Apple has revealed the chip that will power its new 2019 iPhones: the A13 Bionic. And as you%u2019d expect, the company is wasting no time in explaining that it%u2019s the most powerful silicon ever to grace the inside of a smartphone %u2014 just as it has every year for the past three years. But if you care about battery life, you%u2019ll want to pay attention.

%u201CThe A13 Bionic is the fastest CPU ever in a smartphone,%u201D Apple said onstage, adding that it also has %u201Cthe fastest GPU in a smartphone,%u201D too. Initially, it only provided these vague, unlabeled graphs for comparison:

But later in the presentation, Apple dropped some bombshells %u2014 it says the A13 Bionic is also the most power efficient chip it%u2019s ever made by up to 40 percent, helping provide up to four extra hours of battery life for the new iPhone 11 Pro and up to five hours for the iPhone 11 Pro Max. It has hundreds of voltage gates and thousands of clock gates that can shut off power to parts of the chip when it%u2019s not using them.
