New Apple Leak Reveals iPhone 14 Speed Shock

iPhone 14 Reveals

Apple is anticipated to give its upcoming iPhones different chipset generations for the first time in iPhone history.

The variations between them were expected to be minor, but a fresh leak may have blown those expectations out of the water.

Apple’s new A16 chip, which is restricted to iPhone 14 Pro models, promises massive performance and battery advantages over the 2021 A15, which is being retained for non-Pro devices, according to unidentified leaker iHacktu.

And one of the industry’s most well-known insiders has backed up the findings.

Apple’s new A16 chip, which is restricted to iPhone 14 Pro models, promises massive performance and battery advantages over the 2021 A15, which is being retained for non-Pro devices, according to unidentified leaker iHacktu.

And one of the industry’s most well-known insiders has backed up the findings.

Breaking down the results, iHacktu says A16 has 42% and 35% faster CPU and GPU performance respectively, compared to its predecessor. Gains of this magnitude haven’t been seen since the iPhone 7’s A10 chip in 2016, which had 40% greater CPU performance and 50% greater GPU performance than the A9 in the iPhone 6S.

Furthermore, iHacktu promises significant battery gains, including an extra 2 hours 10 minutes of battery life and a surge in fast charge speeds, with iPhone 14 Pro models reaching 50% charge in just 16 minutes.

That’s half of Apple’s 30-minute estimate for the iPhone 13 Pro.

Although iHacktu’s track record has been uneven in the past, which should temper expectations, the response of reliable industry insider ShrimpApplePro, who backs the data, adds real intrigue here. According to the leaker, Apple is obtaining the performance boost “primarily through LPDDR5 RAM, which makes sense.”

The leaker told iHacktu that his A16 performance data comes from “the early stages of testing, which means it can vary,” but that it comes from sources that have shown to be reliable in recent years.

On Antutu’s popular benchmark software, iHacktu has likewise changed his expectations of the A16.

The leaker claims that the processor can deliver a score of 920,000 from launch, after earlier claiming that it would get a score of 896,000 (against 777,000 for the iPhone 13).

Furthermore, iHacktu told me that the chip has headroom, with the iPhone 14 Pro Max potentially scoring 950,000 on Antutu when running newer versions of iOS 16.

All of this creates a rosy picture for upgraders willing to pay a premium for Pro models.

And this is part of a larger story, as other lesser leakers have emerged after posting information regarding the iPhone 14 lineup that disputed information from more recognized sources (hat tip to ShrimpApplePro).

The established sources were the ones who changed their minds.

It’s unclear whether this will happen with the A16 data, but given Apple’s recent crackdown on leaks, the pattern makes sense as newer identities go under the radar.

It’s a huge step. LPDDR5 is 1.5x faster and consumes 30% less power than LPDDR4X, which was utilized in earlier iPhones.

According to sources, Apple will employ the latter in basic iPhone 14 versions as well.

As a result, if the claims are true, Apple could be on the verge of shattering fan expectations. The company would also be making its most compelling upsell argument since the iPhone X debuted alongside the iPhone 8.

Given the design improvements and exclusive camera upgrades on iPhone 14 Pro models, the company would also be making its most compelling upsell argument since the iPhone X debuted alongside the iPhone 8.

It’s looking more and more like this year’s ‘go-Pro’ will come at an even higher price, but judging on what has leaked so far, it might well be a price worth paying.
