Ming-Chi Kuo, an Apple analyst, reported in March that entry-level variants of the iPhone 14 will have an A15 Bionic chip. Only iPhone 14 Pro models will feature a new A16 Bionic processor. trend strength has just published a new report which confirms this information.
trend strength An industry report says the iPhone 14 Pro Series uses the latest processors, unlike previous offerings. The iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 13 had the A15 Bionic chipset, but they only had 4GB of RAM with a quad-core GPU. The iPhone 13 Pro models featured the A15 chip with 6GB of RAM with a five-core GPU. The 14 and 14 Max will likely use the A15 chip with more RAM and higher GPU power.
This material decision is likely due to shortages in the industry’s supply chain. Apple would not be able to provide the latest chipset for its lower tier models. Apple prefers to focus its supply chain on Pro models.
Whatever the reason, Apple’s new A15 chip is no match for today’s chipsets. Entry-level iPhones with the chip won’t be a deal-breaker.
