Apple is still working on future chips which will only be available a few years later. According to a recent leak, the tech giant is developing A19 bionic and M5 processors. This means the work on the creation of the A18 Bionic and M4 models is almost finished.
There is evidence that Apple is using next generation chips for various devices to obtain a CPU identifier. The user with @orangera1n published that corresponding information on the X social network. Based on this information, work is already underway on the A19 bionic and M5 processors. That being said, the A19 Bionic can only have one version, while the M5 will eventually get multiple options, including the more functional Pro, Max and Ultra variants.
Apple has shown that the A19 and M5 Pro/Max/Ultra SOCs appear to be working, but it hasn’t yet been apparent why 0x6033/0x6034 is pic.twitter.com/C8f5vcrlFv?

Generally, large technology companies start development of their chips of future generations well in advance. In some cases, it may take up to five years from the first phase to the release of the final erroneous device on the market. A19 Bionic and M5 processors are expected to be released in 2025.
If the producer goes to their mass production, the partnership also must work hard. According to the plan, Apple plans on using TSMCs 2nm process to make these processing machines. According to the source, trial production is already underway. Moreover, initial production batches of chips that are produced using the two nm process technology can only be reserved for Apple.
