Apple will unveil the Apple iPhone 14 series later this year. The company, this time around, is expected to launch four models under the iPhone 14 series—the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Now, noted Apple Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has revealed that Apple will use its upcoming A16 Bionic chip only on Pro series devices.
This means that only the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max will be powered by the A16 Bionic chipset. On the other hand, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will make use of last year’s A15 Bionic chipset.
Kuo further reveals 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. Whereas, the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Max will retain LPDDR4X RAM.

This certainly is a new strategy, but it is not at all surprising. As of now, the Cupertino-based tech giant uses the A15 Bionic processor on all four iPhone 13 models. However, the GPU on the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini is weaker, as it has one less core, as compared to the iPhone 13 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro Max. Apple might be adapting to this new strategy to push buyers to go with Pro models.
Kuo further says that the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Pro will come with a 6.1-inch display. Whereas, the iPhone 14 Max and the iPhone 14 Pro Max will feature a 6.7-inch display. 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 display.
Apple is said to discontinue the Mini models of the iPhone 14 series. To fill the gap, the company will introduce a large sized model—the iPhone 14 Max. What do you think of Apple using last year’s A15 Bionic chip for the upcoming iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max? Do let us know down in the comments section.
