The headphones come with a microphone and accelerometer, an infrared sensor, whereby to determine whether they are inserted in the ears. Despite the tiny dimensions, autonomy is stated at five o’clock.
A single-chip system Apple’s A10 Fusion actually contains four processor cores and consists of 3.3 billion transistors, even though all the leaks talked about the two cores. Configuration will include two high-performance cores that are 40% faster cores in the A9, as well as two energy-efficient cores. Productive GPU increased by 50% compared to the previous generation. In comparison with the first generation iPhone GPU performance has increased by 240 times.
