Only iPhone 14 Pro models will have an “A16” chip, while standard iPhone 14 models will keep the iPhone 13’s A15 Bionic chip, according to insightful Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

iPhone 14 Mock Pill and Thumb Slot
In a tweet, Kuo said that the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro‌ and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro‌ Max will get the A16 chip, while the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 and 6.7-inch iPhone 14. Max will retain the same A15 chip from the ‌iPhone 13‌ lineup.

The two lower-cost iPhone models that keep the same chip as the previous year could be a major new differentiator between the standard and “Pro” iPhone‌ models. Going forward, it seems reasonable that Apple would introduce a new chip only with the “Pro” models, before later moving on to the two cheaper ‌ iPhone models the following year.

Kuo added that all four iPhone 14 models will likely come with 6GB of memory, with the standard ‌iPhone 14‌ models containing LPDDR 4X memory and ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ models containing LPDDR 5 memory.

Currently, the ‌iPhone 13‌ mini and iPhone 13‌ feature 4GB of memory, while the iPhone 13 Pro and ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌ Max feature 6GB. Those amounts are unchanged from the iPhone 12 lineup. For the ‌iPhone 14‌ lineup, Kuo suggests that all models will have 6GB of RAM, but the iPhone 14 Pro‌ and iPhone 14 Pro‌ Max’ LPDDR5 memory will be up to up to faster One and a half times more energy efficient by up to 30 percent.

Kuo’s claim contradicts a rumor from Jeff Pu of Haitong International Securities, which suggested that the ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ models would have 8GB of RAM, the same amount as the Samsung Galaxy S22 models. However, Pu has a mixed track record with Apple rumors. For example, he accurately claimed that 16-inch MacBook Pro and iPad Pro models with tiny LED screens will be launched in 2021, but he wasn’t wrong about HomePods with the launch of 3D sensor cameras in 2019. That could spark a RAM rumor 8GB is now in question that Kuo, a more established Apple analyst with a better track record, claims the opposite.
