The data collection time for this list is from September 1st to September 30th, 2021. The results appearing in the list are the average running score, not the highest running score, which is more representative. The list scores are based on Mobile Update. The V9 version is the main version, and the running score of the V9 version cannot be compared with the scores of the previous version.
1st place: iPad Pro 5 (12.9-inch)
Average running score: 1218903
Second place: iPad Pro 5 (11-inch)
Average running score: 1147325
It’s no surprise that even the latest iPhone 13 Pro Max top version is still no match for the M1 in terms of running scores, but in fact, these two products cannot be compared. After all, the products suitable for the M1 have already arrived on the PC. On the other hand, the A15 mainly focuses on mobile terminals. Comparing computer chips with mobile phone chips seems to be a bit out of whack.
In September, the iPad Pro5 series with two M1 chips still dominated the pack with an average running score of more than 110W+. I hope that a new M1 chip will appear at the new product launch next year to compete with it.
Third place: iPhone 13 Pro Max
Average running score: 854218
As the top model of the iPhone 13 series, the iPhone 13 Pro Max appeared in the iOS performance list as soon as it was released, and ranked third. The performance meets everyone’s expectations for it, but the appearance seems to be a little different. It’s satisfactory, but it doesn’t matter, those who should buy the iPhone will still buy it, and those who should scold will still scold.
The Apple A15 processor is still based on TSMC’s 5nm process, with a total of more than 15 billion transistors, an increase of 3.5 billion compared with the previous generation, an increase of 30%.
In terms of specifications, the CPU part of the A15 processor adopts a six-core design, including two 2-performance large cores and four high-efficiency small cores, with performance leading by up to 50% compared to competing products.
The GPU part adopts a 5-core design, which is one more core than the previous generation A14. However, Apple has carried forward the superb knife technique this time. Only the iPhone 13 Pro and the iPad mini 6 are equipped with a full-blooded version. The iPhone 13 The GPU of /13 mini has cut off one GPU core and adopted a quad-core design.
The neural network engine has also been upgraded this time. The number of cores is still 16, but the computing power per second has reached 15.8 trillion times, which is 34% higher than that of A14.
The next seven products in this list are: iPhone 13 Pro with an average score of 833,920 points, iPad Pro 4 (12.9-inch) with an average score of 823,362 points, iPad Pro 3 (12.9-inch) with an average score of 821,536, and iPhone 13 with an average score of 821,536. 818321 points, iPad Pro 4 (11-inch) average score 808960 points, iPhone 13 mini average score 786713 points, iPad mini 6 average score 774517 points.
It can be seen that the previous generation iPhone 12 series products disappeared instantly in the list. Four new models of the iPhone 13 series and the new iPad mini6 all appeared in the top ten positions on the list. The two high-end iPhone 13 models even more It also surpassed the iPad Pro4 in running points. There are talented people in the country, and a new generation replaces the old with this kind of mood.
That’s all for the September iOS performance list, see you next month.
