League Of Legends: Wild Rift Releases For iOS This Year, Uses iPhone 12 A14 Chip And 5G

Riot Games appeared on stage during Apple’s iPhone 12 event to announce that League of Legends: Wild Rift will arrive on iPhone devices later this year. The mobile adaptation of the wildly popular MOBA League of Legends comes at a time when another hit multiplayer game–Fortnite–remains unavailable on iOS devices.

An official release date for League of Legends: Wild Rift was not confirmed; we just know it will release sometime in 2020. The announcement was made while Apple officially unveiled the iPhone 12, the company’s latest flagship phone. The exact phones that support Wild Rift were not shared, but we do know it’ll take advantage of the iPhone 12’s new A14 Bionic chip and 5G functionality. How exactly it will utilize the new chip was not shared in great detail, but Riot touted the “fast speeds” that the new line of iPhones will allow for when playing Wild Rift.

Apple’s Tim Millet discusses A14 architecture, future chip designs

In an interview published on the eve of Apple’s “iPhone 12” launch event, Apple VP of platform architecture Tim Millet has explained some of the work that went into the A14 Bionic system-on-chip, and what it means for the future of Apple’s chip designs.

Revealed in the iPad Air launch during Apple’s first special event, the A14 is widely anticipated to make an appearance during Tuesday’s “Hi, Speed” event, where Apple is expected to unveil its 2020 iPhone lineup. Millet offered more details about the A14’s design and creation.

Made using a 5-nanometer process, the A14 packs in 11.8 billion transistors onto the chip, up from the 8.5 billion of the A13, with the changes enabling Apple to be more precise in how it uses the chip to shape the user’s experience.

“One of the ways chip architects think about features is not necessarily directly mapping [transistors]

Apple’s Tim Millet talks A14 Bionic, machine learning in new interview

Apple’s Vice President of Platform Architecture offers insight on the new A14 Bionic processor, the importance of machine learning, and how Apple continues to separate itself from its competitors in a new interview.

According to Apple, the A14 Bionic offers a 30% boost for CPU performance, while using a new four-core graphics architecture for a 30% faster graphics boost, compared against the A12 Bionic used in the iPad Air 3. Against the A13, the benchmarks suggest the A14 offers a 19% improvement in CPU performance and 27% for graphics.

In an interview with German magazine Stern, Apple’s Vice President of Platform Architecture, Tim Millet, offered some insight into what makes the A14 Bionic processor tick.

First benchmark indicates A14 is major upgrade from A13

Benchmarks for the iPad Air 4 have seemingly surfaced, indicating the A14 Bionic expected to be used in the “iPhone 12” range offers more performance than the high-powered A13 Bionic and the iPad Pro’s A12Z Bionic.

Apple is due to launch the “iPhone 12” in the near future, and the fourth-generation iPad Air hasn’t gone on sale yet, meaning no-one has been able to try out the latest tablet model to see how responsive the new A14 system-on-chip is in use. In benchmarks spotted by Twitter user “Ice Universe” offers what could be the first benchmark for the tablet, and a first glimpse of what could be powering the 2020 iPhone models.

The single GeekBench benchmark for an “iPad13,2” from October 2 indicates it is a tablet with the motherboard number J308AP. Serial leaker “l0vetodream” pointed out the J308AP refers to the iPad Air 4 with cellular, rather
