10-nanometer FinFET process, and the new chip design is based on this, says the report. It’s expected that the certification for the process will come in the fourth quarter of 2016 and that in the following quarter, sample deliveries will be made to the iPhone maker. Then in the second half of 2017, the chips to be used in the iPhone 7s will likely be shipped.
