Earlier this year, known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo speculated or gave a hint that the upcoming Apple iPhone Non-Pro models and Pro models will have a separate chipset category. It indicates that the only iPhone 14 Pro models will have the latest Apple A16 Bionic chipset out of the box. Whereas the standard iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Mini models might have the older A15 Bionic chipset.
Previously, Apple offers the same generation chipset to all of its latest iPhone models irrespective of standard, Pro, Max, Pro Max, and Mini variants. But it seems that the flagship and latest generation of Apple processors will only come with the iPhone 14 Pro model next time and the same legacy may continue from then. We’re not completely sure about it. But the hint from a popular analyst shouldn’t go wrong.
Well, if that actually happens from the upcoming iPhone 14 Pro model then the interested fans will have to spend extra bucks to get the Pro and Pro Max model to have the latest generation Apple A16 Bionic processor. That seems a monopoly market strategy from a buyer’s point of view, we guess. But the user will also be able to get more optimized and powerful performance from the latest chipset whatsoever.
While the one-generation older Apple A15 Bionic chipset on the Apple iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Mini, and iPhone 14 Max models might not be a deal-breaker for everyone. It’s because the Apple A15 Bionic SoC is currently the latest flagship chipset and running on all Apple iPhone 13 series models. So, there wouldn’t be an issue with the performance or optimization in daily life usage even with the A15 Bionic chip on iPhone 14.
The upcoming iPhone 14 Pro models are most likely to have significant camera updates as well as the change in the notch design after a couple of years since the release of the iPhone X. This time the iPhone 14 series may come with 6GB of RAM, a 48MP primary rear camera, and a punch-hole & a pill cutout design for the front camera.
