My guess is Phonearena just isn't a representative test for the A7 or A8. These are very different processors from the rest (64-bit is just one aspect). Power consumption of microprocessors correlates well with the square of the clock frequency. Other things being equal, a chip operating at 2x the frequency of another would be expected to consume 4x the power. The A7 and A8 operate at far lower clock rates than the competition, yet outperform them. The A8 has far more...
Just saw 9to5Mac points to an ilounge.com posting from 3 days ago that suggested the possibility. My observations are qualitative and only based on one use of the 2.1A charger, but it looks like the last 10% (going from 90% to 100% full) goes slow again, as though the speed of charging tapers off. (Likely a programmed behavior to avoid overcharging, overheating or damaging the battery.) Going from 17% to 80% was certainly much faster than with the iPhone charger.
Yeah, like fer sure, man. Give us some more results, so we can conclude.
When is DED going to suss out the facts behind the privacy and security risks of giving keyboard extensions Full Access?
Anybody else notice the 6 Plus charging basically twice as fast when using an iPad 11watt charger? This is nice, considering its much larger battery.   Does the iPhone 6 also charge faster? I don't recall seeing such behavior with the iPhone 5 or 5s.
Download was typically as fast or a little faster with the 6 Plus than the iPad Air. Upload was roughly 50-75% faster with the 6 Plus. Doesn't seem to be LTE-Advanced network here, though. Same network, same location, same server, every time, many times over 3 days: a reasonably good test. Let's see some others' results before dismissing, ok?
As for cellular speed, I see ping times that are about 2.5x slower with the 6 Plus than the year-old iPad Air (AT&T LTE, 3 bars). This is using Speedtest app. 160+ ms for the 6 Plus, ~60 ms for the iPad Air.
The next iteration of the Mac Pro might be waiting on this, but it would also be unlike Apple to completely abandon TB at that time. TB2 also supports twice the through-put.
What, no response on AI today to Eric Schmidt's misrepresentations spewed on the Diane Rehm show today?
Thunderbolt also isn't reversible.   How about a new MB Air that charges via Lightning?
