Reputable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo made a hint that Apple’s next A16 Bionic chip would only be available in iPhone 14 Pro variants back in March of this year. According to Kuo, all non-Pro iPhones won’t include the most recent Apple A-series chipsets coming ahead and would instead rely on older CPUs.
iPhone Pro Models Will Only Get the Latest Chips.
The iPhone 14 series is expected to include four distinct models: the iPhone 14, the iPhone 14 Max, the iPhone 14 Pro, and the iPhone 14 Pro Max. According to prior rumors, the A16 processor may power the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, while the A15 chipset may power the iPhone 14 and 14 Max, as previously reported. It appears that Apple’s new business strategy is behind this decision, rather than a result of the ongoing chip shortage.
Apple’s latest processing chip will only be found in iPhone high-end models in the future, which means that a high proportion of iPhone high-end models will be shipped, which will benefit high-end camera component manufacturers, according to Kuo.
Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max shipments are expected to rise from 40 to 50 percent in the second half of the year to 55 to 60 percent, according to a report from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Apple’s camera component vendors, including as Sony, Largan, Alps, and LG Innotek, would benefit as well. This is because the Pro models are expected to have a 48MP main camera and a punch-hole-cum-pill design for the camera.
Apple appears to be taking advantage of the decoy effect by limiting the new A-series chipsets to the Pro versions. Whether or not people will go the extra mile to get the Pro models to experience the latest iPhone processor is still up in the air, though. What are your thoughts? What do you think?
