the iPhone 7 is more powerful than any MacBook Air and is comparable in performance with MacBook Pro 2013
A series of benchmarks from Geekbench allowed us to estimate the performance of the new flagship smartphone the iPhone 7. The device is equipped with processor of latest generation A10 Fusion performance ahead of their Android competitors, and is the most productive iOS.
Testing the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, experts have found two interesting features of the product.
