Didn't expect the performance of A16? Apple's strongest self-developed CPU M2 exposure: a big leap in technology and performance
For Apple, strengthening the promotion of self-developed chips is the top priority, so the next A16 and M2 are also very popular.

The A16 chip for the iPhone will reportedly be built on the same 5nm process as the iPhone 13's A15 Bionic, while Apple will leave the bigger performance leap to the "M2" chip it designs for its next Mac.

According to sources, the A16 will use TSMC's N5P process. This suggests that the substantial upgrade of the A16 may not be as big as previously thought.

The M2 chip will apparently be the first Apple chip to upgrade to TSMC's 3nm process, skipping 4nm entirely. The M2 is believed to be Apple's first custom ARMv9 processor.

Apple is also said to be working on a "final SoC for the M1 series," which will feature an upgraded core structure. The M1, M1 Pro, M1 Max and M1 Ultra chips use energy-efficient "Icestorm" cores and high-performance "Firestorm" cores – just like the A14 Bionic chip.

Apple's last M1 variant will be based on the A15 Bionic chip, swapped for "Blizzard" energy-efficient cores and "Avalanche" high-performance cores, and this last chip in the M1 series will likely be available in the next Mac Pro.
