Tweaked to fool the benchmarks
While the Tame Apple Press has been praising the GPU performance innovations of the iPhone 7’s new A10 Fusion chip, they might have been fooling themselves.
As Snapdragon 830 is 10nm
We are quite surprised that few people concentrated on one of the major downsides of the Apple iPhone 7 and 7 Plus – its clunky quad core A10 Chip. Far from being cutting edge, Apple is using 16nm and not the 10nm manufacturing process as many expected. Most of its competitors will soon announce their 10nm SoC.
A quad-core chip
While it did not reveal a lot of precise information, we now know that Apple's iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will come with a fancy new quad-core A10 Fusion SoC.
No 3.5-mm audio
We are roughly just a month away from the iPhone 7/iPhone 7 Plus launch. The iPhone 6SE seems like a more appropriate name since we don’t expect any big upgrade from these phones, but then again, maybe we'll be surprised.
Apple A9 or A10 we wonder
It looks like 2015 iPhones will be getting 14nm SoC chips manufactured by Samsung and GlobalFoundries.
