While the Apple iPad mini 6 and iPhone 13 lineup come with the A15 Bionic chipset, Geekbench results indicate that there could be slight differences in performance between the two devices. 

According to MacRumours, the benchmark results reveal that the A15 chipset in the iPad mini 6 is downclocked to 2.9GHz compared to 3.2GHz in the iPhone 13 models. In single-core and multi-core scores, the iPad mini 6 clocked an average of 1,595 and 4,540 respectively, which is about 2 - 8 % lower than the iPhone 13 models.

Even though the iPad mini 6 may come with a downclocked A15 chipset, it is still up to 40% faster in single-core performance and up to 70% faster in multi-core performance compared to its A12-powered predecessor. 

The iPad mini 6 is already available for pre-order on Apple Online Store and is priced from S$749.
