Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max will hit breakneck speeds on AnTuTu and match lofty iPad Pro 5 levels claims leaker
Some mixed feelings about the iPhone 14 launch are starting to creep in, with some wondering just how much of a performance increase the A16 chip in the Pro models offers over the A15, while others have questioned Apple’s naming scheme in regard to the respective chips. For instance, Ming-Chi Kuo opines that the A15 in the iPhone 14 could be called the A16 or A15 Plus, while the iPhone 14 Pro models get an A16 Pro. A known leaker reckons despite the naming situation, the A16 in the iPhone 14 Pro Max will still hit incredible synthetic benchmark performance heights.
In fact, the same source, iHacktu, has previously claimed that the iPhone 14 Pro Max could hit 950,000 points on AnTuTu with help from a future iOS 16 update. To put that into context, this would be a score that is over 14% higher than the current average score recorded on AnTuTu for the iPhone 13 Pro Max, which is only behind a handful of iPad Pro tablets and an iPad Air 5. However, it appears the tipster has decided to reevaluate his estimate, possibly based on recent Geekbench appearances for the iPhone 14 Pro. The new score now offered is an astonishing 1,200,000 points for an Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max with 6 GB RAM and 256 GB storage.
If the iPhone 14 Pro Max and its Apple A16 chip could manage such a result, it would leave the 2022 smartphone either in top position in the iOS chart or at least very close to the top. The Apple iPad Pro 5 (12.9 inch) with an M1 chip currently holds that status, with 1,204,920 points. It would be an incredible feat, as despite the A16’s likely native ability to outpace the M1, the iPhone has a much smaller construction than the iPad thus offering a smaller cooling solution. As for performance improvement percentages, should iHacktu’s prediction come true the iPhone 14 Pro Max’s score would show a massive 44.4% difference over the iPhone 13 Pro Max, and it would be a jaw-dropping 67.1% ahead of the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
