Apple revealed three new iPhones two days ago and one of the highlight features that Apple talked about was the new A12 Bionic chip that powers them. This is the latest processor designed by Apple and its said to be the “most powerful mobile CPU” available on the market which means that the new iPhones have the upper hand over their competition. Although, we couldn’t stop from asking ourselves just how powerful these iPhones really are and we decided to take a look at their GeekBench results.
For those unfamiliar with this platform, GeekBench is an online website that smartphone manufacturers use to test out their latest devices. GeekBench gives accurate results that show us just how powerful some smartphones are and to make things even better, all GeekBench listings are public so everyone can watch them. With that said, let’s get into it.
We are going to start with iPhone XR because this is the “entry-level” iPhone. This device is the cheapest out of all the new iPhones that Apple recently unveiled and it ships with a 6.1-inches LCD display. iPhone XR is powered by Apple’s latest iOS 12 and it comes with 3GB of RAM. Moreover, iPhone XR scored 4,745 points in the single-core test and 9,367 points in the multi-core test.
iPhone XS Max
iPhone XS Max is the device that will hold the title of being Apple’s flagship smartphone until next year. Therefore, the expectations bar is set really high for iPhone XS Max.
Nonetheless, iPhone XS scored 4,713 points in the single-core test and a whopping 10,266 points in the multi-core test which shows us that iPhone XS Max is indeed one of the most powerful smartphones that Apple has ever made.
