Comparison of chip performance on iPhone, iPad and MacBook

At the WWDC 2022 event earlier this month, Apple announced the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro with the M2 chip. After the release of the M2 MacBook Pro, many media have tested the performance and practical tasks of the M2 chip. In the latest comparison, the performance comparison of many chips in the iPhone, iPad, and MacBook is shown.


Macworld charts that share Geelbench 5 results for all the latest processors for iPhone, iPad, and Mac. The publication mentions that different clock speeds for temperature control can lead to different performance.



The “Multi-core” on the left represents CPU performance, and the “Compute” on the right represents GPU performance, and the higher the score, the better.

The A15 Bionic is better than the previous iPad Air’s A14 Bionic, but the performance gap between the two is small, which may be one of the reasons why Apple chose the M1 when it upgraded the iPad Air in 2022. The A15 Bionic in this tablet must be downscaled to maintain proper operating temperatures, so it’s not as fast as the A15 Bionic in the iPhone 13 Pro.

The M1 Pro and M1 Max chips are the faster chips in the MacBook Pro family. Apple will release more powerful M2 chip variants in the coming months, which will further boost CPU and GPU performance.
