It was widely expected that TSMC would be producing Apple’s latest and greatest chips, but now this leak may have confirmed it will be using the supplier’s new 5nm technology. Apple Terminal is unable to verify the image above is real, or from within TSMC itself.

This adds to the pile of leaks we’ve heard about the iPhone 12. This week we got what Apple leaker Jon Prosser claims to be the whole lineup, including sizes, storage, and specs. You can check that report here.
