For Apple, this year they may widen the gap between different versions of the iPhone 14, so as to obtain better profits. According to the latest news, in the iPhone 14 product line in 2022, Apple may only be equipped with the new A16 Bionic chip for the iPhone14 Pro/Pro Max models.
If the rumors are reliable, Apple may extend the A15 Bionic for another year to use it for the more entry-level iPhone 14 Standard Edition/iPhone14 Max, the two “non-Pro” models.
However, in terms of memory (RAM), the two “non-Pro” iPhone14 models may be upgraded from the standard 4GB of the iPhone 13 to a higher 6GB.
There are opinions that Apple’s move is to better divide ordinary iPhone models and Pro derivative models, but experts say that it is because the performance of the A-series processors is too strong, which makes them confident to place orders for new energy. Pick a bunch of Android flagships.
The A15 Bionic chipset in the iPhone14 is rumored to receive some mild upgrades, increasing the GPU of the Pro lineup from 4 to 5 cores compared to the A15 SoC used in the iPhone 13/13 mini models.
A well-known new leaker claims that the A16 Bionic on the iPhone 14 Pro will use TSMC’s 5nm process, rather than immediately jumping to the latest 4nm process already used by competitors.
