iPhone 13 A15

With the anticipated release of iPhone 13 coming closer, rumours increase. Leaker @FrontTron on Twitter has some numbers, that AppleInsider is kind enough to put into perspective.

It’s impressive how apple dominates the mobile CPU space. With last years release of “Apple Silicon” in form of the M1 chip for notebook like computing (and the iPad), the near strategy ain’t too obvious. Notebookcheck.coms interpretation is the next gen M2 will base on the A15 design, but vary in contained cores.

A benchmark on what is said to be the GPU in Apple’s A15 chip, destined for the ” iPhone 13 ,” is 13.7% faster than the A14, maintaining Apple’s lead in mobile performance. A Manhattan 3.1 GPU benchmark test reportedly shows Apple’s A15 chip hitting 198 FPS during the first round of testing.

As advertised by Apple. The company introduced a feature called “App tracking transparency”, that defaults to “do not allow tracking” as of version 14.5, that was released earlier this year. The feature allows device-owners to control which apps can track user behaviour across multiple websites.

Reality is more complex, as always, but it’s still a great ad.

Google’s Project Zero drops a hand full of Zero Day vulnerabilities for the iPhone at Black Hat 2019. Apparently one of them isn’t patched yet. Interaction-less Attack Surface in this context means, it’s wormable, executing code with no human interaction.
