iPhone 14: despite its older chip, it would have power to spare

Even if the iPhone 14 should not be equipped with the new A16 Bionic chip, Apple would still provide some new features to improve its performance.

The iPhone 14 and 14 Max should not take advantage of Apple’s latest A16 Bionic chips to leave exclusivity to the Pro models. This little music accompanies the rumors of the next iPhone for a few months now.

Since the 16 chip advertises itself as very close to the A15, the power difference shouldn’t be significant. We learn today through a tweet from leaker ShrimpApplePro that the gap should be even smaller.

An iPhone 14 more powerful than the 13

The leaker writes: Despite using *some* old components, the non-pro iPhone 14 still outperforms the iPhone 13 series. “Fortunately, the leaker details a little more what he means by this. He implies the new iPhone would have a new modem as well as a new internal design, as well as other changes not detailed in his tweet.

Among the likely changes,Mac Rumorsevokes the addition of 2 GB of additional RAM, offering 6 GB.

Towards a lean iPhone 14 this year

A decision that could probably be motivated by the fact that the iPhone 14 currently appears very close to the iPhone 13 on paper. Indeed, most of the expected novelties focus on the Pro models, such as the disappearance of the Notch, the new chip, a new photo unit with a 48 megapixel sensor…

In short, a little boost to give an impression of change on the basic model is welcome, it goes without saying. We can also mention the appearance of a Max model, which would make it possible to offer a large slab size without having to pay the high price of a Pro model if one is not interested in its additions.
