The A15 chip in the iPhone 14 would be different from the one in the iPhone 13

The A15 Bionic chip, which Apple designed, is reported to be well-equipped in the iPhone 14 and 14 Max (Plus), the two least expensive versions in the lineup. It appears, though, that the chip is distinct from the one that drives the iPhone 13 in some ways. Small programme improvements would be made.

Apple will not always utilise the same chip on all iPhone 14 models. The Cupertino firm would save the new SoC A16 Bionic for the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max, the two premium models, according to reports that have surfaced recently.

The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max (Plus) should be content with an A15 Bionic chip on their end. The devices would receive the same chipset as the iPhone 13 and would be less expensive than the two Pro variants. With this strategy, Apple would aim to lower production costs, which are rapidly increasing, while increasing the distinctions between the high-end and regular versions.

The A15 processor of the iPhone 14 would be different from that of the iPhone 13, according to information obtained by our colleagues from the Wall Street Journal. Would the Californian team have enhanced the SoC’s functionality to be used in the iPhone 14?

” Base models will have an upgraded version of the current A15 processor ,” the Wall Street Journal claims, citing ” people familiar ” with the company’s plans.

Unfortunately, the media fails to mention the changes made to the SoC programme. Rumors suggest that the newly updated A15 SoC will include a more potent modem. Apple allegedly improved the graphics capability of the processor, according to another claim.

For the record, Apple released two A15 chip iterations in 2021. Compared to the A15 in the iPhone 13 Pro, which has 5 graphics cores, the version built into the iPhone 13/13 mini had 4 GPU cores.
