In the launch of the latest iPhone 13, Apple said their A15 Bionic is 30% faster than its competitors.
Apple has just officially introduced its iPhone 13 series through an event titled “California Streaming.” These three latest iPhone variants come with various improvements, including the SoC they use.
As is known, Apple uses A15 Bionic for the three variants of the iPhone 13. According to Apple, this SoC has better performance than its competitors (which we assume is A14 Bionic).
At the event, the Cupertino-based company did not specifically discuss the specifications of the SoC. However, there are some points shared by Apple related to the specifications of the A15 Bionic.
They say that the A15 Bionic has 30% better performance when compared to its competitors. However, they did not provide any data to substantiate the claim.
Apple says that they are using 5nm fabrication technology in their latest SoC. In total, the A15 Bionic will have a total of 15 billion transistors, which is larger than the A14 Bionic, which only has 11.8 billion transistors.
The A15 Bionic also comes with the ability to process 15.8 trillion operations per second. Of course, this does sound very impressive to ordinary technology users.
This Soc will also come with a CPU with 6 cores, of which two cores have high performance, and four cores are efficiency cores. Users will also get 4 GPU cores on iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini and up to 5 GPU cores on iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.
On paper, this is an improvement of around 30% when compared to the A14 Bionic. However, they do not provide any information regarding the speed of both the CPU and GPU of the SoC.
Bionic also supports new camera systems, including a new 12MP ultrawide camera and shift sensor from the previous generation Pro Max line. There’s also a new cinematic mode for a dramatic change of perspective.
The company promises better battery life, over 1.5 hours longer for the iPhone 13 mini than the iPhone 12 mini, and 2.5 hours longer for the iPhone 13 than the iPhone 12. This stems in part from a more efficient CPU.
