Apple A6 Specifications and Overview


This chipset has 2 x Apple Cyclone A6 CPU(s) with. 1024 KB L2 cache. It belongs to the mid-high level category of chipsets that can easily run most apps out there. The lower clocked CPU is used under battery saving conditions while both of them may be activated under extreme workloads such as gaming, benchmarking or multitasking but it depends on whether App will effectively use all the CPUs or not.

Number of Cores

This System on Chip has 2 cores clocked at 1.2 GHz. It can provide high levels of performance with great efficiency for today's apps and multitasking. Cores of a SoC have a great impact on the performance as they determine the how the workload is distributed across the chipset as well as the maximum number of apps that can run without stuttering on the smartphone/tab etc.


This SoC was built on Harvard architecture.


This SoC was built on 32nm lithography which results in efficient performance.

Maximum Camera Support

This SoC can effectively support a 16 MP camera at max indicating that it is mostly used on mid level mobile devices


This processor doesn't have 64-bit support. 64-bit support allows a SoC to manage more data along its bus width and allow more quantity of RAM to be paired with the chipset. Apps also run more easily and efficiently on 64 Bit processors.


This chipset has PowerVR SGX543 Graphics Chip. Graphically demanding apps will run properly on this SoC

Phones using this Chipset

Most popular phones using this chipset are iPhone 5c and iPhone 5.
