The A17 will be used in the premium entry in the iPhone lineup slated for release in 2023, it added.

The current iPhone model has an A15 processor chip and in the recent Apple launch event, the company said iPhone 14 Pro models will also have the same.

The chipmaker controls about 54 percent of the global market for contractually produced chips, supplying firms including Apple and Qualcomm Inc.
