Apple’s Bionic processors have always been better than SoCs in other smartphones. What’s more, the company releases a new A series Bionic that is better than the previous generation, in terms of performance. However, that might not be the case with the A17 SoCs that will be released in 2025. It will come inside the iPhone 15 series. According to the report, Apple is more focused on improving the battery life than improving the performance this time.
A recent report from 9to5Mac suggests that the next-gen A17 Bionic chip might prioritize battery life over processing power. TSMC’s chairman recently revealed the information in a statement when asked about the company’s 3nm chips.
For those who are unfamiliar, TSMC is responsible for producing Apple Bionic chips. We already know that the manufacturer will use a 3nm processor node to develop the next-gen A17 chips. Plus, the production has already started a few days back.
What’s more, the company celebrated the start of mass production of 3nm by holding a ceremony a few days ago. More recently, Mark Liu, TSMC’s chairman, unveiled exceptional efficiency improvements resulting from the new process. The chairman told Bloomberg that the 3nm process delivers better performance than the 5nm chips while consuming 35% less power.

Furthermore, Apple might release Macs featuring the new M2 Pro chip based on the new process before the iPhone 15’s A17 SoC. Additionally, reports suggest that the Apple M3 processor might also use a 3nm process.
It is worth mentioning that Apple might still prioritize performance over power after what TSMC says. It is for Apple to decide.
