Now that Christmas has come and that there is no longer any discussion about the availability of the iPhone 14 during the holiday period, there are some important rumors about this range of smartphones that are causing enthusiasts to discuss. Indeed, it seems that not everything has gone according to plan at Apple.
In this regard, according to what reported by MacRumors and 9to5Mac (original source is The Information), the Cupertino company would have originally had other plans for the iPhone 14 Pro related GPU. More precisely, the original intention of Tim Cook and associates would have been to make an important generational leap in this sense, looking to the future in an ambitious way.
According to rumors that recently emerged on the Web, however, the initial intentions of Apple engineers would have been far too ambitious. Indeed, in an attempt to add new graphic potential linked, for example, to ray tracing, it seems that in the end the internal prototype of the iPhone 14 Pro consumed too much energythus leading to headaches in terms of autonomy and thermal management.
Everything would have been “discovered” in a late stage of the project, so much so that in the end Apple should have “hastily” abandon plans for the next-gen GPU, returning to base its ambitions largely on what has already been seen with the previous generation. In short, there would have been an “error” on the part of those who worked on the project, which would be the basis of an important generational gap in the GPU field. It also seems, again according to rumors, that the team dedicated to the task has been “reviewed”, as well as that some managers have been dismissed.
