The iPhone 14 is still going to be more powerful than the 13, despite having the same A15 chip. The new model is a step forward.
Ming-Chi Kuo made many Apple followers frown with his special news. In March of this year, the well-known Apple analyst reported that the iPhone 14 and 14 Max will receive the A15 chip. That is the same processor that the current 13, Pro and Pro Max run on. Only the Pro models of the 14 will receive the A16 chip, according to the analyst. His claim was supported by Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman, who feels the same way.
The same A15 chip in the iPhone 14?
It therefore seems to be a special change of course for Apple, because all models received a new chip every year. Apple does this for an obvious reason. Where the regular and Pro models have converged in the past few years, the difference will be greater this year. For example, the new model has a 48-megapixel camera, which requires the extra processing power.
The chip shortage is also mentioned as a cause. Until now, Apple didn’t seem to be bothered by it as much as other brands. That seems to be different with the A16 chip.
Despite using *some* old hardware, iPhone 14 non pro still have some overall performance boost over the iPhone 13 series
New cellular modem, new internals design, ect

Difference in performance
The normal iPhone 14 therefore seems to get the same processor as its predecessor. Yet, according to the well-known Apple delicious ShrimpApplePro don’t be afraid that there is no difference between the old and new version of the iPhone. The 14 still delivers better performance. The Twitter user mentions the modem and the design of the inside as examples.
We can now only guess what the iPhone 14 looks like on the inside. So we have to make do with the rumours. One of them is certainly interesting. For example, there are sources that claim that the iPhone 14 goes to 6GB of RAM. That is 2GB more than the iPhone 13. In addition, the new model gets a new more efficient modem that also uses less electricity. This in turn benefits the battery life.
