Well we have got some good news, Today we have got some trusted news from the guys at Taiwan Economic News which says that Apple has just began working on it’s A6 processor, so we may say that production of the next chip in the Ax series of SoCs by Apple have begun.

According to the report the A6 Processor should finalized in the first quarter of 2012 while it will be publicly unveiled – we expect – with the iPad 3 in first half of 2012.

Taiwan Economic News Report :

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (TSMC), the world’s largest semiconductor foundry by market shares now, has allegedly started trial production of the A6 processor in cooperation with Apple Inc., with the production design to be taped out in the first quarter of next year and scheduled to be publicly unveiled in the second quarter at the earliest, according to industry sources.
In fact, the sources said, TSMC has been capable of handling processor production for Apple, but didn’t build the business ties with the customer in the past due mainly to limited production lines, which were almost fully booked by existing customers, including Nvidia and Qualcomm. But, the industry has been experiencing a depression, making TSMC stand the chance to collaborate with Apple on processor production this year.

 And from this report we conclude that TSMC will lead the manufacturing of the A6 Processor and not Samsung.
So let us see what will happen and of course we will keep you updated with the latest news about the A6 Processor.
