Back in September last year, the first rumors appeared that Apple plans to switch to using QLC NAND flash memory in iPhone 14 smartphones.
Now, sources from the supply chain confirm that in addition to major changes in appearance and removal of bangs, models with 2 TB of flash memory will appear in the iPhone 14 line. At the same time, it was confirmed that we are talking about QLC NAND flash memory.
According to the source, Apple has decided to increase the maximum memory capacity of the iPhone again, in part due to improvements in camera capabilities. In particular, due to the increase in the resolution of the image sensor from 12 to 48 megapixels, as well as support for 8K video, the maximum size of videos will increase significantly. Some Apple partners are already reportedly testing iPhone 14 prototypes with 2TB of flash storage.
At the same time, concerns are again expressed about QLC flash memory. They are because the performance and reliability of QLC is not as good as TLC flash. In addition, the emergence of smartphones with this amount of memory will once again increase the average selling price of the iPhone.
A well-informed informant confirmed that iPhone 14 Pro will get round and oval cutouts.
