Apple iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max tipped to receive a storage boost as even the cheapest iPhone 14 model to acquire 120 Hz ProMotion display and 6 GB of RAM upgrades
Analyst Jeff Pu has delivered some details concerning the entire iPhone 14 series, not just Pro models. For context, Apple is still expected to release two 'Pro' iPhones in the autumn, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Last year, Apple distinguished the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max from the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini in three areas: cameras, ProMotion displays and RAM. However, Pu believes that Apple will be doing away with two of those elements for the iPhone 14 series.
According to a research note seen by MacRumors, Pu states that all iPhone 14 models will feature 6 GB of RAM, an upgrade for non-Pro models. Currently, Apple equips the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max with 6 GB of RAM but uses 4 GB of RAM in the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini. While Apple is thought to have axed the mini model this year, it could replace it with a non-Pro Max edition.
For some reason, Apple will hold off from bringing the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max to 8 GB of RAM, the minimum that Android flagships rely on these days. Additionally, all models are tipped to arrive with ProMotion displays. Hence, all iPhone 14 models could support variable refresh rates up to 120 Hz, matching the iPhone 13 Pro and iPad Pro ranges.
Moreover, Pu asserts that the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will be available from 256 GB of storage, not 128 GB. Supposedly, Apple will return to 64 GB as the entry-level storage configuration for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max too, but this seems rather unlikely in MacRumors' opinion.
