Apart from this, Kuo said that all four iPhone 14 models will come with 6GB of RAM. While the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max will come with the LPDDR 5 RAM, the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Max will come with the LPDDR 4x RAM. Simply said, the iPhone 14 Pro models will come with slightly better RAM than the non-Pro models.
In a separate tweet, Kuo also detailed the screen size of the iPhone 14 series smartphones. The Apple analyst said that the vanilla iPhone 14 will come with a 6.1-inch display, while the iPhone 14 Max will sport a 6.7-inch display. As far as the Pro models are concerned, the iPhone 14 Pro will sport a 6.1-inch display while the iPhone 14 Pro Max will come with a 6.7-inch display.
An older report by The Elec says that Apple is expected to ditch the notch in the iPhone 14 Pro models to opt for a punch-hole display wherein the front camera will be placed on the top middle part of the screen. The other two iPhone 14 models, that is the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Max will come with a notch similar to the iPhone 13 that will house the front camera and other sensors.
