Is iPhone 6s really performing better than most MacBooks, or are MacBooks performing slower than iPhone 6s? Read on to know the real story.

A lot of things have been said about Apple’s latest smartphones, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus since these devices have been launched at the September 9 event. One of the statements which grabbed everyone’s attention was that iPhone 6s will deliver “desktop class performance.” Are the new iPhones really better than MacBooks? Or is it that MacBooks are performing slower than iPhones?


Well-known blogger John Gruber in one of his blog posts about iPhone 6s wrote, “The new iPhone 6s beats the new MacBook in single-core performance on Geekbench.” The point behind “desktop-class performance” and an iPhone faster than most MacBooks is that the processor used in the new MacBooks – Intel Core M – doesn’t allow these laptops to work as fast as you would expect them to. To put it in other words, MacBooks are slower than Apple’s smartphones.

MacBooks are clearly losing their charm now. It is high time for Apple to start taking their laptops seriously before the product gets pushed out of the market completely. When iPad Pro was launched, experts said that the company should have introduced an improved, faster MacBooks instead of a tablet with a bigger screen. We just hope that in time, Apple will once again work towards making MacBooks the best laptops available in the market.
