Apple's new 5G chip for the iPhone 14 could deliver longer battery life.

According to Economic Daily News, TSMC has taken over Samsung's role in manufacturing all 5G radio frequency (RF) chips for the iPhone 14. The 5G RF chips are expected to be built using TSMC's 6nm process, which offer a smaller footprint with higher power efficiency. 

The smaller footprint of the 5G RF chip will help free up space within the iPhone 14 for other components such as a bigger battery. In addition, the 6nm RF process also enables the chip to consume less power on sub-6GHz and mmWave 5G bands while delivering great performance.

The 5G RF chip is also able to support Wi-Fi 6E for increased bandwidth and lesser interferences with the additional spectrum. Apple's upcoming mixed-reality headset is believed to support Wi-Fi 6E connectivity too.

Apple is rumoured to be developing its own wireless chips as it is recruiting engineers for wireless radios, RF integrated circuits, wireless chips, and semiconductors for connecting to Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. These wireless chips may not be integrated with the 5G radio modem that Apple is developing.
