How to test iPhone performance


Bloggers are accustomed to measuring the autonomy of smartphones with their own methods by running different applications – this method is closest to real everyday use. But it’s much easier to find out the iPhone’s performance – just run a benchmark that will run a stress test of the system and give the result in the form of points scored. The AnTuTu application is rightfully considered one of the most popular, but in order to make sure of its accuracy, the iPhone is tested in Geekbench in parallel. Recently, the developers have just released a new version of this benchmark, which has become even more accurate. We tell you how Geekbench 6 works and how to test iPhone for performance now.

The new Geekbench 6 was presented the other day : the new version of the benchmark for measuring the performance of smartphones has become even more accurate. John Pool, co-founder of Primate Labs, which is developing the utility, explained the release of the new version by saying that in recent years the number of cores has increased, cameras have become better, and neural networks have become used in more applications.

What is Geekbench

Geekbench 6 has added new smartphone testing methods , including background blurring in video calls, text processing and transformation, and removing unwanted objects from pictures. The new features of Geekbench 6 are similar to the previous ones, but there are more everyday scenarios among the scenarios.

That is, if earlier the main goal was to overclock a smartphone, measure processor power , now the benchmark analyzes performance when processing large PDF files, the speed of opening web pages and processing high-resolution photos. Geekbench tests have increased in duration to take longer, as this is important for studying load over time and detecting throttling.

The Geekbench update is the first in almost 4 years: the last update was already released in 2019, so now the software is optimized to work with fresh Apple, Qualcomm and Intel chips. They say the new test will allow you to better assess the capabilities of the smartphone. How about really?

How to check the power of a smartphone

The new Geekbench application is similar to the previous one: in any case, it has exactly the same interface and is still free for ordinary users. If you try to test your iPhone in a benchmark , you will see completely different results. Here’s how to do it.

  • Follow the link and download Geekbench 6.
  • After installation, go to the application and click Run CPU Test
  • Wait while the iPhone is being tested.

I checked my iPhone 13 and noticed a major change: testing on Geekbench now lasts a little longer by about a minute and a half. All due to the fact that the load has become more intense, so it takes more time. In addition, if in Geekbench 5 the smartphone scored about 1700 points in single-core testing, now the result has increased to 2040 points. But in multi-core testing, the score dropped slightly: if the old version of the application had 4500 points, now it is slightly higher than 4200 points.

With the iPad Air 2020, things happened a little differently: the results of the tablet rose to 2000 in single-core testing and 5000 in multi-core testing. Compared to the previous version of Geekbench, the increase was about 30%. The fact is that when testing in multi-threaded mode, the application now takes into account the simultaneous operation of all cores, and not their sequential load. This is because modern processors share powerful and efficient cores.

I must say right away that if the results in Geekbench 6 have decreased, it does not mean that the iPhone has begun to work more slowly: there are more testing criteria, and the methodology for summing up has also changed. For example, if earlier the benchmark summed up the performance of all processor cores , now it evaluates how they could work under real loads. Those who are familiar with Geekbench firsthand have probably noticed that there is more data in the report. The following criteria have emerged.

  • Rendering of PDF documents.
  • Background blur in photos.
  • The accuracy of detecting unwanted objects in the image.
  • Improved testing in evaluating game ray tracing, horizon detection, and navigation.

But in GPU tests, things are not so simple: the fact is that they do not actually measure the performance of 3D graphics on a device. Instead, the utility checks the video cores for processing computational tasks, such as detecting faces in photographs. So, if one smartphone runs games quickly, but has a low graphics score in Geekbench, you just need to change the synthetic test using some AnTuTu.
