Both Apple’s new iPad mini and iPhone 13 series use relatively the same A15 Bionic chipset, but it has now come to light that iPhones are actually more powerful than tablet.
The iPad mini and iPhone 13 Pro series have a 5-core GPU unit instead of a 4-core version on the iPhone 13. That said, it appears that Apple has dropped the chip inside the new small tablet.
The tablet’s CPU is clocked at 2.9 GHz, while the iPhone 13 Pro is clocked at 3.2 GHz, according to some Geekbench benchmarks. The tests say that the difference between the devices is two to eight percent, so this may just be a margin of error found in the tests.
It will be interesting to see if iPad mini users notice the lower clock speed once the device actually reaches people’s hands later this month. The chip is still faster than Apple’s A14 Bionic from last year, so it should be fast enough for most everyday tasks.
