According to the latest report from reliable insiders, Apple has recently assigned Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) as the main supplier of the A10 chip, which is expected to be used in the iPhone 7 that will come in 2016. The rumor comes from a rather reliable Asian newspaper China Times, so it’s rather trustworthy. As noted by the same sources, the next-generation iPhone processor will be built using a 16-nanometer technology and InFO architecture. The production of the chip will reportedly start next year in March.
A well-known iOS developer Hamza Sood has recently discovered that the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus both have 2GB of RAM.

Hamza Sood is quite a reliable insider, so we can believe what he has revealed.

At the most-recent media event devoted to new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, Apple also unveiled a completely new device called the iPad Pro. We've already told you about the specs of the 12.9-inch tablet and showed you a bunch of photos depicting the device.

An “Unable to open the MRU file …” will appear until the stream has started.
Apple is expected to unveil a new iPad Air, iPad mini, and Retina iMac alongside other possibilities and a release date for OS X Yosemite. The live stream will require Safari 5.1.10 or later on OS X v10.6.8 or later; Safari on iOS 6.0 or later. Streaming via Apple TV requires second- or third-generation Apple TV with software 6.2 or later. Mac and iOS users can stream the event through Apple’s website here when it kicks off at 10 a.m. PDT tomorrow.
