New times, new rules: entry-level and mid-range iPhones will no longer have the latest Apple Socs

Published

Renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said new entry-level and mid-range iPhone models will no longer receive Apple’s latest SoCs in the future as the company changes its business strategy.

Earlier this year, Ming-Chi Kuo already suggested that Apple could use the new Apple A16 SoC exclusively for iPhone 14 Pro models, while regular iPhone 14 models will get last year’s Apple A15.

Apple is expected to announce four new iPhone models this year: iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max (a larger 6.7-inch version that will replace the iPhone mini), iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max. While the regular iPhone 14 models will retain the same design as the iPhone 13 with minimal internal updates, the Pro line will get a new dual-notch design and a much-improved camera.

New times, new rules: entry-level and mid-range iPhones will no longer have the latest Apple Socs

This won’t be the first time Apple has kept major updates such as a new design exclusive to more expensive iPhone models. In 2017, the iPhone X was introduced with a completely new design, Face ID and other new technologies, while the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were simply improved versions of the iPhone 7. However, both the iPhone 8 and iPhone X feature the same Apple A11 Bionic Soc . Apple has followed this strategy in subsequent years with the iPhone XR and iPhone XS, iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro, and so on. Now everything will change.

After Ming-Chi Kuo’s statement, Bloomberg confirmed from independent sources that only two of the four iPhone 14 models will receive the modern Apple A16. The huge differences between the mid-range iPhone 14 and the high-end iPhone 14 Pro should make the more expensive models even more popular with consumers. If previously it was expected that by the end of 2022 the iPhone 14 Pro will account for 40% to 50% of sales of new models, now this estimate has been raised to 60%.

In the future, the latest processor chip will be exclusive to high-end iPhone models, so a large proportion of the supply of high-end iPhone models will become the norm, favoring high-end camera component suppliers.

The fact is that with the release of models equipped with FaceID, there was no room left on the screen for percentages, so you had to turn on the Control Center or use widgets. In the latest iOS 16 beta, percentages will be displayed inside the battery icon in the status bar.

iOS 16 itself should be released in September along with the iPhone 14, but it is not yet known exactly when this will happen. Note that the company may postpone the release of iPadOS 16 for a month. According to media reports, this is due to problems with the Stage Manager function.
