Apple’s iPhone 14 series will have four smartphones with a big difference between the “Pro” and regular models in terms of specs, a well-known analyst said. Apple is being proposed to put the new A16 Bionic SoCs in the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, while the non-Pro models – rumored to be called the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max – will sport last year’s A15 Bionic chipset. Previous reports have suggested that this year’s iPhone 14 models will also differ significantly from those of recent years in terms of design.
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo tweeted that Apple will launch four new iPhones in the second half of 2022, which could be called iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro are said to come with 6.1-inch displays, while the iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max are said to come with 6.7-inch displays.
In another tweet, Kuo said that only iPhone 14 Pro models will be powered by the new A16 Bionic SoC. iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max, on the other hand, will borrow the A15 Bionic SoC that debuted in the iPhone 13 series last year. Additionally, all four models will “probably ship with 6GB [of] RAM”. This is consistent with an older leak. However, a recent report suggests that the Pro phones may get 8GB of RAM. Kuo also said that the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will have LPDDR5 RAM and iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will get LPDDR4X RAM.
Citing an analyst, a previous report had said that the iPhone 14 family will feature Apple’s ProMotion displays to deliver a refresh rate of up to 120Hz. However, another analyst claimed that the company will continue to offer the 120Hz displays only on the Pro variants of the iPhone 14 series. The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are said to come with pill-shaped hole cutouts.
