Apple recently announced the iPad Air 4, but it was unable to get it ready to ship immediately. The company said we could get it in October, and just a few days out of the month we already see references appearing online.
The new iPad Air is also the first device with Apple’s A14 chip.
Based on the numbers shown by the reference values, it is clear that this is a fast chip. The Geekbench points 1583 for single-core and 4198 for multi-core compare favorably with the previous iPad Air, complete with the previous A12 processor. In fact, we can look forward to performance of almost 50% better.
This should also give us an idea of what we can expect from the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro when they ship later this month, presumably with the A14 processor in tow.
This new chip will make the new iPhones the fastest yet, although those who expect a huge speed jump may be disappointed. However, it all depends on how Apple uses extra power.

More interesting is the news via Twitter-leaker Fudge that Apple is working on a new Apple TV with an A14 or similar chip inside.
Apple Arcade gets big money in it. There are currently titles in the works that aim to compete with Breath of the Wild, and that is why new A12X / Z AppleTV, “A14X-like” AppleTV and Controller are in the works.
Some games require A13 and up to run 💁🏼♀️

They go on to say that all this is thanks to Apple Arcade, with Apple throwing money at the game subscription service. This will apparently mean more meaty games that require a faster processor to run.
