iPhone 14 A16 Chipset

According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models will be powered by a brand new A16 Bionic chipset based on a 4nm fabrication process. Kuo believes there is only a marginal advantage of the new A16 Bionic’s 4nm node process over the existing 5nm node process. iPhone 14 Pro Max’s A16 performs more or less similar to A15 chip. More than the performance, the upgrade from A15 to A16 is more of a marketing posturing
