As expected, Apple did not unveil the iPhone 12 series smartphones at an online event on September 15, but announced the new A14 Bionic processor as part of the iPad, which will form the basis of new Apple smartphones. The new processor is manufactured according to TSMC’s 5nm process technology and contains 11.8 billion transistors. In comparison, the 7nm A13 Bionic chip contains 8.5 billion transistors.
Apple claims the A14 processor is about 40 percent faster than the A12, which in turn is 20 percent slower than the A13. However, the actual performance of the chip is not impressive. The iPhone 12 Pro Max has been spotted on AnTuTu and is only 9% faster than its predecessor, the iPhone 11 Pro Max.
However, the most disappointing fact is that the upcoming Apple smartphone scored fewer points than the Snapdragon 865+ devices. Of course, it may turn out that at launch, the actual performance of the iPhone 12 Pro Max will be much higher, because the smartphone is still in the development stage. However, now it looks like a wake-up call for all fans of the brand. If the A14 Bionic is inferior even to the current flagship chip of Qualcomm, with the release of the Snapdragon 875 Apple will lag even further.
In addition, it was confirmed that the iPhone 12 smartphones will be equipped with screens with a refresh rate of 60 Hz. This is backed up by user interface benchmarks that show similar results to the iPhone 11.
It is assumed that the new Apple smartphones will be presented in October, and will arrive on store shelves closer to November. Then it will be possible to evaluate their performance in real conditions.
