According to rumours, the iPhone 14 and 14 Pro will have separate two-tier chip system. This is the first time Apple’s phones aren’t equally speedy. A Weibo source thinks next year’s iPhone 15 will be the same.
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has indicated “the newest processing chip will only be in high-end iPhone models” This new assertion gains credibility.
Only the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are believed to contain a new chipset, which will probably be named the A16 Bionic. The iPhone 14 and rumoured iPhone 14 Max will feature the iPhone 13’s A15 processor.
When the iPhone 15 comes out in 2023, the A16 processor from the iPhone 14 Pro will go into the normal models, while Apple will develop a new A17 chip for the iPhone 15 Pro. Apple has a few months before finalising the iPhone 15 design, so its intentions could alter. This plan fits everything we know about the iPhone 14.
We haven’t decided if Apple’s alleged two-tier processor plan is good. On one hand, your “new” iPhone may have a 12-month-old chip. Keeping the price down may not important to the average customer who wants to upgrade for other reasons.
Apple should keep the base iPhone models affordable if it plans to raise the price of the iPhone 14 Pro. Apple’s massive performance lead over the finest Android phones implies the iPhone 15 will likely surpass its rivals even next year.
