According to recent reports, Apple is paying more than two times for the A16 Bionic chipset as compared to the A15 Bionic Chip…

Now Apple hasn’t been the most generous brand out there when it comes out to the spring of their products, then let it be the iPhone or a cloth. This doesn’t mean that it’s out of line anywhere, as suggested by the new iPhone 14 series. The 14 series has four different devices two Pro and two non-Pro, the Pro gets the most benefit of all and the non-pro remains the same as the last year, consider the 14 plus to be just bigger in size with a bigger battery that’s it…

A16

The 14 and 14 Plus gets the same hardware as the previous year’s iPhone 13, and gets chipset from the 13 Pro which had the ramped-up chipset as compared to the normal iPhone 13 … Now this year it’s on next-level iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max is the only device in series to get A16 Bionic chip, which makes it the worst for the customers, but best for their pockets or is it?…

Recent reports suggest Apple is paying more than 2 times for the A16 as compared to the predecessor, which does clear up the conspiracy why the iPhone is getting more expensive year by year. A news article shared on the internet suggests apple has been paying TSMC $110 for a single A16 Bionic chip.

TSMC’s N4 process node used to manufacture the A16 Bionic is actually an enhanced version of its 5nm node. Still, most of us media types refer to it as a 4nm chipset. A lower process node means that smaller transistors are used and this allows a chip’s transistor count to be higher. And the higher a chip’s transistor count, the more powerful and energy-efficient it is. The A15 Bionic was made using TSMC’s second-generation 5nm process node (N5P) and carries 15 billion transistors compared to the nearly 16 billion in the A16 Bionic and 11.8 billion in the A14 Bionic.

Now, Chipset is just one part of the device, Apple also imports the display which also costs more, and some other hardware which counts up the whole value of the device…

Still, think Apple charges more for their devices do leave a comment in the comments section…
