There have been rumours recently that the non-Pro iPhone 14 models and the iPhone 14 Pro models have very different designs and specifications. There is now a new report online that is in agreement with the previous reports.
It was reported last week that the iPhone 14 and 14 Max would continue to use the Apple A15 Bionic processor, but the 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max would use the as-yet-unannounced Apple A16 Bionic processor.
Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst for Apple, has now provided more information about the use of different chips. According to him, the difference in processors between the non-Pro and Pro models of the iPhone is most likely the result of a marketing or financial decision.
In Ming-Chi Kuo’s opinion, the availability of TSMC chips isn’t a problem. Cupertino, California-based tech giant Apple may be using older generation chips in the non-Pro iPhones in order to keep costs down, or they may be trying to create more differentiation between the non-Pro and Pro iPhones.
Despite the fact that all iPhone 14 models will have 6GB of RAM, the non-Pro models will have LPDDR4X RAM, reports claim. However, the Pro models will have LPDDR5 RAM, which is a technical difference and has an impact on the operational speed.
For those who don’t know, Apple is expected to release four iPhone models this year: the iPhone 14, the iPhone 14 Max, the iPhone 14 Pro, and the iPhone 14 Pro Max. The 14 and 14 Pro have a 6.1-inch screen, but the 14 Max and 14 Pro Max have a 6.7-inch screen.
