Apple has made no foundry changes to iPad processors for the same product generation, I blogged about their chip history at SemiWiki.

Apple has a history of silently changing chips/process in small quantities without telling anyone. AFAIR, they changed the soc inside one of the ipad generations a few years ago when going from 32-28nm. There was a while that the current ipad at the time came with one of two different socs, and there was no way to tell, except the newer soc had a longer battery life and the ipad ran cooler.

It would therefore not surprise me if some existing apple products out there are already shipping with a new soc.

This was good opportunity for tear down to be first people to inform that TSMC is inside Apple devices and what kind of geometry is employed.

I assume tear down analysts are very active and could have researched this much in advance. Have they encountered A7 or other SOC from TSMC in Apple device?

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
