Apple’s iPhone 7 gets even closer to the desktop

“People aren’t stupid, but even smart people can be misled, and misleading is what the recent deluge of ‘iPhone 7 will be boring’ nonsense will turn out to be, once Apple takes the wraps of its new, hyper-connected device,” Jonny Evans writes for Computerworld.

“Apple is expected to shove a version of its new A10 series processor inside its new iPhone,” Evans writes. “This is going to be a very big deal indeed, as the A10 chip appears to be at least as fast as the A9X processor you’ll find inside an iPad Pro.”

Evans writes, “What this means is the new iPhones will be not only the most high performance smartphone you can get, but will stay that way for years as no one else has anything that comes close to this in real world tests.”

Apple’s ‘boring’ iPhone 7 series set to surprise and delight – July 8, 2016


    1. Don’t get freaked out! Apple makes A-series processors for the iPhone and then hyped-up “X” versions for the iPad. If the A10 is as fast as the A9X that currently drives the iPad Pro, then that is a significant performance boost for the iPhone 7. And that also means that an badder A10X with extra graphics cores and such is upon the way for the next generation iPad. It is all good…really.

  1. The A10 could differ in terms of “features” and “not speed”. Although this is not likely…..but it is definitely “imaginable”. All he is saying is “imagine” if the A10 doesn’t improve on speed over the A9X….just being the same speed as the A9X is going to be a very big deal.

    Surprised I had to explain this to you.

      1. I am loving this! Haha ha haaaaaa!

        Almost as entertaining as those “Stupid Americans” videos on You Tube. You know the ones where they ask questions like where does “Kentucky Fried Chicken” originate from? Or, name a country beginning with U. And you see this puzzled look on the stupids face. This is kind of entertaining in that same kind of way.

        Anyway, let me just give you a little HINT, Mr. “Genius”.

        Hint1: Units of distance are [L] i.e. Km, miles, yards, inches etc. Or even “Light Years”. Thats right, “Light Years is the same as, say, a Km. Distance requires no sense of time.

        In equation form……

        Distance = velocity.time ……OR
        [L] = [L].[T]/[T].

        The [T]’s merely “cancel” out.

        1. Cant say I didn’t try. But you carry on….., believing that a phone will be “Light Years” faster. Or should I say many many Km’s faster.

          Oh, nice use of the WIKI card. You played that so well. You must get lots of opportunities to do that?.

    1. As is “parsecs”, Herself. 😉 Oh, dear… they had to go and REPEAT that, so many years later!

      And, Yeah, you have no clue what you are talking about. Light year is like an inch, only – really – big. Saying “inches faster” or “light years faster” is gibberish.

  2. We’ve seen this movie before. I would like Apple to do an Android phone with FT, iMessage, photos and iTunes, effectively killing off the other phones. As booting in Windows helped desktop and laptop sales, an Android phone that plays nice-nice with Apple’s biggest software advantages would cause an early death to Galaxy because Galaxy users don’t need business apps or apps that smart people use their phones for.

  3. I want an iphone that I can put in a dock and then connect a keyboard and mouse to it and also have it connected to a high resolution external display like a real computer. I believe this will happen someday.
