Like what you saw in the earlier Apple’s two most incredible devices iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S having faster and robust processors, it seems that iPhone 5 too is getting some of the best processor now. There are couples of news and rumors seen surfacing over the internet confirming the same. The device iPhone 5 is seen getting a brand new A6 processor for the upcoming Apple’s iPhone 5 device and the iPad 3. This is considered to be faster than all the previous devices of Apple. The word macroscalar is a term given by the company to stress on the power factor found in the next generation A6 chip. Let’s dig deep to find what’s there in the store about this new powerful processor to seen the upcoming device:

The story behind the term Macroscalar: Apple was seen applying for the trademark to secure this term ‘Macroscalar, just to avoid being used by its rival companies. Apple not only protected this trademark in US but also did the same in Hong Kong. It is certainly surprising to see this term being published and discussed in public domain even before the product is still to hit the market. May be Apple wants both its rival and consumers to know that the company is coming out with something big in the near future?
The term Macroscalar and iPhone 5: When you look at this very term Macroscalar, it is nothing but a processor named with this term which produces contingent secondary instructions during a compile time. This means that the coming set of instructions is ready to be processed the moment the first set is complete. If you speak in a layman terminology, the macroscalar processor is meant to efficiently and quickly process any given task. You will not see any kind of delay since it is all set to implement the coming next task. Whereas looking at the previous iPhone 4 device, there was some delay seen while doing any task by the processor. Hence when you opened any application, there was some delay which was reported. This will not be the case with macroscalar processors which will appear in the iPhone 5 or iPad 3 devices. Interestingly, this processor will not consume much battery power as what you saw in the case of A5 processors, which compelled users to complain about the weak life of iPhone 4S devices.
Macroscalar is not a new one: This is not the first time Apple has tried to use powerful processors. Earlier in 2004 Apple was seen some powerful and specific kind of processor, however, they were not successful in developing the same due to some technology issue. In the recent patent application, the company however has mentioned to use it for the first time. But the fact is, this time the company was successful to develop a powerful processor and termed it as macroscalar processor which will be seen in iPhone 5.
With Macroscalar processor, Apple is seen planning to come up with something big in a form of iPhone 5. Looking at the technicalities and technology behind this processor it can be a game changer thing for Apple. Certainly embarking with a processor which is not only powerful and less battery consuming, Apple is all set to turn the table. For the smartphone users, this can be a big boon where they get a device which not only processes fast but also consumes less battery power. Although a couple of Android phones and iPhone 4S was seen with powerful processors, but these had the same issue of battery drain, which is certainly not the case of iPhone 5 since it has macroscalar processor.
