While predictions continue that Apple will keep its new A16 processor exclusive to the iPhone 14 Pro models, a new rumor says the regular iPhone 14 will use an “improved” A15.
It has long been known that Apple will have different processors in the regular and pro versions of the iPhone 14. It is believed that only the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will get the latest A16 processor, and it is believed that this means the iPhone 14 will stay on last year’s A15.
A new and extremely limited report claims that this may not be entirely correct. According to the Wall Street Journalalthough the iPhone 14 and what can be called the iPhone 14 Plus will indeed use the A15 processor, it will not be the same as the one in the iPhone 13 series.
“The base models will get an improved version of the current A15 processor,” the publication said in total. More details and information about the origin of the report are missing.
The iPhone 14 has been reported to move to 6GB of RAM, but the Wall Street Journal‘s report suggests more will change.
If the reports about reserving the A16 processor for the Pro models are correct, this is Apple’s first time doing this. A selling point, as well as one thing that made choosing an iPhone model difficult, used to be that every phone in the lineup each year had the same processor.
