However, it looks like Apple may kill this USP with the iPhone 14. Well-known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggests that iphone 14 series, non-Pro iPhones will not have the same processor as the Pro model.
Why the potential change in Apple’s strategy?
According to Kuo, “the latest processor chip will be exclusive to future iPhone high-end models, so the higher shipment ratio of iPhone high-end models will be ideal to favor higher-end camera component suppliers.” The idea behind would be to ensure that the Pro models are more attractive to the users. Kuo said the Pro model is expected to account for about 50% of Apple’s sales in 2022, but raised that estimate to 60%.
This means that the fastest processor will be available only on the Pro model. As we mentioned, the biggest draw — for a lot of buyers — besides cost was the processor. You can get the best Apple offers — in terms of processors — without paying top dollar.
The iPhone 14 series is expected to offer four variants – two non-Pro models and two Pro models. if rumors are to be believed iphone 14 pro Variant will get A16 Bionic processor while Vanilla iPhone
The move could help Apple sell more Pro phones, but could also have a negative impact on its best-selling iPhones. As of now, this is just a rumor and nothing concrete will be known until the arrival of the iPhone 14 series.
