There has been no dearth of iPhone 14 Pro rumors in the past months. Now, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has put forward his latest thoughts on the upcoming iPhone. Kuo says that the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max could feature an A15 processor to differentiate it from the Pro models. The Apple analyst notes that TSMC’s capacity for supplying chips is not the reason behind Apple’s decision to opt for the A15 processor for the mid-range iPhone 14 series of phones. The Cupertino-based company could be making a marketing or finance-based move to differentiate the lower-end iPhone 14 phones from the top-end iPhone 14 Pro models.
In other words, it could help lower the price for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max. The new iPhone 14 series will have only the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max powered by the A16 Bionic chipset.
Past iPhone 14 Rumours
Just last week, Kuo revealed that all four iPhone 14 series smartphones will pack 6GB of RAM. However, only the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will get LPDDR5 RAM. On the other hand, the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Max will retain LPDDR4X RAM.

The Apple analyst speculated that the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Pro may feature 6.1-inch displays, while the iPhone 14 Max and the iPhone 14 Pro Max could come with 6.7-inch displays. The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will support 120Hz ProMotion display. However, the iPhone 14 and 14 Max will come with standard 60Hz refresh rate displays.
Additionally, the Cupertino-based company is likely to discontinue the mini models of the iPhone 14 series. It will introduce a large sized model—the iPhone 14 Max—to take its place. Apple is also reportedly still working on a satellite-powered emergency calling feature for the iPhone. It’s uncertain whether the technology will find its way into the new iPhone 14 series.
