As was expected, Apple didn’t introduce the iPhone 12 during the Time Flies event, but it did announce the A14 Bionic – the chip that will power the upcoming phones.
Apple says the A14 is about 40 percent faster than the A12, on which the A13 has a 20 percent lead.
Based on that, we can surmise that the A14 Bionic will result in a 15 percent boost in performance.
Reasonable guess: Apple A14 will focus more on reducing power consumption and heat, as well as improving AI performance.

More importantly, the A14-powered iPhone 12 Pro Max didn’t even score as much as Snapdragon 865 Plus-fueled phones.
In short, the iPhone 12 Pro Max is seemingly in development at the moment and Apple will presumably optimize the performance further before releasing the device.
Even if that’s not the case, the A13 Bionic is a beast and even a 10 percent bump in performance would amount to a lot.
Snapdragon 875 could end up being faster than the A14 Bionic
Even when he typed the wrong word excitedly, A14 progressed so slowly, giving the Snapdragon 875 a great opportunity.

The benchmark scores also suggest that the iPhone 12 Pro Max doesn’t have a 120Hz screen
The iPhone 12 Pro Max AnTuTu ran out, and the theoretical performance improvement of the A14 chip compared to the previous generation A13 is small. The UX score is basically unchanged, indicating that the screen refresh rate of this machine is 60Hz[吃瓜]
