New split iPhone chip strategy has been tipped by Apple


Ming-Chi Kuo, a highly regarded Apple analyst, has published a blog post in which he asserts that Apple is making a significant adjustment in the way it thinks about mobile processors.

Kuo has stated once again that “The next A16 CPU will be exclusive to two iPhone 14 Pro/high-end variants,” which is something that we have heard from a variety of other sources in the past.

It is common knowledge that both the standard iPhone 14 and the brand-new iPhone 14 Max will have an A15 chip that is functionally equivalent to the one found in the iPhone 13, albeit possibly in a slightly improved version that has more RAM. Some people have even suggested that Apple would try to rename it as some type of A16 Bionic processor in order to make it appear as though it is an advance over the previous generation.

We had assumed that this was just a momentary hiccup. However, the new argument here is that this isn’t so. This appears to be the new normal for Apple’s smartphone line-up rather than a one-off response to the present perfect storm of supply chain concerns.

According to Kuo, the iPhone high-end models are expected to be the exclusive beneficiaries of the new CPU chip.

The sales of Apple’s Pro models are sure to rise as a result of this strategy.

It’s thought that Apple will switch to a smaller pill-shaped hole punch in place of the present slab on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, in addition to a new split iPhone chip strategy.

The new iPhone 14 range is scheduled to be released by Apple in September. Apple is likely to release a new ‘normal’-sized iPhone this year, replacing the departing iPhone Mini model.
