Apple’s upcoming iPhone 14 household is anticipated to launch within the fall and comprise of 4 fashions: the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Professional, and iPhone 14 Professional Max. The “mini” mannequin shall be discontinued after the dismal gross sales of the iPhone 13 mini.
In keeping with a analysis observe by analyst Jeff Pu for Haitong Worldwide Securities, this 12 months Apple will make its Professional and non-Professional iPhone fashions way more alike than earlier than – in the case of the screens and reminiscence quantities used.
In reality, all 4 iPhone 14 fashions are stated to sport 120 Hz screens, not simply the 2 Professional gadgets (as is at present the case within the iPhone 13 era). Not simply that, however all 4 iPhone 14 fashions will even have the very same RAM quantity: 6GB. This too is in distinction to the present scenario, the place the iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 13 have 4GB, whereas the Professional and Professional Max have 6GB.
Beforehand, Pu stated the iPhone 14 Professional and Professional Max would bump that as much as 8GB, however apparently that is not taking place anymore. A “provide chain verify” revealed that value issues are in charge for the change in technique.
With these options being similar between the cheaper non-Professional fashions and the dearer Professionals, it stays to be seen what different issues Apple can pack into the Professionals to distinguish them and make the value delta straightforward to swallow. We’re certain cameras will proceed to be one such space of differentiation – however till now so had been display screen refresh charges and RAM quantities.
For what it is price, Pu says the Professionals will begin at 256GB of storage (whereas the non-Professionals will begin at 64GB, apparently), and the Professional fashions will even include the much-rumored 48 MP predominant digicam.
It is nonetheless fairly early within the iPhone 14 rumor cycle, so do not take any of this stuff with no consideration simply but. There’s loads of time for different rumors to both corroborate or problem these statements.
