In September this year, Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 14 series globally. Whenever a new iPhone series arrives, users can see a next-generation SoC. With the iPhone 11 series it was A13 Bionic, the iPhone 12 series it was A14 Bionic, and the iPhone 13 series was powered by the A15 Bionic.
The common thing for all these iPhone series was that they were all powered by the same SoC if they belonged to the same series. For example, whether it’s the high-end iPhone 13 Pro Max or the iPhone 13 mini, both were powered by the same A15 Bionic. But this time, Apple will create a major difference between the normal models and the Pro models.
iPhone 14 Pro models will feature more powerful chips
Note that nothing is confirmed and set in stone; this is all based on leaks and rumours. According to the leaks, the iPhone 14 series will consist of four devices – iPhone 14, iPhone Max, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
The Pro models will be powered by the A16 Bionic, but the normal models which are iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will carry the A15 Bionic.
In terms of price, the iPhone 14 might be the same price as the iPhone 13 right now, but the “Max” models might cost $100 more, according to a report from 91Mobiles. It’s not like A15 Bionic is slow or outdated. But in front of the A16 Bionic SoCs, normal models may seem a bit weak.
Nonetheless, the iPhone 14 series is expected to bring plenty of new features to the table. First, we could finally see Apple ditch the notch and accept the punch-hole system that other Android companies have been using for a very long time. In addition to this, all iPhone 14 models can support 120Hz refresh rate support.
