Leaked figures have allegedly revealed the benchmark scores of Apple’s A17 chip for the upcoming iPhone 15 Pro, indicating a staggering leap in performance over the iPhone 14 Pro, according to sources.
While the figures posted to Weibo have not been verified and cannot be found on GeekBench.com, the alleged scores of 3019 for the single-core test and 7860 for the multi-core test would be a significant increase over the iPhone 14 Pro’s comparative scores of 2504 and 6314.
Although the source of the leak remains unverified, the Weibo account has accurately leaked Apple’s plans in the past, including the new yellow iPhone 14. Additionally, the scores have been picked up by verified leaker ShrimpApplePro, who has cautioned readers to take the results with a grain of salt.
If the A17’s benchmarking scores are confirmed, it would signify a significant leap in performance for the iPhone 15 Pro and its new chip. This is also promising news for the M3 Apple silicon chip, which is built on the same 3nm architecture.
TSMC, the chipmaker behind the technology, has previously claimed that the 3nm process will offer up to 70% higher logic density, resulting in a 15% speed boost at the same power levels as 5nm, or a 30% power reduction at the same speeds.
The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro are expected to be unveiled in September, with an iPhone 15 Plus and iPhone 15 Pro Max completing the same lineup as last year. Other anticipated upgrades include USB-C, design tweaks, new buttons, and a Dynamic Island for the entire range.

While the leaked benchmark scores cannot be confirmed at this time, they do suggest exciting prospects for Apple’s upcoming iPhone 15 Pro and its A17 chip. As always, it’s important to exercise caution when it comes to leaks and rumors, but if these scores are accurate, they could represent a significant leap forward for Apple’s mobile technology.
