The news: Apple’s cheapest phone appears to be just as fast as their most expensive, according to the first Geekbench benchmarks that have appeared online.
- With single-core scores in the low 1,700s and multi-core scores around 4,700, the A15 Bionic processor in the newest iPhone SE appears to be just as snappy as on iPhone 13 models
- Apple’s A15 chip inside is also responsible for the moderate battery life improvements
Sam’s take: I was curious if Apple would underclock the iPhone SE A15 in some way (considering that the phone is markedly cheaper than anything else Apple sells). It looks like they didn’t, and it’s just as fast. This $429 phone is gonna fly.
