Global Top 10 Best Performing iOS Devices in July 2023
The figures in this ranking list were calculated from July 1 to July 31, 2023. The results in the ranking list are average scores instead of the highest scores. The configurations listed are those with the most test results for each model.
Please note that the tests for Android and iOS devices use different graphics technologies, so scores from the two platforms cannot be compared.
No.1: iPad Pro 6 (12.9-inch)
Average score: 1,389,538
No.2: iPad Pro 6 (11-inch)
Average score: 1,279,375
No.3: iPad Pro 5 (12.9-inch)
Average score: 1,199,048
This month's iOS performance rankings are little changed from last month. For the first time, the score of the A15-powered iPhone 14 surpassed the score of the A12X-powered iPad Pro 3 to enter the top 10 of the list, despite the fact that the latter is an older device released in 2018, almost five years ago.
It can be seen that the iPad Pro has always been ahead of the iPhone in terms of performance, and it didn't just start with the M-series chips. Due to the difference in size and heat dissipation capabilities, it is actually difficult for the iPhone to fully utilize the performance of the A-series chips.
The iPad Pro 6, released on October 18, 2022, features an M2 processor with a 5nm process that integrates a total of 20 billion transistors internally, 8 CPU cores and 10 GPU cores, all supporting a pixel density of 264 PPI, a maximum typical brightness of 600 nits, ProMotion Adaptive Refresh Rate Technology, Original Color Display Technology and P3 Wide Color Gamut Display Technology. The 11-inch version has a screen resolution of 2388 x 1668 pixels and the 12.9-inch version has a screen resolution of 2732 x 2048 pixels. The 12.9-inch version also features mini-LED backlighting and localized dimming for a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio and XDR dynamic range display, with a full-screen brightness of 1,000 nits and a peak brightness of 1,600 nits.
Both the iPad Pro 5 (the two iPad Pros released by Apple on April 21, 2021) and the iPad Air 5, which came in fifth place, are powered by the previous generation's M1 chip.
Apart from the different processors, the difference in overall configuration and usage experience between iPad Pro 5 and iPad Pro 6 is not that big, and the various features and functional support are basically the same, so as far as the usage experience is concerned, iPad Pro 5 is more cost-effective.
The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are powered by the latest A16 processor, and the body is designed with a Ceramic Shield front, Textured matte glass back, and stainless steel bezel.
The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus, on the other hand, are powered by the A15 processor, which is not as good as the iPhone 13 Pro Max and iPhone 13 Pro, which are also A15 processors, in terms of performance.
