Apple may equip all iPhone 16 models with the same generation A18 chip, ending the chip segregation seen in the last two iPhone generations.
This move likely aims to ensure all iPhone 16 models can support Apple Intelligence features.
The unified chip strategy could still feature performance variations, with the Pro models potentially using an enhanced A18 Pro version.

In a potential departure from its recent practices, Apple may be set to equip all four iPhone 16 models with the same generation of its A-series chip. This information comes from code discovered in Apple’s backend by Nicolás Alvarez. (via MacRumors)

Over the last two years, Apple has differentiated the standard and Plus models from their Pro counterparts by equipping the former with older generation chips. For instance, the current iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus models feature the A16 Bionic chip, the same one used in the iPhone 14 Pro series, while the iPhone 15 Pro models boast the newer A17 Pro chip.
