The forthcoming iPhone 14 series is expected to be split into two categories: 

The Pro models will feature the latest Apple A16 chipset, better cameras, and a completely different display layout. 

On the other hand, the basic models will continue with the A15 chip with 12MP cameras and a notch display.

The iPhone 14 and 14 Max will likely come with the 5-core GPU version of the A15 chip, a larger RAM capacity - 6GB of LPDDR4X and more.

The A16 chip that is coming out is expected to be more significant, with 18-20 billion transistors, an increase from 15 billion. 

However, the company could move to the ARMv9 chip. ARM was able to offer some advancements with the Cortex A715 and X3 cores, for instance.

Overall, the CPU could provide a slight increase of 15% in performance. Apple will stick with the same configuration of cores (2 large and four small).

The move to faster RAM is likely to provide a performance improvement too. DigiTimes reports that iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max will utilize the brand new LPDDR5 version, 

Which has 50 per cent more capacity than LPDDR4X and is also more energy efficient to start. Both models will use 6GB of capability, however.

For the GPU, The expectation is that Apple will keep the 5-core processor to ensure that the chip isn't too big or possibly increase it to 6 cores.

Whatever the case, the expectation is for a 25% to 30% increase in GPU performance.

Apple will also increase the machine learning and ISP hardware to cope with the increased resolution. 

In addition, the 14 Pro range is expected to be upgraded towards a 48MP camera and eight-channel video recordings. This will also raise the resolution limit for Cinematic Mode from 1080p to 4K.
