We already have a lot of messages pass by the look of the iPhone 7 and the absence of the headphone jack, but on the specifications of the inside is still little known. Today, we may have a first look at the performance of the iPhone 7, as it is apparent from the benchmarks.
iPhone 7 Will Be As Fast As The iPad Pro
As there appeared a rumor that the chips for the next generation iPhone, presumably the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus will be exclusively manufactured by the chip maker TSMC. Since then, it remained silent and we have virtually no further information concerning the Apple A10 soc. A Chinese Weibo user brings it possible today to change some details about the Apple A10, though it still would go to early test results of the chipset.
As we all know that the A9 chip in the iPhone 6s is produced by the both Samsung and TSMC, but Apple iPhone 7 would only have chosen the TSMC. This is partly due to the fuss surrounding the iPhone 6s chip, causing Samsung is slower than TSMC. The TSMC technology would also ensure that the chip can be made smaller, while performance is considerably improved. As the rumor says that Apple iPhone 7 would first make a lot thinner than the iPhone 6s, but this now will save only a fraction.
According to the new information to make the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, the company will use the new Apple A10 soc. Earlier this week tests were launched and the new chipset again seems to be a bit faster, but the step at this time is not as great as in previous years.
On the benchmark app Geekbench 3, the A10 manage to achieve a single-core score of 3,000, about the same amount as the Apple A9X, which under the hood of the iPad Pro 9.7 and 12.9 can be found.
However, Apple A9 of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus usually scores around 2500 points, which equates to a performance increase of about 18%. That percentage corresponds to the difference between the early benchmarks of the A8 and A9 last year. It is therefore possible in our eyes that the scores will be higher than the current case. The final difference between the A8 and A9 was less than 43%.
Another option is that Apple has more focused this year on improving the battery life by making the chip more efficient. Earlier this week we heard instance even though the iPhone 7 battery will have the capacity of 1960mAh, an increase of 11% compared to the 1750mAh battery of the iPhone 6s.
