The iPhone 12 loses to the iPad Air 4 in AnTuTu, it also lags behind the iPhone 11 in graphics

Apple A14 bionic is the first commercially available 5nm SoC, and it doesn’t just power the new iPhone 12 list, but also the iPad Air 4.

Apple says the chip’s CPU and GPU are roughly 50 percent faster compared to competing smartphone SoCs. It even says the new chipset is good enough to challenge the performance of laptops.

Apple apparently limited the performance of the A14 Bionic on the iPhone 12

Benchmarking website AnTuTu made an important observation about the A14. The iPad Air 4 outperformed the iPhone 12 in a benchmarking test, although they are compatible with the same chip. The tested devices had the same memory configuration.

The iPad Air 4 achieved an overall score almost 17% higher than the iPhone 12. The tablet’s CPU is 9.5% faster than the iPhone and offers 30% faster graphics performance.

The benchmarking website believes that the A14’s performance was limited on the iPhone 12 due to its comparatively lower battery capacity to avoid overheating issues. The same could be said for the iPhone 12 Pro, considering its supposed scores.

Since the iPhone 12 Pro Max apparently has a lot bigger battery Than iPhone 12 Pro, we expect its performance to be closer to standard.
The website also notes that iPhone 11 Pro it beat the iPhone 12 in the GPU test, although it has a faster GPU.

The A13 Bionic is already a very capable chip and the latest comparison makes us wonder if the A14 Bionic in the new iPhones is doing something innovative for the average user, as well as giving them the bragging rights.
