    just in case anyone didn't want to install any of the options or just want to do something easier, the latest update to Geekbench now can identify your chip.

    "Motherboard: N66MAP" on mine translates as iPhone 6S Plus TSMC.

    mAP = TSMC
    AP= Samsung

    Additonally, 66 or 71 refers to the model. (6S or 6S Plus)

    Edit: Been told this is old news but there we are anyway!

    The score may be lower than normal as I have a lot of apps open, bluetooth headphones in too.

    OK. From next generation iOS 10 will lock developers from gathering motherboard version number, just like iOS 9 disallow developers gathering process info.

    Have a TSMC version :)

    This is the second 6S Plus I have had, exchanged first one due to dead pixels. I now wonder what the first one device I got had under the hood :D

    Someone I know has a 6S and they just have AP at the end, not MAP or MP like you said. What does that translate to?

    Do they not have a lower case "m" before the AP? As that's how it will be displayed :)

    No, just AP at the end.

    Okay, original post needs fixing, then. It says mAP=TSMC and MP=Samsung.

    TSMC so apparently runs cooler and uses slightly less battery!

    The difference is minimal and you have to be fairly consistent in order to notice anything, it is about 3% difference if I remember rightly with regards to the battery. Either way you need to be direly naive to send it back over the Samsung chip xD
