Early benchmarks for the iPhone 7 show some impressive performance from Apple's new A10 Fusion processor.

With an all-new four-core design, the A10 Fusion chip's CPU has two high‑performance cores and two high‑efficiency cores. The high‑performance cores can run at up to 2x the speed of iPhone 6, while the high‑efficiency cores are capable of running at just one-fifth the power of the high‑performance cores. That means you get the best performance and efficiency when you need it.

Daring Fireball's John Gruber notes that the A10 Fusion's performance is so impressive that the iPhone 7 benchmarks higher than any MacBook Air ever made!

The fastest MacBook Air (11-inch Early 2015) benchmarks at an average score of 3236 for single-core performance, slightly less than the iPhone 7's single-core score of 3261.

The iPhone 7's performance looks even better when up against its competitors. The closest rival is the Samsung Galaxy S7 with a score of just 1806, followed by the Galaxy Note 7 at 1786, and the S7 Edge at 1744.

But unlike an Android, it won't be usable after two OS updates.

My iPhone 6 and my wife's iPhone 5 have had all of the updates and are still going strong.

Maybe some of you are missing the point. The MacBook air is a trash computer and got beat by a phone, which means Apple should not be screwing around with laptops or desktop if they are going to only make incremental hardware upgrades. This further is insulting to people having to pay a premium for hardware that literally becomes inferior towards the competition in a matter of months
Wooooow, I don't even... - September 16, 2016 at 2:39am
I'll have you know just because a computer is beaten by a phone doesn't mean it's trash, but why do you think computers with upgrades is a thing!? I love my MacBook even if it is a tad bit underperformed by the 7, but I have upgraded it to OWC with USB mini SSD and it is now beastly, so what do you know?

You just proved that arrogance allows for a disparity of performances, not only you bought a MacBook pro, then you had to upgrade afterwards in whatever time frame. MacBook air is trash because there are several competitors including apple themselves that produced products to directly compete and destroy the MacBook air
