Apple iPhone 14 may not get a chip upgrade this year
(Pocket Ribbon) – Apple is expected to announce four models of the iPhone 14 later this year, but the latest report claims all four models may not get the same treatment when it comes to internal upgrades.
Industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo tweeted claim that the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max can stay on the A15 Bionic chipset, while the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max see an upgrade to the A16 Bionic processor. It is also claimed that the RAM will differ between the models.
According to Kuo, all four iPhone 14 models will get 6GB of RAM support, although the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will likely ship with LPDDR 4X, while the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will likely offer LRDDR 5.
Only two Pro models would upgrade to the A16 processor, while the 14 & 14 Max would remain the A15. All four new models will likely ship with 6GB of RAM, the difference being LPDDR 5 (14 Pro & 14 Pro Max) versus LPDDR 4X (14 & 14 Max). https://t.co/tHcszIz6gX

This is a gaming phone designed from the ground up for the absolute best possible performance.
Kuo gives no details about other predictions in his tweet, although previous rumors have suggested the iPhone mini will be ditched in favor of a larger standard iPhone 14 — hence the names iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max. It is rumored that the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro will have a 6.1-inch screen, while the Max models will have a 6.7-inch screen.
Of course, nothing has been confirmed yet, and won’t be for quite some time. However, you can read all the rumors about the iPhone 14 models in our separate post.
