New leaks reveal the iPhone 14 Pro is the one to get excited about

A new range of iPhones is on its way soon, and the leaks and rumors so far have been pretty compelling – well, at least when it comes to the two premium models. In contrast, the two lower-end phones (iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max) look like having only minor upgrades. However, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max seem like they’ll be a huge step up from their current equivalents. And the latest leak has us more excited than ever. (Don’t fancy waiting?

According to supply-chain sources quoted in Digitimes, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will both feature 6GB of RAM using a faster memory type called LPDDR5. Put this together with the earlier rumor that they’ll sport the A16 Bionic processor – a vast improvement on the A15 in the iPhone 13 series – and we can expect significantly improved performance in these two phones, widely expected to launch in mid-September.

In practical terms, that means apps should load quicker, games should be smoother and more responsive… pretty much everything should be faster and easier, basically. However, we’re not expecting the same bump from the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max, which will also have 6GB RAM but with the less speedy LPDDR4X memory type, and the same A15 processor as the iPhone 13.

This divergence between the basic iPhone 14 models and the premium ones reflects other leaks and rumors we’ve been hearing to date, from the likes of Jon Prosser, Ming-Chi Kuo and Ross Young. For example, the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max are expected to have larger camera bumps thanks to a new 48MP sensor, which will capture much more detail than the 12MP sensor in the 13 Pro. These models (but not the two cheaper ones) are also predicted to get an Always-On Display.
