There is no confirmed information yet, but there are many rumors that this year’s iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro will come with different processors. Before that, all new models had the same chips, regardless of whether it was the iPhone 13 mini or the 13 Pro Max. At the same time, different models could have, for example, differences in RAM capacity, but the processors were still the same.
The main reason for this decision was the semiconductor crisis, which is also superimposed by production problems due to the pandemic, which is closing factories here and there due to new outbreaks of the coronavirus.
Before that, each new iPhone model increased power compared to previous smartphones. And it seemed that this year this tradition will be broken because only Pro-models provide new chips. MacStories, citing a tweet from ShrimpApplePro, reports that the iPhone 14 will still have a performance boost.
Despite using *some* old hardware, iPhone 14 non pro still have some overall performance boost over the iPhone 13 series
New cellular modem, new internals design, etc

The editor also adds that the iPhone 14 should increase the RAM capacity from 4 to 6 GB, as in the current Pro models. In addition, the modem should change, which will be physically smaller, more energy efficient, and also provide more performance.
