Apple will simply rename last year’s Apple A15 Bionic SoC to A16 Bionic for iPhone 14 and raise prices for older models

Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo argued that future iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max smartphones may be equipped with last year’s Apple A15 Bionic single-chip system. Now this information is confirmed along with other interesting details.

Bloomberg editor Mark Gurman agrees and adds that the Cupertino giant will split the chipsets of its iPhone line for the first time since the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. The former used the Apple A7 single-chip system, while the latter used the older Apple A6 platform. According to iDrop News, the iPhone 14 series will follow the same path.

This year, Apple will be reusing the A15 Bionic chipset that debuted in the iPhone 13 series for the base iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max. However, to avoid a possible backlash, the company will simply rename the platform to Apple A16 Bionic. On the other hand, the new platform will be called Apple A16 Pro and will be used in the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

Notably, this move allowed Apple to cut costs. Since the mini model has been discontinued, the line will now start at $800, while the Max version will cost $100 more. The company will still be able to maintain the usual $200 price difference between Pro and base smartphones.

The presentation of the iPhone 14 may take place in September this year.

Will PlayStation have fewer exclusives? Sony plans to release half of its PlayStation Studios games on PC and smartphones

Will PlayStation have fewer exclusives Sony plans to release half

Sony has outlined its immediate plans for the game for PC and mobile platforms.

Will PlayStation have fewer exclusives?  Sony plans to release half of its PlayStation Studios games on PC and smartphones

CEO Jim Ryan said that Sony plans to have half of the games created by its internal studios in fiscal year 2025, including on PC and smartphones.

That is, only 50% of the games will remain exclusive, while the rest will be available to a much larger number of gamers. This is similar to Phil Spencer’s position on the Xbox.

From the chart, you can see that the share of PCs will still be higher than the share of smartphones, which should please gamers who prefer large single-player games. The share of Sony games on smartphones is now about 10%, and in three years it should double. In the case of the PC, there is no exact data, but the share of such projects will not grow so significantly.

Most likely, the big story games for the most part, as now, will be released only on the PlayStation, and will migrate to the PC years later. What kind of games will be released on PC and smartphones? Judging by Ryan’s statement, including game-services. It turns out that Sony is now working on 12 such projects at once. According to the head of PlayStation, if at least some of these projects become successful, it will greatly transform the company’s business structure.

Historically, PlayStation Studios has done an excellent job of building a vast portfolio of single-player games with rich storytelling and beautiful graphics, but we’ve certainly limited ourselves to a fairly narrow section of the gaming market.

By expanding into PCs and mobile devices, and, it must be said, into online services, we have the opportunity to move from a very narrow segment of the overall gaming software market to a presence almost everywhere.

For example, I would say that if we manage to make some of the 12 service games that we develop at PlayStation Studios… if only some of them are commercially successful, then the impact of this will completely transform our business structure over time.

Given the success of Sony games on PC, it’s no surprise that the share of such games will continue to grow. As for the mobile segment, it has long occupied more than half of the entire gaming industry in terms of money. By the way, we recall that the first of the PlayStation 5 exclusives may soon be released on the PC.

The new version costs $ 160, of course, in many respects inferior to the older one, but not in everything. For example, the same battery with a capacity of 5000 mAh is installed here, only the older version has a 10-watt charge, while the younger one has a very decent 33-watt charge for this segment.

In almost all other respects, smartphones are identical, except that the new version has a screen with support for only 60 Hz. At the same time, this is the same IPS panel with a diagonal of 6.56 inches with HD + resolution.

The smartphone has the same 13 MP camera, the same design, the same Android 12 out of the box. Another difference is that the $235 A57 5G offers 8GB of RAM and 128GB of flash, while the A57 4G only has 3GB of RAM and 64GB of flash.

Samsung unveils the Galaxy M23 5G smartphone with a price

Samsung quietly launched another smartphone on the market – the Galaxy M23 5G.

Samsung unveils the Galaxy M23 5G smartphone with a price tag of over $400, but don't worry about the price

So far, the novelty is presented only in Brazil, so its price of $ 415 should not scare potential buyers in other countries. Due to the nature of taxation in Brazil, electronics are very expensive there. For example, the Galaxy S22 Ultra costs over $1,800 there.

Thus, we are now most interested in the parameters. In particular, the Snapdragon 750G platform is at the core, which will delight fans of Qualcomm’s SoCs.

Also, the device received 6 GB of RAM, the company does not disclose the amount of flash memory. The novelty offers a 120-Hz display with a diagonal of 6.6 inches, a main camera with a resolution of 50 megapixels and a 5000 mAh battery with 25-watt charging. As a result, the Galaxy M23 5G is very similar to the Galaxy A23, but the novelty has 5G support, a slightly more productive platform and a higher screen frequency.
