Non-Pro iPhone 14 models to feature “enhanced version” of A15 Bionic chip – Report

As we inch closer to the expected launch on September 7, a new report by The Wall Street Journal details the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max (non-Pro variants) will be equipped with an advanced A15 Bionic chip.

It has been well established that this year iPhone 14 Pro models will be truly higher-end versions of the base models. In addition to the redesigned display, and improved camera, the Pro variants are rumored to feature an A16 Bionic chip built on an advanced 5nm process.

The report did not mention the specifications of the “enhanced version” of the A15 Bionic chip to be used in standard models. It is likely that Apple will use its higher-end A15 Bionic chip version introduced in iPhone 13 Pro models last year.

Although the A15 Bionic chip features across iPhone 13 series, the chip in Pro models has more GPU cores than non-Pro models.
