Global Top 10 Best Performing iOS Devices, January 2021
As time comes to February 2021, there will be many points of interest in the mobile phone industry, because many new products will be released. As the pacesetter in new products to seize the market share every year, Apple is no exception. However, there is a high probability that Apple's new phones will be released in March. In this case, let's first take a look at the performance ranking of those products that Apple has released before.
Today, we have released the iOS Device Performance Ranking List in January 2021 according to the data collected from the backstage of Antutu, which is almost still in a stable state because of no release of new iOS products, except for little change.
It should be noted that the data in this ranking list was calculated based on the iOS Antutu V8 and collected for a period from January 1 to January 31, 2021, with the results in the ranking list being average scores instead of the highest scores, which are more representative.
No. 1: iPad Pro 3 (12.9-inch)
Average score: 728,253
The iPad Pro 3 (12.9-inch), which ranked third last month, became No. 1 in one fell swoop. As the largest iPad product equipped with Apple A12X processor, of course, there is no need to say much about its performance. Even in the current Apple Store, it can be difficult for you to find an App that it is hard to run. This time, its average score is over 9,000 points higher than that in December 2020, which proves its strength once again and also shows that the gap between A12X and A12Z processors is actually very small.
No. 2: iPad Pro 4 (12.9-inch)
Average score: 719,476
Since the No.1 product has changed, iPad Pro 4 (12.9-inch), the product that ranked No.1 last month, can only rank No. 2 this time. In January 2021, its average score was 719,476, which was actually higher than the average score of 719,226 last month. However, the score of the No. 1 iPad Pro 3 (12.9-inch) improved too much, compared with 9,000 points, the growth of several hundred points is naturally unmatched.
No. 3: iPad Pro 4 (11-inch)
Average score: 713,177
IPad Pro 4 (11-inch) became No. 3 this time, with an average score of 713,177, which was several hundred points higher than 712,663 last month. However, because the score of No. 1 iPad Pro 3 (12.9-inch) was too high this time, the No. 2 product last month was also pushed to No. 3 this time.
All the above three products are powered by Apple A12 series processors, including A12X and A12Z respectively. However the final results are not entirely processor-based, as the experience also depends on the real usage and the results are only for reference.
The following seven products are: iPad Pro 3 (11-inch) (average score: 692,443), iPad Air 4 (average score: 650,153), iPhone 12 Pro Max (average score: 648,573), iPhone 12 Mini (average score: 620,690), iPhone 12 Pro (average score: 614,074), iPhone 12 (average score: 613,737), and iPhone 11 Pro Max (average score: 533,154).
Among the last seven products, except the last iPhone 11 Pro Max, which is equipped with Apple's A13 processor, all other products are equipped with Apple's latest processor A14.
With the 5nm-process-based technology and 6-core CPU design, the CPU performance of A14 is improved by 40% compared with that of A12 processor; with the 4-core GPU design, the GPU performance of A14 is improved by 30% compared with that of A12 processor. Besides, A14 Bionic is also equipped with the new 16-core Neural Engine, with which the number of cores is doubled compared with the previous generation and up to 11 trillion operations per second can be processed. Therefore, the machine learning performance using this processor has been improved in a groundbreaking way.
In the first monthly iOS performance ranking list in 2021, except for the No. 1 iPad Pro 3 (12.9-inch) and the No. 5 iPad Air 4, which have changed their rankings compared with last month, all other products are still stable in their own rankings, indicating that iOS products are so reassuring.
