Apple May Use A16 Chip for iPhone 14's Pro Models Only

After announcing the iPhone SE 2022 just a few days ago, along with the new iPad Air, a new Apple chip for the Macs, and the Mac Studio, Apple is gearing up for the September event, which will see the launch of the new iPhone 14 series.

Apple always keeps upgrading its processor chip in every new iPhone launch. However, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo the upcoming iPhone 14, Apple may still use A15 Bionic Chip and A16 Bionic Chip for iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max Models.

If true, this would be the first time in almost a decade that the company has divided the flagship phone’s specs in terms of processor type. In 2013, Apple had released the iPhone 5S with the A7 chip, while the cheaper 5C model came with the year-old A6 chipset.

Kuo also suggests that the iPhone 14 Max and Pro Max versions feature a 6.7-inch display, while the iPhone 14 and Pro models come with a 6.1-inch. Apple would also mark the first time Apple has offered the Pro-size display in a cheaper, non-Pro device.

Previous leaks had stated that the Pro Max model would feature an OLED display provided by LG. However, the company would be differentiating models, purely by specifications, such as the camera and the 120Hz ProMotion display.

In September’s Event, Apple may also launch New MacBook Air & MacBook Pro, which is powered with M2.
