All secrets of the iPhone X Bionic Chip A11

Apple has implemented a new Bionic A11 processor chip in its iPhone 8 , iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X. It is the most powerful processor in the history of the iPhone , and in this article we will tell you everything you need to know about it.

Phil Schiller, vice president of marketing, and Johny Srouji, vice president of hardware technologies, talked about the importance of Apple's A11 bionic chip in Apple's new bite apple products.

    "We are clearly on a road in which, with so many generations of our products, the most important elements are the chips inside them, which for us are an intrinsic part of the product definition."

The Bionic A11 chip is present on iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus

As mentioned previously, the power of the Apple Bionic A11 processor is not only on the hardware of the iPhone X (the 10th anniversary smartphone) but is also present on the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

The Bionic processor A11 is a small sample of Apple's incredible control over the process of creating a device (design, engineering, manufacturing, production ...). Apple puts a lot of effort into working in depth on the components engineers design and on partnering with other manufacturing companies to create their processors. Apple has full control. And this is clearly reflected in the harmonious and fluid fusion between your software and your hardware.

    "This is something we started 10 years ago, designing our own chips, because it is the best way to customize something that is uniquely optimized for Apple hardware and software." 

What is capable of making the A11 Bionic chip?

The iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X processor is not just an image processing unit. It is not a simple engine. It's a brain. The Bionic A11 chip is capable of managing and managing software processing relative to all smartphone components and technologies (cameras, operating system, facial recognition, artificial intelligence) making its performance according to its usability.

As Phil Schiller said, the Bionic A11 chip is an ideal mix of design, architecture and technological change . This is because Apple, every year, decides whether to improve a technology or create it from scratch.

The high performance that the Bionic A11 chip provides to the operating system of the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X is thanks to the processor has two additional cores and the ability to manage multiple asymmetric processing. The A11 Bionic chip is 70% more energy efficient and is up to 25% faster than its predecessor , the A10 chip.

For example, the most powerful games on the App Store require the use of multiple processor cores. But things as simple as text predictions or Siri suggestions also need high CPU performance.

The artificial intelligence of the Bionic A11 processor

Attention to the small details of the engineering team in charge of designing the architecture of the bionic chip A11 has allowed Apple to manage interesting SoC functions like the Neural Engine.

This innovative feature may be one of the most important of the Bionic A11 Chip. It uses artificial intelligence in a mobile CPU , causing the processor to "think" and act in a different way than the other hardware components of a smartphone.

    "When you look at applications and software, there are certain algorithms that are much better using a functional programming model." 

This premise includes the face recognition features of the iPhone X and its Face ID, as well as augmented reality and automatic detection of objects from your cameras . All these functions use neural networks, a learning system and artificial intelligence.

Throughout this last decade, Apple has taken a long journey in the creation of its processors. From the manufacturing process of 65 nanometers to the manufacturing process of 10 nanometers . At first they used only 100 million transistors, now more than 4 billion.

    "Doing this year after year and bringing complexity to the limit ... I think we have a world-class team." 

But despite the shocking data from the Bionic A11 chip, the creation of smartphone processors has not yet reached its limit. Wonderful things await us in the world of technology.
