One would have thought that the iPhone 14 and 14 Plus (the same smartphone with a 6.7-inch screen, compared to 6.1 for the previous one) would carry the same chip. Aside from the iPhone 5C in 2012, which recycled the A6 processor from the iPhone 5, Apple doesn’t normally differentiate between ranges and offers the same processor on all of its latest iPhones.
This year, however, things would change, and the iPhone 14 would offer an Apple A15 Bionic SoC. However, the latest information in our possession indicates that Apple would not reuse the chip presented last year.
This new and improved A15 Bionic could bring some internal optimizations and modem performance improvements. The graphics power would also be improved compared to the iPhone 13 chip. As a reminder, its SoC offered 4 GPU cores, compared to 5 for the iPhone 13 Pro. The iPhone 14 could therefore take advantage of an additional GPU core this year to offer more graphics power to its users in applications and games. It would thus offer a significant improvement that would justify the purchase of a new smartphone, while making some savings on the cost of its components in the process.
