“The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus shouldn’t arrive at your door for a few more days – I sure know mine isn’t here yet – but a lucky customer from California has already received her rose gold iPhone 6s, and she posted a slew of unboxing images as well as the first benchmark test results,” Chris Smith reports for BGR.
“And yes, benchmark scores say Apple’s iPhone 6s brings insane performance improvements compared to last year’s models,” Smith reports. “In fact, the numbers suggest the iPhone 6s is as powerful as Apple’s 2015 12-inch Retina Macbook.”
“Adrienne Alpern took to Twitter to express her excitement about the unexpected delivery, posting pictures of the iPhone 6s’ retail packaging and the [rose gold] device itself,” Smith reports, “[Alpern] put the device through a Geekbench 3 benchmark test at the request of others, posting the results on Twitter. According to the images above, the iPhone 6s scored 2292 in the single-core test, while multi-core tests yielded a 4293 score… And looking at the basic Retina MacBook’s Geekbench scores (1.1GHz dual-core Intel Core M CPU), you’d find 2295 for the 64-bit single core test, and 4464 multi-core test.”
