According to Komiya, a well-known foreign whistleblower, the GPU performance of the A14 chip will be 50%higher than that of the A13.
The A series chips not only include CPU and GPU cores, but also dedicated hardware for specific tasks. For example, the image processor that handles video encoding, and the neural network engine that is responsible for machine learning. Apple will also increase the Neural Engine core and make other architectural improvements. Used to improve machine learning capabilities.

The front is equipped with a 12 million wide-angle lens, and the rear is equipped with a four-camera combination of 12 million wide angle + 12 million telephoto + 12 million ultra wide angle + 3D TOF sensor; the battery capacity is 3800mAh, and the maximum supports 18W fast charging. The whole machine has a thickness of 7.4mm, double-sided Corning Gorilla Glass, supports IP68 dustproof and waterproof, and can stay in a water depth of 4 meters for at least 30 minutes; it uses Face ID to unlock, supports WLAN, Bluetooth 5.1, etc. In addition to the new LiDAR lidar, iPhone 12 Pro Max may also provide 4K120FPS, 4K240FPS slow motion shooting, using a 64GB/256GB/512GB memory combination.
Because of the 5G baseband, the cost has increased. The battery used in the iPhone 12 series models will abandon the previous soft and hard board design and use a cheaper one. , In order to reduce the manufacturing cost of the built-in battery. Under this operation, the battery purchase price of the iPhone 12 series is 40%~50%lower than that of the iPhone 11.
In addition to the iPhone, Apple’s big killer is also the rumored iPad Air 4. Various sources on the Internet indicate that the iPad Air 4 will maintain the same price as the previous generation, which is likely to be around 3800 yuan.
