Why do you care? I'm still on Apple A9 and do everything I do every day. One of these days people won't even have money to buy anymore. The only thing good about Apple is the stock.

Still, Android is much better when comparing price to performance with so much variety. Android has something for everyone, for the rich and for the poor. Android is the King of Mobile System. Just like Windows is the King of Desktop System. Just some of the similar in performance mobile processor build for Android Device are MediaTek Dimensity 9000 Plus, Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1, Dimensity 9000, Exynos 2200, Snapdragon 888 and so many more coming.

TSMC's 3nm A17/A18 may be a better choice.
