iPhones to have A13 chip, new cameras and reverse charging, says report

Production has started reportedly on a key part of Apple’s next generation of iPhones. Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing has begun the test production of the A13 processor which will power Apple’s next phone, possibly the iPhone 11, according to a report on Bloomberg this Friday citing unnamed sources. This new chip could reportedly enter mass production as early as this month.


Typically Apple unveils its new line of iPhones in September. Though there is very little definitive news about the new flagship smartphone, rumors say it will have three rear cameras and reverse charging. A 5G version of the iPhone 11 is not expected anytime soon.

Before the new iPhones are unveiled, the company is expected to show off the next version of its operating system for mobile, the iOS 13, at its annual WWDC. The conference starts on June 3. There might be other possible announcements for the event which include a new version of MacOS and an App Store for Apple Watch. There might be even new hardware such as a new iPad or MacBook.


Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment while Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing declined to comment.
