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?
