Macs, iPads, and iPhones will use "Made in America" chips from 2024

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) began building its first plant in the United States a year after announcing its intention to create a fabrication facility. US President Joe Biden and Apple CEO Tim Cook joined Dr. Mark Liu, CEO of TSMC, to formally open the company’s first plant in Pheonix, Arizona, which will manufacture “Made in America” chips.

In August, Biden enacted the historic $280 billion Chips and Science Act, which includes $52 billion to advance domestic semiconductor production.

The Chips and Science Act is the Biden administration’s wager to encourage chipmakers to change direction, construct fabs in the US, and reduce their reliance on China.

“These chips will power iPhones and MacBooks, as Tim Cook can attest. Apple had to buy all the advanced chips from overseas. Now we’re going to do more of their supply chain here at home,” Joe Biden said at the event.

According to Cook, Apple will be one of the first manufacturers to employ the chips produced at the Pheonix fabrication plant, which is expected to start producing in 2024.

“Today is only the beginning. Today we are combining TSMC’s expertise with the unrivaled ingenuity of American workers. We are investing in a stronger, brighter future. We are planting a seed in the Arizona desert. And at Apple, we are proud to help nurture its growth,” Tim Cook added.

By increasing its $12 billion investment to $40 billion, TSMC declared that it will establish a second facility in the US by 2026.

No information was available regarding the quantity of “Made in America” chips that Apple would purchase. Still, the Arizona facility will manufacture 4nm, which could be utilized in iPhones, iPads, and Macs.

“When you stop and think about it, it’s extraordinary what chip technology can achieve. And now, thanks to the hard work of so many people, these chips can be proudly stamped ‘Made in America,'” Cook said.
