    will have a significant increase (>50%) in both cpu and gpu?
    Performance on the 6s is basically on par with modern laptops at this point, doubling the iPhone 6s's benchmarks would bring it up to modern day computer speeds (without a dedicated gpu Ofc).
    Do you ever recon we'll see an increase of at least 50% after this phone?

    yes...for the iP7. the graph at the keynote will be ever so big. they do it every year.

    ... Has a Home button!!

    There's always room in performance increases!!

    the 6 only got a 25% increase. i doubt the 7 will even get that, they'll probably focus on efficiency

    just poking fun at their graphs they post every year. something always gets a stupid high increase in performance somehow.

    Of course, my friend! Moore's Law!

    i think they didn't fully utilize the performance gains of 14nm on the A9 because of low early yields (read that theory somewhere). There seems to be still more potential in the process. But i also think they will go for a moderate performance increase and will go for efficiency instead.

    Yes. Speed will always be increasing. The only limiting factor in all of this is the power source and size of the device. If it stays thin, the power source will need to get better/denser to stay just as compact. If the power source cannot get better and needs to get bigger, the device will not be as thin.

    There is a lot at play with these devices.

    The speed will always increase, but at a point the major gains will be harder and harder to come by. You won't see 50% increases year after year until the end of time.

    I concur. With 3D touch now on the 6S, Apple will get rid of the physical home button very soon.
