The new non-Pro iPhone 14s will come with the same A15 Bionic chip used last year.
According to Minchikuo, a well-known Apple analyst, the latest A Series chipset, the A16 Bionic Chip, will be used only for the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, while the non-Pro iPhone 14 and 14 Max will come with the A15 Bionic chipset used in the 2021 iPhone 13 series.
Another difference between the Pro model and the non-Pro model could be the RAM type. According to Minchikuo, all four devices in the iPhone 14 Lineup will use only 6GB of RAM, but the Pro model comes with LPDDR5 4x faster and up to 30% more energy efficient, while the other two models can use LPDDR 4X.
In terms of RAM, the current iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 13 use 4GB of RAM, while the two higher Pro models have 6GB. Earlier rumors suggested that the iPhone 14 Pro would have the same 8GB of RAM as the Samsung Galaxy S22, but this contradicts Minchikuo.
As for screen size, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro will come in 6.1-inch sizes, while the iPhone 14 Max and Pro Max will come in 6.7-inch sizes. The most compact mini model can be considered the end of the iPhone 13 Mini. Apple used to use the same chipset for every new iPhone in the past, so it’s interesting to see if it will be redesigned and upgraded this year.
