    The Twitter user Longhorn (@never_released) has information about the A13.
    Links: [1] [2] [3]

    There is discussion on the Real World Tech forums about these details including the potential implications of the core codenames. Neither codename is about wind so maybe they indicate larger architectural changes than the past five generations?

    Apple is in big need of ew tentpole features to drive device upgrades. Unless hardware tracing helps deliver some whiz bang new feature, may not be the best use of R&D.

    Apple needs to find way to deliver products at lower price points. iPhone XS and XS Max sales may show they can't charge whatever they want.

    An Apple SOC in a Mac laptop may deliver better performance than low end Intel chips but they're going to need to lower costs so they can lower prices.

    How about a phone based on the 4S shell with upgraded screen and internals? :p Something with actual grip and thickness for battery and lenses too :rolleyes: The new screen types would probably put the 4S chassis at the size close to the viewable area of the 5/6. *cough*

    sigh duck.

    Anyways.

    I'm just saying the days of "cost no object" in SOC design and production may be coming to an end for Apple.
