A new supply chain report claims that Apple Silicon will go into production in the 4th quarter, so it will probably be launched during a special event sometime in the timeline in November. It’s the beginning of a new era for Apple, and it deserves a big event to kick it right.

TSMC is expected to start making Apple Silicon in the fourth quarter of 2020. Apple’s increasing use of SiP technology sets a trend that many in the semiconductor sector are keen to follow. And leading providers of backend services expect that sales from the SiP companies will increase by approximately 30% in 2020.
Apple will launch its 5 nm wafer launcher at TSMC for its new Apple Silicon processors starting in the fourth quarter of 2020, with a monthly output estimated at 5,000-6,000 wafers, according to industry sources. + 5 nm Apple Silicon chips.
