There are just a few months left before Apple debuts the “iPhone 12” lineup, and as usual, images of components destined for the new handset are beginning to surface. Today images of an Apple A14 RAM component surfaced on Twitter.
The images, posted by “Mr. White” claim to show the RAM portion of an A14 chipset. Mr. White is a well-known leaker that has previously shared accurate information and images of future Apple products.

Other than some numbering, the images don’t reveal a great amount about the A14 chipset, or the devices they are expected to be installed in. The “2016” date on the chip refers to the 16th week of this year, 2020. That indicates the chip was manufactured in April.
The chipset is expected to be the first manufactured by TSMC using its 5nm chipmaking process. Leaked benchmark scores indicate the chip is as much as twice as fast as the A12Z used in the iPad Pro.
Over the weekend, images of what was alleged to be “iPhone 12” screen units appeared on Chinese social media before being removed for unknown reasons.
Apple is expected to release four different iPhone 12 models later this year: A 5.4-inch iPhone 12, a 6.1-inch iPhone 12, a 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro, and a 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max.
