Apple iPhone 14 may still use A15 Bionic chip, Pro models move to A16


Apple is expected to announce the 14 series in or around September and now a new report suggests that only the 14 Pro models will have the “A16” chip, while the standard 14 models will retain the A15 Bionic chip from the iPhone 13.


According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro and the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max will get the A16 chip, while the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 and the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max will retain the same A15 chip from the iPhone 13 series, reports MacRumors.





Kuo believes all models will have 6GB of memory, the Pro models will use LPDDR5 and the non-Pro will use LPDDR 4X.


The upcoming iPhone 14 Pro models will feature both hole-punch and pill-shaped cutouts near the top of the display. The hole is believed to be for the Face ID dot projector, while the pill-shaped cutout will supposedly house the front camera as well as Face ID infrared camera at a minimum.


The Pro models would come with a big camera upgrade.


Current Pro iPhones ship with a 12MP camera on board. However, iPhone 14 Pro models will feature a 48MP camera.


Apple has reportedly advised major US carriers to prepare for the launch of eSIM-only smartphones by September this year.


It is possible that Apple might remove the physical SIM card slot starting with some iPhone 14 models, rather than some iPhone 15 models as originally rumoured.
