iPhone 14 with performance boost – despite the “old” chip
The question of Apple’s choice of chips has been one of the biggest rumored topics of upcoming iPhones for months. Industry experts such as Mark Gurman (Bloomberg) and supplier insider Ming-Chi Kuo have already predicted the two-pronged Apple strategy already mentioned – specifically: A16 chip for iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, retention of the A15 chip for iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 max. What initially looks like a performance stagnation of the two cheaper models could ultimately offer performance advantages compared to the iPhone 13 – including multitasking and mobile communications. This emerges from a tweet by the leaker ShrimpApplePro.
iPhone 14: Optimized hardware design, more RAM, new modem
iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max should therefore – despite the “old” chip – provide general performance improvements in various areas. The reason for this is an optimized internal hardware design, which leads to efficiency advantages and performance increases. In addition, Apple is rumored to be using more RAM than the iPhone 13 – instead of 4 GB, the iPhone 14 is said to have 6 GB. Multitasking applications would benefit from this.
The company is also using a new cellular modem that – depending on the usage scenario – provides more LTE and 5G performance. Buyers of the iPhone 14 will therefore receive a chip from the latest iPhone generation, but can still expect a performance boost. The A16 chip of the iPhone 14 Pro still offers significantly higher performance.
