Just a couple of days ago, we told you all about a then upcoming jailbreak tweak dubbed Checkl0ck by iOS developer FoxfortMobile intended to enable biometric authentication on A11 chip-equipped handsets that had been jailbroken with checkra1n.
The iPhone X is a powerful new beast. Whether you are still debating on whether to get the new phone, or if you just want to know what makes this device stand out, I've taken a look at the 25 best features of the iPhone X.
When Apple informed GPU component supplier Imagination Technology back in April that they would no longer be requiring their services, their shares dropped by nearly 50% by the following day. It has been a bit of a bitter separation, with Imagination saying that Apple would be unable to create their own GPU without violating their patents.
Many people are still waiting for the premium iPhone X to hit the market in November. But in the meantime, iPhone 8 shoppers have started to receive their brand spanking new phones.
There’s undoubtedly a lot of hype for Apple's new iPhone X, but if you’re looking to save some money and get the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus instead, then you’re probably interested in how it compares to the previous generation model and whether it's worth the upgrade.
While they look similar at first glance, some distinguishing features set the two models apart. In this piece, we’ll dispel some confusion by going over some of the most significant changes between the previous-generation iPhone 7/7 Plus and the new iPhone 8/8 Plus.
Included in the new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus is Apple's powerful new processor, the A11 Bionic. Apple says it is the smartest, and most powerful processor ever in a smartphone.
The next iPhone is going to pack in unprecedented compute power thanks to an Apple-designed A11 chip that has six independently addressable CPU cores that can all run at once, according to code strings in a leaked iOS 11 Gold Master build.
Developer Steven Troughton-Smith has discovered a possible code-name for a set of high-performance CPU cores to be found inside Apple's in-house designed “A11” system-on-a-chip that will power iPhone X and iPhone 8/Plus: “Mistral”.
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), the sole supplier of Apple's new A11 processor, recently kicked off mass production of the upcoming chip and last week leak aggregator SlashLeaks posted a pair of blurry images claiming to depict the new processor.
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) has commenced production of Apple-designed A11 chips for upcoming iPhones and iPads.
According to a report Thursday from Taiwanese trade publication DigiTimes, the semiconductor foundry has successfully resolved initial manufacturing issues in the company's ten-nanometer FinFET process technology.
“TSMC has begun 10nm chip production for Apple's next-generation iPhone 8 series,” sources told the publication. “Production was once affected by issues involving stacking components in the backend integrated fan-out packaging process, but they have already been solved.”
TSMC is Apple's exclusive manufacturer of the in-house designed 16-nanometer A10 Fusion chip for the iPhone 7 series. TSMC's new ten-nanometer process should yield smaller chips that run faster and consume less energy.
TSMC has also secured 12-nanometer chip orders (a smaller version of its 16nm technology) from Nvidia, MediaTek, Silicon Motion Technology and HiSilicon. As for TSMC's 10nm process, the node technology has obtained orders from Apple, MediaTek and HiSilicon, as per sources.
Quarterly chip demand for iPhone is predicted to surpass 50 million units in the second half of this year as Apple begins to stockpile next-generation processors and other chips for 2017 iPhones, trade publication DigiTimes said Wednesday. Chip orders should hit a total of between 220 million and 230 million units between the end of the second quarter and the beginning of the third. This implies strong projected demand for the OLED-based iPhone 8 and the iterative LCD-based iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus updates.
Apple's favorite chip foundry, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), is about to kick off volume production of a new Apple-designed A11 chip widely expected to serve as the engine for new iOS devices this year, including an all-new iPhone 8 with an OLED display and the iterative iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus with LCD screens.
