Apple is reportedly planning to launch a 6.1-inch iPhone 14 & 14 Pro, and a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max & Pro Max in September this year. 

Back in March, Ming-Chi Kuo reported that the first two tiers of iPhone 14 (expected to be the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max) will sport an A15 chip. 

He also reported that only iPhone 14 Pro models will equip a new A16 Bionic chipset. A new report from TrendForce corroborates with this information.

Industry report by Trend Force it’s mentioned that "unlike prior offerings, only the latest processors are employed in the Pro series" of the iPhone 14. 

Apple launched iPhone 13 and 13 mini with A15 chip along with 4GB of RAM and a 4-core GPU while the Pro models used A15 chip with 6GB RAM and a 5-core GPU. 

This time, iPhone 14 as well as iPhone 14 Max may also use the A15 chip but with more RAM and GPU power. 

The reason for this hardware decision is likely due to industry-wide supply chain shortages. 

Regardless of reason, A15 chip is no slouch with current competing chipsets and having entry-tier iPhones with the chip will certainly not be a deal breaker.
