iPhone 14’s chip may be different from iPhone 14 Pro, Pro Max

Published

  • iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max might be powered by A15 Bionic chip, iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max by A16. 
  • Chips may be termed differently. 
  • iPhone 14, excluding Pro models, will cost the same as iPhone 13.

For the first time, there might be significant differences in the chips for iPhones within the iPhone 14 family, including an A16 Bionic chip for iPhone 14 and A16 Pro for iPhone 14 Pro, reported BGR.

While Apple has always used the same system-on-chips (SoC) for all models in a family, rumours suggest that it might use different ones for iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max.

Reports suggest that iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will be powered by the chip that powered iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max, A15 Bionic version. iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, however, will be powered by the next generation Bionic chip, A16.

Confusingly, even though iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max use the same chip that their predecessors used, Apple is expected to term it “A16” instead of the A15 Bionic version. And the chip in iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max might be termed “A16 Pro” which is more advanced than A16.

It is important to remember that A15 Bionic chips themselves have no competition since no Andriod SoC can currently match the A15.

While all iPhones in the 14 family will feature 6GB RAM, the Pro and Pro Max phones will get speedier LPDDR5 variation.

Amongst these rumours is also the possibility that iPhone 14 will cost the same as iPhone 13. The only models which will see a bump in price are the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, which is expected to be a rise of $100. 

There have also been speculations that the iPhone 14 family will not hit a new record for the largest or smallest phones in the iPhone collection.

If users love small phones and look forward to buying the iPhone 14 mini, it might be disappointing to know that the mini is actually bigger than most mobiles.

Similarly, if someone is looking forward to the Max models to enjoy a large screen, the screens of iPhone 14 Max and Pro Max are smaller than the screens of iPhone 13 and 13 Pro Max.

After 15 years, the SRB reduced the service tax that 58 hotels and restaurants in Karachi could have charged on debit and credit card purchases to 15%. This action is a part of the Sindh budget, which was designed to make eating out less expensive for customers.

Prior to this, Sindh’s tax on credit and debit card purchases was lowered from 15% to 8%.

Officials from the SRB have further stated that the service was made available for input adjustment of restaurant tax payments. With this step, businesses will be able to efficiently handle their tax responsibilities and the tax process would be made simpler.

Only a few eateries have been given authority to remove the lower tax rate, even though this tax facility has been reversed.

The government is considering filing a treason case under Article 6 against PTI founder Imran Khan, former president Arif Alvi, and former deputy speaker Qasim Suri. On Tuesday, the KSE-100 Index was up more than 1.3% during early trading, following a day of roughly a 2 percent loss due to growing political unrest and the potential banning of the party.

However, the benchmark index of the Pakistan Stock Exchange was trading at 79,074.63 by 11:49 a.m., having gained 535.45 points, or 0.68 percent, after reaching an intraday high of 79,578.04.

Market analysts said that political tensions were the primary cause of the KSE-100’s earlier Monday decline of 1578.71 points, or 1.97 percent.

They did point out, though, that a correction was a reasonable reaction to the protracted upswing that allowed the benchmark mark index to reach 81,839.86 on July 18.

As a result of interest rate cuts and the possibility of another IMF program, the Pakistan Stock Exchange has gained 22.97 percent so far this year. The cycle began on June 10 with a 1.5 percent decrease in borrowing costs.

During interbank trade on Tuesday, the US dollar’s value increased by 15 paisas, reaching Rs 278.45.

It is important to remember that Fitch Business Monitor International expressed concern about the possibility that Pakistan’s economic stability may be jeopardized by the ongoing political unrest.

The fragile situation of Pakistan’s economic recovery was emphasized by Fitch in its most recent Pakistan Country Risk Report, which also noted that economic activity has been impeded by urban protests.

(PTI),In spite of multiple successful judicial appeals, the founder of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) is expected to stay behind bars, the article notes, underscoring the fragile political environment.

With no urgent plans for new elections, this scenario suggests that the coalition administration will remain in office for the next 18 months.

Fitch also described an eventuality in which the government could change and be replaced by a technocratic administration. This suggests that the government of Pakistan would carry out the reforms demanded by the IMF, contributing to the 3.2% GDP growth expected in 2024–2025.

The policy rate has stabilized above projections, while the research predicted it may reach 16 percent this fiscal year and 14 percent the following year.
