iPhone 14 new strategy:A16 processor only for iPhone 14 pro

Once Apple’s spring conference is over, the next blockbuster mobile phone product will have to wait until the autumn conference in September, when the iPhone 14 series will be officially unveiled.

By convention, Apple’s stocking cycle will start production a long time in advance, and according to the latest news from Apple’s first brother, Ming-Chi Kuo, this year’s iPhone 14 series will adopt an unprecedented dual-core strategy.


Among them, the two iPhone 14 standard models will maintain the A15 chip of the current iPhone 13, while the iPhone 14 Pro will be upgraded to the A16 chip.

In this regard, digital blogger @Mobile ChipDaren said that Apple has stockpiled chips for the iPhone 14 series, and is preparing to produce 50 million A16 chips and 50 million A15 chips. Currently, there is a total of 100 million.

In fact, in December last year, a blogger revealed that not all iPhone 14 series models will be upgraded to the A16 processor, and the iPhone 14 will continue to use the A15 chip of the iPhone 13.


He also said that the stocking of the 4nm A16 chip in 2022 is only one-third of the A15 processor in 2021, indicating that only one iPhone 14 will use the A16 processor. Among them, Apple’s internal code name for the A16 processor is Crete, and the code name for the A15 processor is Ellis.

In addition, due to the adoption of a completely different product strategy, the naming of this year’s iPhone will also change. The Pro version will be named iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, and the non-Pro version will be named iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max.

The iPhone 14 mini will disappear completely, replaced by an enlarged version of the iPhone 14 Max, which should be the same size as the iPhone 14 Pro Max, but identical in configuration to the standard iPhone 14. This is the first time Apple has introduced a low price version of the large-screen mobile phone.
