Apple expands the differences between Pro and “non-Pro” iPhone models this year
Apple will reportedly equip the iPhone 14 Pro models with the 4nm A16 Bionic chipset, while the non-Pro phones will be able to reuse the 5nm A15 Bionic SoC that resides under the hood of all iPhone 13 handsets. This could help Apple widen the differences between the 2022 Pro and non-Pro models. Most consumers have no idea which chip powers their phone and most don’t care. By reusing the chip, Apple can make the price of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max more competitive.
On the Chinese social media app Weibo. glass panels were reportedly placed in front of the iPhone 14 models
We’ve seen reports that even if Apple reused the A15 Bionic chips on the non-Pro iPhone 14 phones, it could still rename them (as they call the A16 Bionic and the new 4nm SoC the A16 Pro). to give). Apple hopes this sleight of hand will take the sting out of paying a high price for a phone that reuses the latest-generation chipset for its customers.
Other differences include the replacement of the notch on the iPhone 14 Pro models with the “i-shaped” cutout for the FaceTime camera and the True Depth Camera; meanwhile, the cheaper non-professional models will keep the notch. Other improvements expected on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max include the 120Hz ProMotion display and 48MP Wide camera on the premium models.
While the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 13 mini have failed to gain traction, it will be interesting to see how well the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max sells. It could bring a lot of sales from those who have always wanted the largest iPhone screen possible, but couldn’t afford the latest Pro Max unit.
They should also be there: the long-awaited AirPods Pro 2 and three Apple Watch models
According to the report, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max should cost $799 and $899 respectively. Storage options can be 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB of storage. The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max can be priced starting at $1,099 and $1,199 respectively. Storage options can be 256GB, 512GB, 1TB and possibly 2TB (although Apple typically makes such adjustments every two years, meaning a base option of 256GB and a maximum storage option of 2TB may not happen until 2023).
we could see that Apple will introduce three Apple Watch models in September, including the Apple Watch 8 (which is rumored to have flat sides again), a new budget timepiece of the Apple Watch SE and a brand new Extreme Edition that will compete with smartwatches designed to track outdoor sports and activities.
Also on the menu are the AirPods Pro 2. The long-awaited sequel to Apple’s premium TWS earbuds. The wearable can be delivered steal-free, includes next-generation Active Noise Cancellation and supports Lossless Audio. The AirPods Pro 2 may also support USB-C charging.
