Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) supplier Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing(TSMC) will reportedly start producing the A11 chip for the next iPhone family in April, according to a leak from Chinese news outlet Economic Daily News (via MacRumors). The report also indicates that TSMC is targeting a production run of 50 million A11 chips before July, as Apple doesn’t want to run into supply chain issues.
More importantly, Apple could build around 120 million new iPhones this year as compared to 89 million units of the iPhone 7/7S in 2016 — according to Mizuho. This is great news for the other companies in Cupertino’s supply chain — such as Skyworks Solutions (NASDAQ:SWKS), Broadcom (NASDAQ:AVGO), and Cypress Semiconductor (NASDAQ:CY) — as they won’t have to wait until the second half of the year to bask in iPhone-driven glory.
