Noted Apple analyst Kuo thinks only iPhone 14 Pro will feature new A16 chip, A15 in rest of lineup

It’s been a few months since Apple’s iPhone 13 is out, and already people are clamoring for the next addition to the iPhone family. Well, you have to wait until this fall for Apple to announce the next generation iPhone (and a longer wait to get your hands on it). However, you can take a look at what might be included in the upcoming iPhone 14, courtesy of renowned Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

According to Kuo, the upcoming iPhone 14 models will have upgraded powerful chips. It looks like the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max will be released with the same A15 chip found in the iPhone 13 lineup. On the other hand, the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro more powerful and the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max will be equipped with the more powerful A16 chip.

All four models are likely to come with a 6GB RAM upgrade (instead of 4GB). While the more expensive iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will come with LPDDR 5X memory, the other two more affordable smartphones will come with 4X LPDDT memory. LPDDR5 is faster, consumes less power (up to 30%) than LPDDR4X and offers up to 50% improved data speed.

One thing to note is that there is no iPhone 14 (in Kuo’s list) with a 5.4-inch screen. Does this mean that Apple is abandoning the “mini” size and will continue to do so in the future? Time will tell us.

However, you should note that these have not been confirmed by Apple, the maker of the iPhone, and therefore are not set in stone. It may well be that not all iPhone 14 models come with different chipsets.

This is certainly not the first time that Apple has rolled out iPhone models with different chipsets for the standard iPhone and iPhone Pro models. The Cupertino-headquartered tech giant had followed a similar path when it rolled out the iPhone 5S and 5C. It was in 2013.

Apple, for its part, will officially unveil the iPhone 14 lineup (along with their names) this fall, so all you have to do is wait until then.
