iPhone 14 could lose in A16 chip upgrade, analyst claims

With a new iPhone SE launch out of the way, all eyes are on Apple’s next iPhone 14 models, but they may have a lot more in common with the iPhone 13 than previously anticipated.

Renowned Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says that the standard models, including the iPhone 14 and the rumored iPhone 14 Max, will keep the A15 Bionic on its predecessor, while the Pro models will be equipped with a new A16 chip. That doesn’t mean the stock models don’t get a boost in processing power, though.

Spotted by MacRumors, Kuo’s tweet states that all four models come with 6GB of RAM, with the iPhone 14 models having LPDDR 4X memory and the iPhone 14 Pro models having LPDDR 5 memory. The iPhone 13 Pro models already come with 6GB of RAM, but the standard models will get a bigger upgrade as the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini have 4GB of RAM.
