iPhone 7 and VR?

I’m not one to spend time on rumors, and rarely invest much energy in speculation, but the technical specs dug up by Softorino while hacking away on the next version of WALTR are intriguing.

The benchmarks they’ve run show that the A9 chip in the iPhone 6 Plus can already handle VR video playback. VR requires 2 streams of at least 4k video quality, and the A9 chip can provide that. An A10 chip in the next iPhone should reasonably be more than capable of it, which makes speculation about an Apple venture into VR a reasonable conclusion.

See the details and results at Softorino’s blog.
