The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will not include the A16 chip, according to Ming-Chi Kuo (information from this leaker is normally accurate to roughly 72.5 percent). The A15 chip of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max is the same as on the iPhone 13.
Apple’s latest A16 chip will be available to users who spend extra on the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max.
The 14 Pro series will include faster LPDDR 5 RAM, whereas the 14 series will feature slower 4X LPDDR RAM.
Only two Pro models would upgrade to the A16 processor, while the 14 & 14 Max will remain the A15. All four new models will likely come with 6GB RAM, with the difference being LPDDR 5 (14 Pro & 14 Pro Max) vs. LPDDR 4X (14 & 14 Max). https://t.co/tHcszIz6gX

The names of this year’s iPhones have also been confirmed by Kuo: iPhone 14 (6.1-inch), iPhone 14 Max (6.7-inch), iPhone 14 Pro (6.1-inch), and iPhone 14 Pro Max (6. 7 inches).
Apple appears to be attempting to differentiate between the standard iPhone line and the pro (Pro) line. Apple added an extra GPU core to the iPhone 13 Pro line last year, and now the iPhone 14 Pro will have its own processor.
