A few months ahead of the rumored “iPhone 12” launch, images of an Apple A14 chip component have surfaced online.
The images in question depict the RAM portion of an A14 chipset, according to Mr. White, who posted the images to Twitter on Monday. Mr. White is a known leaker who has previously shared accurate images and details about future Apple products.
Aside from some numbering, the images don’t reveal much about the A14 chipset — or the devices that they’ll be installed in, for that matter. The “2016” date on this particular chip refers to the 16th week of 2020, which suggests that the chip as manufactured in April of the year.
The upcoming chipset itself is said to be the first manufactured by TSMC with a 5nm chipmaking process. Apparent leaked benchmark scores indicate that the chip may be twice as fast as the A12Z Bionic in the iPad Pro.
In June, Mr. White tweeted that the “iPhone 12” models will come bundled with a 20W power adapter. Earlier on Monday, images of apparent pre-assembly “iPhone 12” screen units surfaced on Chinese social media before being removed for unknown reasons.
Apple is expected to release four new models in the “iPhone 12” lineup in 2020, including a lower-priced 5.4-inch device, a mid-range 6.1-inch device, a “Pro” 6.1-inch device and a 6.8-inch “iPhone 12 Pro Max” model.
All of those models are expected to pack OLED displays are 5G connectivity, while the higher-tier “Pro” models come sport 6GB of RAM, a 120Hz ProMotion display and a triple-lens camera setup.
