The iPhone X has a huge advantage over iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, because it is the first iPhone that uses the new A10 Fusion processor.
The A10sX is a 14nm chip with four cores (two cores each) that can handle a massive amount of processing power.
Apple claims that the A10 is “the most powerful mobile processor in the world,” and it’s certainly impressive to see.
However, the A-series chip is also capable of handling tasks such as video transcoding, image decoding, and even voice transcription.
Apple says that the iPhone X is more than twice as powerful as the iPhone 8 in a few key areas.
For example, the iPhone 9 and iPhone X use the same A-Series processor, but have different memory subsystems and display interfaces.
The iPhone 9 uses a new RAM subsystem, and the iPhone 10 uses a much newer A- series chip.
The A10 processor is designed for both new and old hardware.
Apple has also redesigned the A9X and A10X, adding two more cores and upgrading the display to an OLED panel.
Apple says the iPhone 11 and iPhone 12 will be the “biggest updates to the iPhone ever.”
That’s a good way to put it.
The new iPhones are expected to include a slew of new features, including a faster camera, a redesigned Siri, a Siri Pro app, and much more.
