Popular YouTuber Filip Koroy (also known as EverythingApplePro) announced that the iPhone 12 Pro offers real-world speed improvements that have not yet been scalable compared to synthetic benchmarks or even Apple’s own marketing. In fact, the iPhone 12 Pro not only destroys previous iPhones, it also wipes out the long-standing advantage of competing Android phones: multitasking.
The Koroy test opens a large number of apps before reopening each app in turn. This is a popular test because it mimics real-world usage. The iPhone 12 completes the test in just 2 minutes 49 seconds, compared to more than 4 minutes for both the iPhone 11 Pro (runs hot but in line with previous tests) and the iPhone XS. Koroy attributes this to gains from Apple’s impressive A14 Bionic chipset, but the unsung hero here is RAM. The iPhone 12 Pro is the first iPhone with 6 GB of RAM. This allows the phone to save all the apps in memory without having to reload them.
“Every single application I opened after running a 4K video export was still preinstalled in the background. I’ve never seen this on an iPhone before. That is new. Apple finally fixed the multitasking problem on iPhone. ”
In the past, Apple’s decision to equip iPhones with 2 to 4 GB of RAM has resulted in iPhones losing out to Android competitors because they cannot hold many apps in memory, which leads to long reload times. This offsets the big performance gains Apple’s A-series chips have long had in terms of speed over Android phones. This can be seen in the video below, where the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra comes from a long way off to overtake the iPhone 11 Pro.
And it was a huge benefit. While synthetic benchmarks have given Apple a huge edge over its competitors for years, in reality our smartphone usage is mostly about switching between apps, rather than the results we get from benchmarks that try to target the CPU and GPU to maximize.
And this is worrying news for Samsung and Google at different prices. In the upper price segment, the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra and the Note 20 Ultra are already more expensive than the iPhone 12 Pro Max, and now they are also clearly superior. Meanwhile, Google’s been risky putting a lower-performance chipset into the Pixel 5 (whose speed was already way behind last year’s iPhone), and now it looks like the A14 Bionic will be in the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini the sword can do it.
In fact, the biggest concern for Apple at this stage is less likely to be competition than the next iPhone. A legal settlement with Qualcomm forced Apple to publicly announce plans for iPhone modems for the next four years, and here the iPhone 13 looks like a game changer. For everyone else, it became much more difficult.
