There have been a ton of conflicting reports about the upcoming iPhone 14 lineup’s RAM specifications. A new report today suggests all models in the lineup will feature 6GB of RAM, but the Pro and Pro Max models will come with faster LPDDR5 memory.
iPhone 14 to receive significant RAM upgrade
According to a new report from DigiTimes, all four iPhone 14 models will feature 6GB of RAM. In contrast, the iPhone 13 lineup starts at 4GB of RAM while the higher-end variants offer 6GB of RAM. In addition, all iPhone 13 models feature LPDDR4X which will continue to be used in the upcoming lineup but only for the standard iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max. On the other hand, the Pro and Pro Max variants will feature LPDDR5 memory which will offer more energy-efficient performance.
- iPhone 14: 6GB (LPDDR4X)
- iPhone 14 Max: 6GB (LPDDR4X)
- iPhone 14 Pro: 6GB (LPDDR5)
- iPhone 14 Pro Max: 6GB (LPDDR5)
This year’s standard iPhone 14 model will feature the same design as its predecessor with the same A15 chip. On the other hand, the Pro models are expected to get the A16 chip, a new pill + hole punch cutout for the display, major camera upgrades as well as rumored features like an always-on display. In the past, Apple has kept some elements exclusive to its higher-end iPhones. However, the internals were always upgraded each year for every model.
According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman and Kuo, the Pro models will feature an upgraded front camera. As revealed by Kuo, the front camera will also feature autofocus which will offer sharper images and improved picture quality. Furthermore, the camera will also have a 6-element lens instead of a 5-element lens, which will also add to the image quality.
The rear-end camera for the Pro models will be upgraded to 48MP. The bump will also enable 8K video recording, up from the iPhone 13 Pro’s 12MP camera and 4K video recording capabilities. 8K video recording has not been added to any iPhone model as of now but is commonly available on flagship Android smartphones.
Barring any delays, the lineup is on track for a September release.
