The iPhone 14 Could Still Get A Performance Boost Over The iPhone 13 Despite A15 Chip
Apple’s upcoming iPhone 14 could still be faster than the outgoing iPhone 13, despite using the same A15 Bionic chip.
It’s been strongly rumored that Apple will put the same A15 chip into the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max, deciding to save the new A16 chips for the higher-end iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
That decision had led some to expect that Apple would be consigning the iPhone 14 models to the same performance as the outgoing iPhone 13. And while the current iPhones are not slow by any means, it seems that the iPhone 14 could still benefit from a speed boost.
That’s after anonymous Twitter leaker ShrimpApplePro shared details on what they expect from the upgrade.
“Despite using some old hardware, iPhone 14 non-pro still have some overall performance boost over the iPhone 13 series,” the leaker said via Twitter. They went on to suggest that a new cellular modem and other improvements could result in speedier performance. It’s also thought that the iPhone 14 will get 2GB more RAM than the iPhone 13, again helping to improve performance.
Apple is expected to announce a new round of iPhones this September, with the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro coming in 6.1-inch sizes. The iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max will be 6.7-inch devices, with no mini iPhone this time around.
