Ahead of the launch, a new report has revealed that iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will feature 6GB of newer and faster RAM.
“The models are said to get a LPDDR5 RAM, whereas, the current series features 4GB of LPDDR4X RAM. The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max on the other hand, are said to feature 6GB of the older LPDDR4X RAM. LPDDR5 memory will give Pro-level iPhones better and more energy-efficient performance than that of the standard models,” BGR India reported.
Only the higher-end iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models are expected to be powered by the new “A16” chip. Known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo back in March said that the standard iPhone 14 models will retain the A15 chip.
Another report from MacRumors mentioned that some iPhone 14 components such as display panels are facing supply chain issues, but the analyst believes the issues will have a limited impact on upcoming mass production of iPhone 14 models, which are expected to be announced in September.
“The rising component costs and Apple’s determination to differentiate Pro and non-Pro iPhones, will see the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max increase to $1099 and $1199 respectively. Apple is also expected to replace the iPhone 13 mini with a Max version could lead to a price hike of about $300.
In terms of design, the camera bump on the 2022 high-end iPhone will be 4.17 mm thick, or 0.57 mm larger than the bump on the iPhone 13 Pro Max. The space that the bump occupies on the back of the iPhone will also increase in size by about five percent in each dimension, going from the current width of 35.01 mm to 36.73 mm and height of 36.24 mm to 38.21 mm to accommodate the new camera hardware.
