That new chip will comply with on from the iPhone 6’s A8 chip and is a sixteen nanometre (nm) processor, for reference, the present A7 chip is 28nm and a decrease determine means a quicker and extra environment friendly chip. The brand new mannequin is being referred to by Chinese language sources because the iPhone 6S, though this seems to be an assumed title somewhat than something official.
