Apple is Creating a Bigger Gap Between the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro Models as the Prior is Said to Not House the A16 Bionic Chip and the 48MP Camera. In his latest edition of the Power On newsletter, Mark Gurman states that the iPhone 14 will not come with an A16 Bionic chip along with a 48MP camera. He also emphasized that the company is looking to create a bigger gap between the two models. What this means is that the A16 Bionic chip and the 48MP camera will be exclusive to the iPhone 14 Pro models. The standard models, on the other hand, will retain a 12MP Wide camera, much like the current iPhone 13 models. Refurbished Samsung Phones are Selling Better Than iPhones
Apple wants to widen the difference between the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models even more. We already know that the two variants will be made of different materials, but it appears that the iPhone 14 Pro models will depart even more from the normal ones. In comparison to the iPhone 14 Pro variants, the iPhone 14 will be missing Apple’s latest A16 Bionic chip as well as a 48MP camera, according to a recent report. Furthermore, Apple may introduce Satellite connectivity on the iPhone this year.
First coined by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple’s decision could also be a result of the global chip shortage. Henceforth, a version of Apple’s A15 Bionic chip from last year could power the standard models of the iPhone 14. In terms of pricing, the upcoming 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max could be $200 less than the current iPhone 13 Pro Max.
Other than this, Gurman also states that Satellite connectivity could make its way to the iPhone this year or the next. The report also mentions that a future model of the Apple Watch could also gain Satellite connectivity. While concrete details are scarce at this point, we would advise you to take the news with a pinch of salt because the final word rests with the company. This is all there is to it, folks.

In terms of design, the standard 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 models will feature a similar design to the iPhone 13. However, the iPhone 14 Pro models will adopt a dual-cutout design for Face ID components as well as the front-facing camera. It remains to be seen if Apple will segregate the iPhone 14 models in terms of processing power with the introduction of the A16 Bionic chip. iPhone 14 Pro to feature A16 Bionic Chip and 48MP Camera
