Alleged iPhone tipster iHacktu ileaks reveals some tasty rumored specs for the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max
According to a tweet from iHacktu ileaks, Apple is focusing on delivering the two premium 2022 iPhone models with benchmark Antutu scores above 896,000 each which would be close to 60,000 Antutu points or 7% higher than the benchmark scores achieved by last year’s models. So iHacktu ileaks calls for more powerful performance with this year’s iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Rumored iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max specs for this year’s Apple handsets
But that’s only half the story. What about the battery life? Typically the very next year after a major iPhone battery increase, Apple takes its foot off the pedal and lets things calm down before restarting battery capacity growth. For example, the iPhone XS Max carried a battery of 3300mAh which rose a whopping 20.3% to 3969mAh for the iPhone 11 Pro Max.
Instead, iHacktu ileaks is calling for another massive hike with the iPhone 14 Pro Max expected to gain another two hours and 10 minutes of battery life. Our iPhone 13 Pro Max battery tests show the battery lasting 25 hours while streaming video. According to the tipster that figure would rise to 27 hours and 10 minutes with the iPhone 14 Pro Max. Other updates for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are also expected to be “amazing” including updates for the new rear camera array. The CPU performance increase in the A16 Bionic chipset is rumored to be 42%, with a 35% hike for the A 16 Bionic’s GPU.
The tipster does not have a sterling reputation according to Jon Prosser
But before you get excited, Jon Prosser, the man who brought iHacktu ileaks to our attention, didn’t have such wonderful things to say about the tipster stating that it has become clear that the ileaks account has been held together by “Elmer’s glue and chewed up bubblegum.” So should we simply ignore these specs? Not so fast. As Prosser points out, the tweet from iHacktu ileaks that mentions the benchmark specs was shared by tipster Shrimp Apple Pro who does have a solid reputation.
If the battery specs are correct, we can expect another huge jump in battery life for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Once considered wall-huggers by Samsung, iPhone users no longer have to stake out a position along the wall of an airport or in a shopping mall bathroom in order to claim a power outlet. As typically happens with Apple and Samsung, Samsung makes fun of Apple (such as when Apple dropped the 3.5mm earphone jack from the iPhone, or when Apple stopped shipping the iPhone with a power adapter.
Keep in mind that this tipster does not have the kind of solid track record that you’d want to hang your hat on, but not to fear. With approximately three months left until the iPhone 14 models are unveiled, there is still plenty of time for more specs (and from more legit sources) to be passed along.
