iPhone 14 Lineup Expected to Start With Increased 6GB of RAM

All four iPhone 14 models launching later this year will be equipped with 6GB of RAM, according to Taiwanese research firm TrendForce.

TrendForce said the iPhone 14 Pro models will be upgraded to a faster and more power efficient type of RAM known as LPDDR5, while the standard iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max models are expected to stick with LPDDR4X.

If the report proves to be accurate, the iPhone 14 lineup would compare as follows:

  • iPhone 13 mini: 4GB (LPDDR4X)
  • iPhone 13: 4GB (LPDDR4X)
  • iPhone 13 Pro: 6GB (LPDDR4X)
  • iPhone 13 Pro Max: 6GB (LPDDR4X)
  • iPhone 14: 6GB (LPDDR4X)
  • iPhone 14 Max: 6GB (LPDDR4X)
  • iPhone 14 Pro: 6GB (LPDDR5)
  • iPhone 14 Pro Max: 6GB (LPDDR5)

The report lines up with information shared by Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who also claimed that all four iPhone 14 models would be equipped with 6GB of RAM and that iPhone 14 Pro models would be upgraded to LPDDR5.

TrendForce also suggests that iPhone 14 Pro models may start with 256GB of storage, compared to 128GB for iPhone 13 Pro models, but the chart says the storage capacities are "TBD," so this information appears to be less certain.

As previously rumored, two features expected to be exclusive to iPhone 14 Pro models are an upgraded 48-megapixel rear camera lens and an A16 chip. The standard iPhone 14 models are expected to stick with an A15 chip.

As widely rumored as well, no iPhone 14 mini is expected this year. Instead, Apple is planning to launch 6.1-inch iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max models. The devices will likely be announced at Apple's usual September event, barring any significant supply chain disruptions.

With what kind of apps is that amount of RAM necessary?
Not many, but more RAM lets iOS keep more apps in memory rather than loading them from (and swapping or storing their state to) NAND each time. That, in turn, improves performance and extends battery life.

Why does the chart say, Frame: Steel. Are we not getting the titanium chassis for iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max Line up?

Hmm... Was kind of hoping the Pros would get boosted to 8GB but it's not like my 13 PM struggles with 6. Just think it's weird they might upgrade the lower end models but keep the higher ones the same.

One thing I'm going to watch: will Apple upgrade the Lightning port to support USB 3.0 speed connectivity and 27 W initial charging rate under USB-IF PD 3.0?

The base iPad isn't really designed for multitasking. It was designed to be really cheap. The iPad Pro was designed as a laptop replacement.
It’s 2022 not 2010. ALL iPads should be multitask focused.
