Taiwanese research firm TrendForce said in this year’s iPhone 14 series, “only Pro models will have an A16 chip.”
“Apple’s iPhone 14 series will be available in four models this year, but unlike previous products, only the Pro series will have the latest processors,” TrendForce said on June 1. It is described in the report.
This information is consistent with leaks from prominent analyst Minchey Kuo, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, and anonymous leaker Apple Leaks Pro. They all said that the standard model of the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Max will have the same A15 chip as the iPhone 13.
“Apple is trying to differentiate the Pro series from the entry-level series,” TrendForce said. The entry model of the iPhone 14 has the same appearance as the iPhone 13, with the same notch, the same generation chip, and the same rear camera, but the Pro model has a redesigned camera with significantly enhanced next-generation chips and features. Is supposed to be installed.
And Apple plans to raise the price of the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max significantly, with the prevailing theory that it will be $ 1099 and $ 1199. Meanwhile, the standard model iPhone 14 is expected to remain priced at $ 799 and the iPhone 14 Max to be $ 899.
Apple expects next year’s iPhone 15 series to be USB-C compatibleSo, I think it’s a wise decision to forgo this year’s iPhone 14 or make it a Pro model if you want to buy it.
