Apple’s redesigned iPhone 12 smartphones.
Is now a big piece of the puzzle that has just been filled in, and it may result in some users needing to spend more than they intended.
Rising Apple insider L0vetodream has revealed that Apple will equip its iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max models with 6GB RAM, that’s 50% more than their predecessors and this should deliver a major increase in multitasking performance. Moreover, acclaimed Apple leaker Jon Prosser has now followed up this information stating that he “can confirm” it as well. But there’s one downside.
Massively popular YouTuber Filip Koroy (aka EverythingApplePro) has revealed further details about the iPhone 12 range, with new information of their exciting A14 chipset. Working with insider Max Weinbach, he states that the A14 is understood to deliver a performance upgrade over the A13 that is equivalent to that seen by the Apple A11 over the A10.
For those in need of a history lesson, this was a seismic leap. The A11 in the iPhone 8 delivered up to 70% faster multitasking performance with its high efficiency cores as well as 30% faster graphics performance than the A10 in the iPhone 7, all while using less power.
The A14 will also have “a huge transistor jump,” explains Koroy. “As far as we know, it is going from 8.5 billion to 15 billion transistors.” With mobile chipset gains shrinking in recent years, this jump would give the new iPhones a potential multi-year advantage on the competition.
That said, don’t expect any iPhone 12 model to be slow. At their heart will be Apple’s new A14 chipset which looks set to bring the biggest generational leap in years.
The 5.4-inch iPhone will also deliver a price/performance ratio unlike anything this small, while the iPhone 12 Pro models will add Apple’s potentially game-changing new LiDAR sensor and 5G is coming to all models (albeit in different flavors).
At this stage, the only fly in the ointment is ongoing display concerns in what otherwise looks set to be a truly stellar iPhone launch year.
