Apple partner TSMC will open a plant in Japan

TSMC, the exclusive supplier of the processors used by Apple on the iPhone, iPad and Mac M1, has announced plans to build a new plant in Japan.

As reported Nikkei Asia, TSMC announced his intention to make his own Japan’s first chip plant to respond to Tokyo’s call to strengthen the local semiconductor supply chain and address an unprecedented global crisis for these components. The CEO of the company said that the company has already received the approval of its most important customers (presumably also Apple) and the Japanese government, so the work could start in the coming months.

Recall that TSMC produces all A15 Bionic chips used by Apple on the iPhone 13 range.
