Important Notes:

Except for ...PhotoOutput, ALL photos are captured @ 30 fps,
& (typically) with perfect OR near-perfect cycle-to-cycle timing !

ALL iPhones with 2.9 GB (OR more) of DRAM
get the ALL-important "Resolution / Color Space" slider on the Home View !

ALL iPhones with 2.9 GB (OR more) of DRAM,
Photosets support the capture of both Full-Res 12 Mpx & 4K photos !

On the iPhone 11, 11 Pro, & 11 Pro Max,
Photosets supports the capture of UN-comp. RGB photos !

On the iPhone 11, 11 Pro, & 11 Pro Max,
Photosets supports the concurrent capture of Audio !

Disclaimer: Apps in Background / Suspended State do NOT consumer processor cycles, but they do consume precious Available DRAM.

As such, they will limit your Capture Performance !

Important Background Info

v7.48 added an updated "Benchmark Mode" feature that enables you to test the Performance Controller in your A-series Processor, a key component of High-Performance Burst Photo Capture.

Please note that the updated Benchmark Mode feature is currently ONLY supported on iPhones & iPads with 3.5 GB or more of DRAM.

In the first column we list the ten iPhones with 2.8 GB or more of DRAM.


The following table lists ALL iPhones with 2.8 GB or more of DRAM, with respect to their (currently known) Burst Photo Capture Peformance.

With respect to High-Performance Burst Photo Capture, iPhones with an A10 or A13 perform FAR BETTER than iPhones with an A11 or 12 !

The chip's "Performance Controller" (i.e., CPU Scheduler) is the reason.

You can think of the Performance Controller as an Internal Bus Arbitor, that sits directly behind the DDR PHY Controller.

We expect the A14's Performance Controller to perform as good, if NOT better, than the A13's Performance Controller.
