iPhone 13’s A15 chip production could start soon, but the upgrades might be small iPhone 12 mini

The chipsets in the iPhone range are always among the best of a given year, and they tend to outperform top Android options in benchmarks, but for the iPhone 13 we might not see as much of a performance improvement as we do some years.

That’s because the A15 chipset we’re expecting to power it will apparently still be made on a 5nm (nanometer) process. Generally, we see the biggest performance boosts when the new generation chipset moves to a smaller size, but that change isn’t happening this year according to DigiTimes.
