This Is Chipset Information of 16 Upcoming Apple Devices

Apple 16 upcoming devices

Recently, a source just shared with us detailed information about the processor that will be used by Apple inside their 16 upcoming devices. As per the source, the chip identification code (CPID) list indicates that 8 upcoming Apple devices will feature the A14 Bionic, A17 Pro, and M2 chips.

There are two upcoming devices A14 Bionic and A17 Pro as well as four upcoming ‌M2‌ devices. MacRumors believes they involve the following products:

  • A14 Bionic: iPad (11th generation) with Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi + Cellular configurations
  • A17 Pro: iPad mini (seventh generation) with Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi + Cellular configurations.
  • M2: iPad Air (sixth generation) comes in 10.9 and 12.9-inch screen sizes including Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi + Cellular versions.

If today's leaked information is correct, it seems that Apple will not bring a performance upgrade to the iPad Gen 11 because the iPad 10 currently uses the A14 Bionic chip. Meanwhile, the current sixth-generation iPad mini features the A15 Bionic chip. Previous speculations hinted that the device may come equipped with the A16 Bionic SoC so the A17 Pro chipset is mentioned in the new rumor will be an impressive upgrade.

There are also 8 additional identifiers for two unreleased chips that are likely related to 4 models in the iPhone 16 line and the next-generation iPad Pro in 11 and 13-inch screen sizes. It is known that the next generation ‌iPad Pro‌ is rumored to launch later this month and is equipped with the M3 chip that Apple first introduced in October 2023.

Apple 16 upcoming devices

According to the information provided, it appears that all models in the iPhone 16 lineup will be equipped with the same A18 chip, which aligns with earlier reports. A source who shared this information with MacRumors mentioned that although the entire chip line shares the same CPID, the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max are expected to feature a branded "A18 Pro" chip.

However, it's possible that certain modules within the standard "A18" chip found in the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus may be blocked or disabled for differentiation. We'll have to wait for further updates to confirm this.
