Tech enthusiast Naveen Tech Wala has recently shared on X an image of a rumored benchmark test result summary for the iPhone 15 Pro. According to the post, the unit’s A17 Bionic chip has obtained 31% higher single-core performance compared to the current A16. It also shared numbers pertaining to the multi-core performance of the chip. And although the difference is not phenomenal in the said section, it can still be considered a pleasing improvement — if these numbers are actually real.

The post mentions the “iPhone16,1” code identifier for iPhone 15 Pro, which was discovered in the tvOS 17 beta earlier. It also lists other previous details leakers have divulged before, making the test report look plausible. This includes the info about the 3.70 GHz maximum clock speed and a 6-core CPU info shared by well-known Apple leaker @URedditor earlier this week.
Nonetheless, the main highlight of the post focuses on the single-core performance of the A17 chip, which reportedly hit 3269 points. Compared to the Geekbench 6 results of the A16 Bionic, this could translate to a 31% improvement. Meanwhile, the post shares that the new chip’s multi-core performance reached 7666 points versus the 6173 points of A16, giving us a 24% increase. Lastly, the summary shows the A17 chip getting a 30669 Metal score points for the Computer Benchmark.
If the numbers are all true, this could mean some performance gains for the new iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, which are both expected to sport the A17 Bionic chip based on TSMC’s 3nm process. However, while this is highly likely, there are still no other reports that can support the numbers shared by the post. With this, we still advise our readers to take the claim with a pinch of salt.
