With the recent leaks of the iPhone 12, which were considerably worse than good, there was growing tension about how Apple’s new models would stand out. Now we know.
The iPhone 12 range will not only be fast, but will shatter the rest of the industry, according to new information provided by Komiya’s prolific industry. The tipster reveals that Apple’s new A14 chipset within the range will offer CPU and GPU gains of 40% and 50% respectively. This equates to a multi-generational increase in the iPhone’s A13, which is already the fastest smartphone chipset on the market.
Plus, that makes sense. Last month, popular YouTuber Filip Koroy (aka EverythingApplePro) revealed that the A14 would offer a massive performance upgrade to compete with the iPhone 8’s A11 chip over the iPhone 7’s A10. changing leap into play, with the A11 offering 70% improved multitasking performance, but even its high-performance CPU and GPU cores were only 25% and 30% faster. Meanwhile, in January the iPhone 12 set out to define the MacBook Pro.
Compared to the more modest recent gains (A13 20%, A12 15%), how has Apple jumped again? The big factor is the passage of the A14 from a 7nm to 5nm manufacturing process. This means more transistors in the same space (Koroy says 15 billion Vs 8.5 billion on the A13), as well as higher electrical efficiency. The latter would explain the amazing batteries in the line of the iPhone 12.
But is speed a big selling point? I think so. While plans for the so-called Apple Silicon on Macs and MacBooks are exciting news, the real appeal of its ever-better presence on iPhones is longevity. As a result, while nice updates from the crowd have hit the rock, the A14 has the potential to turn the iPhone 12 into the line of some of history’s most future smartphones.
During this turbulent weather, this might be the nicest crowd you like.
