One thing you can normally be sure of with a new iPhone, or any new phone in a range, is that it will be more powerful than its predecessor, and that will almost certainly be the case with the iPhone 7, but possibly not by much.

TechTastic.nl spotted a Weibo post, which seems to reveal Geekbench results for the Apple A10 chip, expected to be at the heart of the iPhone 7, and its single-core score of 3000 is only about 18% higher than the 2519 score achieved by the iPhone 6S.

That's a significant difference, but far smaller than the roughly 43% difference between the scores achieved by the chips in the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6S.

It's also a marginally lower score than the 3010 achieved by the Apple A9X, found in the iPad Pro and iPad Pro 9.7.

On top of that, the post claims it's a dual-core chip, just like the A9, rather than the hexa-core processor that has been rumored.

We're hearing that the iPhone 7 could be a modest upgrade in many ways, so will its power boost be similarly small?
