Rumors Only the iPhone 14 Pro will get the new

Rumors: Only the iPhone 14 Pro will get the new Apple A16 chip – the regular iPhone 14 will cost last year’s Apple A15

Well-known electronics market analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that Apple could deviate from the traditional scheme this year, implying that all new generation iPhones will use new processors. According to the analyst, not all iPhone 14s will get Apple’s flagship A16 chip. Instead, half of the models will use the current Apple A15, which debuted in the iPhone 13.

The 6.1-inch iPhone 14 and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max are reported to be built on the Apple A15 platform. At the same time, RAM for new products will be increased to 6 GB (from 4 GB on the current iPhone 13). The new Apple A16 will be reserved for the flagships of the series – iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. It is worth noting that the new Pro models will also consume 6 GB.

If the forecast is confirmed, this will be an unexpected decision for the company – because new chips have been installed in every new iPhone generation for around a decade. The last time the manufacturer resorted to releasing smartphones on different chips was in 2013, when the iPhone 5S received the A7, and the cheaper iPhone 5C received the A6, launched a year earlier. It should be borne in mind that even the characteristics of mobile platforms with identical names can differ – for example, the A15 chipset for the iPhone 13 Pro has more GPU cores than the A15 for the “base” iPhone 13.

In addition, according to several sources, the iPhone 14 series will only have models with screens of two sizes – 6.1 and 6.7 inches, and the regular and Pro versions differ in the specifications of displays, cameras, and possibly processors and graphics accelerators . . .

The release of the new iPhone should take place in autumn.
