Apple A series

Apple A series

A system-on-chip (SoC) family from Apple that provides most of the processing in iPhones, iPads and iPod touch devices. Based on the ARM CPU architecture, these chips provide the equivalent processing power of desktop computers launched only a year or two earlier than the mobile product. Following are all the SoCs Apple used since 2007, including models prior to the A series. The "X" suffix denotes a higher-performance version of the chip. See process technology and ARM chips.
