Using the old platform in the iPhone 14 will reduce the cost and create a big difference

Last week, it was reported that the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will be built on last year's Apple A15 Bionic operating system, while the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max models will feature the yet-to-be-announced Apple A16 Bionic SoC. Now Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has revealed new details on this matter. He says that the decision to use different single-chip systems within the same line is most likely a marketing and/or financial one.

The analyst speculates that the Cupertino-based tech giant is trying to create more differentiation between standard and pro iPhones, and is also trying to keep costs low by using older-generation SoCs in the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max models.

It has also been reported that while all iPhone 14 series models will have 6GB of RAM, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max models will have LPDDR4X RAM. On the other hand, the Pro models will have LPDDR5 RAM, which will make an even bigger difference.

Apple is expected to launch four iPhone models this year, including the Apple iPhone 14, 14 Max, 14 Pro, and 14 Pro Max. The iPhone 14 and 14 Pro will feature a 6.1-inch display, while the 14 Max and 14 Pro Max will have a 6.7-inch screen.
