According to the latest foreign media reports,In the iPhone 12 orthodox series released by apple this year, all of them will be equipped with A14 as standard, and there will be no shrinkage in different versions of processors. There are two main reasons for this: first, apple highlights the difference in configuration, and will not sacrifice performance in exchange. Second, apple does not think it is necessary to shrink the processor.
Some analysts said that TSMC's current 5nm capacity is limited,AppleThere is no need and no possibility to produce a reduced version of A14 separately, and the rapid delivery of A14 processor models can let them quickly dilute the corresponding costs.
However, according to the previous information, the entry-level version of theiPhoneAfter all, Apple will limit its 5g network frequency band and the number of rear cameras. But even so, compared with the previous generation, the rear dual camera can meet the needs of many people.
Of course, it is also mentioned in the report that Apple may consider continuing to use the A13 processor when it launches a cheaper iPhone. Although the A14 has arrived, the performance of their previous generation processor is still very good, which is a fact that the Android camp cannot avoid.
