Breaking: iPhone 14 will use old A15 chipset, 14 Pro to use A16!

New Reports Cleared that iPhone 14 will use A15 chipset, 14 Pro to use A16! Back in March, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reported that the first two variants of iPhone 14 will sport an old A15 chip while only the iPhone 14 Pro models will equip a new A16 Bionic chipset. A new report from TrendForce corroborates with this information.

It is worth mentioning, the iPhone 14 series to be launched by Apple in 2H22 will feature four new models. Most notably and unlike prior offerings, only the latest processors are employed in the Pro series. In addition to taking into account terminal pricing strategy, this can also highlight differences in market positioning. As rising inflation changes consumer behaviour, this type of product positioning is expected to attract more buyers.

iPhones 14 Series Upcoming Chipsets

In reports by Trend Force it’s mentioned that “unlike prior offerings, only the latest processors are employed in the Pro series,” of the iPhone 14. While the iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 13 used the A15 chip, it did so with 4GB of RAM and a four-core GPU while the iPhone 13 Pro models used the A15 chip with 6GB RAM and a five-core GPU. It is believed that the 14 and 14 Max will use the latter chipset with more RAM and GPU power.

This hardware decision is likely due to industry-wide supply chain shortages of chipsets and thus Apple would be unable to provide the newest chipset to its lower-tier models. Apple would rather focus its supply chain on producing the more expensive Pro models.

Apple’s A15 chip is no slouch with current competing chipsets and having entry-tier iPhones with the chip will certainly not a bad deal.


iPhone 14 Series specifications:

Apple is preparing up to launch iPhone 14 series in mid September. The upcoming iPhone 14 series will come with several improvements, including a new design for the Pro model, a better camera, and more. The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are also said to come with a taller profile and better camera module to fit the new internals.

Both the Pro models of the iPhone 14 series would be equipped with a triple rear camera setup housing a 48MP wide, 12MP ultra-wide, and telephoto lens. The upcoming iPhone 14 series would support an 8K video. The Apple iPhone 14 Pro model will come with 8GB of RAM and a 120Hz refresh rate display. However, the iPhone 13 model devices are available with a storage option of 128GB.


iPhone 14 Series Display

Chinese display maker BOE tied up with apple for the screens of its regular iPhone 14 variant. As per report, the contract is worth CNY 50 million and it comprises 25% of OLED displays, designated for iPhone 14 smartphone.

LG and Samsung are expected to supply panels for bigger iPhone 14 Max and the iPhone Pro duo and BOE will provide only 6.1-inch panels. BOE has been manufacturing replacement versions, as well as panels for previous-gen iPhones and this would be first time when it will be providing panels for current-generation iPhones.

The company was previously unsuccessful in supplying OLED screens for the iPhone 12 series. Besides the unannounced iPhone 14 series, BOE is also readying panels for new iPads and MacBooks.

BOE will reportedly supply Apple with OLED LTPO displays for the higher-end models of the iPhone 15 line-up in 2023. According to The Elec, the Chinese display maker will be producing and supplying OLED LTPO panels to the Cupertino based giant next year. BOE is looking to expand its ability to manufacture OLED LTPO displays, which enable a variable refresh rate of up to 120Hz for iPhone 15 Pro.
