Concept video of the iPhone 14 Pro resembles render of the 14 Pro Max released by a Twitter tipster
Apple will have to make do with a 4nm A16 chipset instead of the once expected 3nm chip
The concept imagines that the components and parts for Face ID are housed inside the handset. The concept also puts Touch ID on the side panel, integrated with the power button. There is also a 120Hz ProMotion display and color options include Matte Black, Purple, Blue. The four models we expect next year include the 6.1-inch iPhone 14, the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max, the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro, and the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Next year’s iPhone models will be powered by the 4nm A16 Bionic chipset. It was supposed to have been built using TSMC’s 3nm process node, but the complexity of this process forced the foundry to delay its 3nm production until the second half of 2022. By then, the window will have closed on shipping a 3nm chip to Apple in time to be used on the iPhone 14 series.
Some of these changes have already been made by Apple on other devices
The changes that would be made to the iPhone 14 Pro Max include things that Apple has used on some of its devices before. For example, integrating Touch ID with the side mounted power button has already been used by Apple on the iPad Air (2020) and the sixth-generation iPad mini. And Apple has already released some devices that use a USB-C plus. Tose models include:
- iPad Pro 12.9-inch (3rd and 4th generation)
- iPad Pro 11-inch (1st and 2nd generation)
- iPad Air (4th generation)
- iPad mini (6th generation)
