Chip-generation industry and commerce TSMC has reported revenue for June, a record month-on-month, or a sign that the A14 processor used in Apple’s new iPhone this fall has been mass-shipping. TSMC reported its June revenue on Friday, and its monthly revenue, usually on the 10th of the following month.

About the production time of Apple’s A14 processor,media have different reports, somemedia are reported TSMC in April began mass production of A14 processors, there aremedia reports that the end of June began mass production.
But from previous years, the new iPhone production time, release time, time to market, Apple’s A14 processor has reached the point of mass production, after packaging testing, and then put to the iPhone industry and commerce assembly, if the key processor is no large-scale mass production, will affect the new iPhone production.
