The new thing is the A15 Bionic chip, which is manufactured after the 5nm production node with nearly 15 billion transistors. It houses a 6-core CPU with 2 high-performance and 4 high-efficiency cores for up to 50% faster performance than the one of the leading competition. There’s a 6-core GPU for up to 30% faster graphics compared to the leading competition. There’s also a new 16-core Neural Engine capable of processing 15.8 trillion operations per second. The main camera of the devices uses a new 12MP sensor with 1.7 um pixels, an f/1.6 aperture, 26 mm focal length, 7-element lens, 100% Focus Pixels. It also offers advanced video features such as Rack Focus in Cinematic Mode that locks the focus on a moving object. Cinematic Mode shoots in Dolby Vision HDR.

In addition, the A15 Bionic chip on the Pro models features a 5-core GPU instead of a 4-core one. The displays for this year’s model offer ProMotion with a 10Hz-120Hz variable refresh rate (VRR). For the first time, Apple introduces macro shooting and all rear cameras also support Night Mode. The rear cameras include a 77mm telephoto unit for up to 6x optical zoom, a main wide camera, and an ultra-wide unit.
