The iPhone 14 is nearly a month away from launch and there isn’t a lot we don’t know. Credible studies say there will probably be a much bigger Max measurement and a greater digital camera, however many of the main enhancements will probably be reserved for the iPhone 14 Professional, together with the A16 chip, which will probably be unique to Apple’s priciest handsets for the primary time.
However that doesn’t imply the iPhone 14 gained’t be sooner than the iPhone 13. Even with the identical A15 chip inside, Apple in all probability isn’t going to promote that this 12 months’s processor is identical as final 12 months’s, so you possibly can count on the same old charts and graphs that present the iPhone 14 besting the iPhone 13 in head-to-head-tests.
It begins with the chip itself. With the iPhone 13, Apple used model of the A15 within the Professional fashions that had 5 GPU cores, whereas the non-pro fashions had 4 GPU cores. It additionally had 6GB of RAM, whereas the non-pro mannequin had 4GB. In our testing, that gave the iPhone 13 Professional about 20 p.c extra graphics efficiency than the iPhone 13.
For the reason that iPhone 14 is anticipated to make use of the identical model of the A15 because the “Professional” fashions of the iPhone 13, it will get that further GPU core and 2GB of RAM. That may assist apps load faster because the iPhone will be capable to retailer extra in its reminiscence with out slowing down different processes. So the iPhone 14 ought to carry out higher than iPhone 13, however not essentially higher than iPhone 13 Professional.
Moreover, all iPhone 14 fashions are anticipated to make use of Qualcomm’s X65 5G modem, which brings “considerably higher efficiency via new power-saving applied sciences” as in comparison with the X60. And in keeping with leaker ShrimpApplePro on Twitter, the iPhone 14 could have a “new internals design” which will even ship “general efficiency enhance over the iPhone 13 sequence,” although that’s fairly imprecise.
All mentioned the iPhone 14 might nonetheless deliver respectable efficiency beneficial properties over the non-Professional iPhone 13 that make it a compelling improve, although not practically as spectacular because the A16 chip in iPhone 14 Professional. Apple is anticipated to unveil its newest iPhone at an occasion in early September.
