Apple launched the iPhone 15 Pro series with the A17 Pro processor in September last year. In terms of performance, this chip from the US tech giant even surpasses Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Android phones. Apple is currently working on the A18 Pro chipset for their next iPhone. And now the Geekbench 6 benchmarking score of this processor has been revealed Which indicated a significant improvement in single-core performance compared to the previous A17 Pro.
Geekbench 6 score of Apple A18 Pro
Apple is rumored to use the A18 Pro processor in all models of the iPhone 16 series to be launched this year. For those interested buyers who are thinking of buying the standard iPhone 16, this is really good news. Because last year’s standard and Plus models of the iPhone 15 series used the older Apple A16 Bionic chipset, which was first seen in the 2022 iPhone 14 Pro series.
Some buyers disliked the standard iPhone 15 and 14 due to the lack of upgrades in the processor department. However, since the iPhone 16 will have a new chip, customers are expected to gravitate towards this model. Now, the Geekbench 6 results of the upcoming Apple A18 Pro have given a glimpse of the performance of the next generation iPhones.
According to the benchmark database, the Apple A18 Pro scored 3,500 points in the single-core test and 8,200 points in the multi-core test. Single-core performance is much better than the previous generation A17 Pro.
Note that the A17 Pro scored only 2,960 in the single-core test and 7,231 in the multi-core test. On the other hand, Geekbench scores of Qualcomm’s next-generation Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 processor were also leaked recently, showing much better multi-core performance than the Apple A18 Pro.
In the leaked Geekbench Six benchmark, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 scored 2,985 points in single-core and 10,762 points in multi-core, which is close to the scores of the M3 chipset for Apple’s iPad and MacBook models.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 powered phone is expected to hit the market in the fourth quarter of this year. After the launch, a comparison between Apple A18 Pro and Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 will reveal who will win the title of the best processor of 2025.
