In the fourth quarter of 2020, Apple reportedly used 100% of TSMC's 5nm process to manufacture the A14 Bionic, but reportedly used only 80% in the first quarter of 2021. It was thought that this decline in usage was due to low demand for the iPhone 12 series, but Kuo argued that it was not the result of the decline in demand.

It will be a number that greatly exceeds.
