Leaked Images Show What Could Be The A14 RAM That Will Power The iPhone 12
If all goes well we expect Apple to announce the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro in September or October, so we’re only weeks away from an announcement.
We’re starting to see more leaks as we edge closer to the big day, with one well-connected Twitter leaker now sharing images of what they say is the RAM that will be part of the A14 system-on-chip.
The A14 is what will likely power the new 2020 iPhones and the images show the RAM that normally sit atop the main processor. And while there’s nothing of particular interest to look at here – beyond the fact it exists – it’s notable that the manufacturing date appears to point to April.
W don’t know too much about the Apple A14 chip other than it will surely be faster than the A13 that powers the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro. It’s making use of the 5nm manufacturing process for the first time as well, likely improving battery management and how much heat it creates in the process.
Apple would normally announce new iPhones in September and ship a week later, but that might not be the case this time around.
The coronavirus pandemic has impacted Apple’s normal design and prototyping processes and that might in turn push everything back a few weeks. Some rumors have October as the launch window this time around.
