Buy an iPhone 13 mini and have the same processor as the iPhone 13 Pro Max. This was one of the great benefits in the iPhone family. Differentiating the terminals by finish, camera and some details made the bet on the “input” iPhone quite attractive. not being necessary to pay for the most expensive models to have the most powerful (with nuances, since the 13 Pro models have a more powerful GPU, but the CPU and thickness of the SoC was identical).

According to Ming-Chi Kuo, this party of power will end this year and it will not be an exception, but the norm: only the iPhone ‘Pro’ They will have a new processor, the rest of the variants will arrive with processors from last year.

Latest model, latest processor

iPhone 8

No more “cheap” iPhones with the best processor. Already at the beginning of the year, Kuo ventured to predict that The iPhone 14 Pro will debut the Apple A16 Bionicwhile the iPhone 14 and 14 Max will keep last year’s chip, the Apple A15 Bionic.

Apple has always equipped its entire family with the latest processor, regardless of whether the variant was normal, Pro, Plus, S, Mini… In fact, even the iPhone 8 shared a processor with the iPhone X, being of the same generation . The party of power is overdepending on the source.

iPhones without this surname will recycle previous generation processorsomething that can be linked to losing several of the new features and functions that Apple usually reserves for phones with the latest SoC.

On the consumer side, that Apple recycle processor can help curb the rise in prices in cheaper variants. In the same way, it can be an incentive to bet on the Pro model of the previous year, which will share a processor with the new variant.
