Apple announced at the Far Out event that the regular models of the iPhone 14 series will not be equipped with the company’s latest mobile processor, the A16. The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus use the A15 Bionic processor, which is the same processor that was used in the iPhone 13 series last year.
Based on the writing VergeThe A15 chip in the iPhone 14 series phones has seen minor changes and uses an additional core in the graphics unit. This is the first time since 2008 that Apple does not equip its flagship phones with its latest chip.
At the same time, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are equipped with A16 processor. According to Apple, the A16 consumes less energy than the A15 even when performing heavy processing. Of course, there are not many differences between the technical specifications of A16 and A15. A16, like A15 used in iPhone 14, uses a 6-core CPU unit, a 5-core GPU unit and a 16-core neural engine. The main difference between the A16 and the A15 is the use of better processing cores in the new chip. Unlike A15, which used 5nm lithography, A16 is based on 4nm lithography.
The decision to use the 2021 processor in the 2022 iPhones is not that surprising, as leakers have already predicted this. Ming Chi Ku And Mark Garman Both of which have a brilliant history, some time ago they said that various factors motivate Apple to use A15 in standard iPhone 14 models. One of these is the similarities between the A15 and A16, and the other is the lack of chips around the world.
Keep in mind that the use of the A15 chip does not mean that the processing power of the standard iPhones of the new generation is weak. A15 doesn’t have a competitor on the same level in the Android world right now. Even the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, which is considered the most powerful chip in Android mobiles, is weaker than the A15. Those who are looking to buy iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus should not worry about the processor of the phone.
Both iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus are equipped with a 12-megapixel main camera and, like the other two phones in the American market, they are offered without a physical SIM card slot. iPhone 14 will arrive on September 16, 2022 (25 September 1401), but the release date of iPhone 14 Plus is set for October 7, 2022 (15 October 1401). These two phones are priced at $799 and $899, respectively.
