If you’re an iPhone 13 owner, you’ll probably not have many reasons to buy the upcoming iPhone 14. According to 9to5Mac sources, other analysts, and publications as well, Apple will keep the regular iPhone 14 models with the same A15 Bionic chip found on last year’s iPhones, while only the iPhone 14 Pro versions will get the newer A16 chip.
Now, reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims Apple will keep this strategy for the years ahead, meaning the same lineup will now have different chips starting later this year. Although this change of mind could make some iPhone users angry, it will also keep a very Apple trend: making some of its products more exclusive and directed to “Pro” users.
In a report on his personal blog, Kuo noted that the huge differences between the mid-range iPhone 14 and the high-end iPhone 14 Pro should make the more expensive models even more popular with consumers. While previously the iPhone 14 Pro was expected to account for 40% to 50% of sales of the new models by the end of 2022, the estimate has now been raised to as much as 60%.
As noted by 9to5Mac‘s Filipe Espósito, if rumors turn out to be true, this wouldn’t be the first time Apple has kept major upgrades like a new design exclusive to the more expensive iPhone models. In 2017, iPhone X was introduced with a brand new design, Face ID, and other new technologies, while iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were just better versions of the iPhone 7.
What would be different this time, of course, is that Apple would keep its latest processor for the most demanding users, while those who prefer the regular version would keep last year’s chip. That said, here’s why this isn’t a bad deal.
