APPLE'S latest iPhone is seriously fast. According to new benchmark tests, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus boast as much speed as a MacBook Pro – and are twice as fast the best Android smartphones on the market.

iPhone 7 is incredibly fast.

The next-generation Apple smartphone, which was announced last week, is powered by the company's own A10 Fusion chip, which has two high-performance cores and two high-efficiency cores capable of running at just one-fifth the power of the high-performance cores.

Apple says the new chip runs three times faster than iPhone 6 at as little as half the power.

Geekbench Scores

And the latest figures from Geekbench appear to back-up the Cupertino Company's claims.

Geekbench scores are designed to help users quickly compare performance across different computers and different platforms without getting bogged down in details of specs.

When comparing scores – higher scores are better, and double the score indicates double the performance.

According to the figures, iPhone 7 has double the single-core performance than the fastest Android smartphones, including the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy Note 7.

Express.co.uk published its review of the Apple iPhone 7 earlier this week, praising the new smartphone for its water resistant design, improved camera and better battery life.

iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus top-out at an impressive 3,450 score for single-core performance.

Meanwhile, the latest Apple smartphone tips the scales at 5,630 for multi-core performance.

Samsung Galaxy S7 scored a respectable 1,806 score for single-core performance.

Although, it did bag a similar score to the iPhone in multi-core performance.

OnePlus 3 scored 1,698 and 4,015 in single- and multi-core performance, respectively.

But it's not just smartphones that the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are besting in performance.

The new Apple handsets score better on both single- and multi-core than any MacBook Air ever shipped.

In fact, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus perform similarly to the 2013 MacBook Pro, which has a single-core score of 2885 and multi-core of 5619.

The news comes as Apple revealed it run out of the iPhone 7 Plus and the new Jet Black models.

iPhone 7 will become available in UK retail stores tomorrow, but the majority of models will not be available as the initial stock has already sold-out online, Apple confirmed.

As it stands, every storage and colour variation of the iPhone 7 Plus has sold-out.

The Jet Black variation of the iPhone 7 has also run-out.

US mobile carriers Sprit and T-Mobile said they have received a record number of orders for the new iPhones.

A statement from Apple reads: "We couldn’t be happier with the initial response to iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, and we are looking forward to beginning sales through our retail stores and partners around the world.

"Beginning Friday, limited quantities of iPhone 7 in silver, gold, rose gold, and black will be available for walk-in customers at Apple retail stores.

"During the online pre-order period, initial quantities of iPhone 7 Plus in all finishes and iPhone 7 in jet black sold out and will not be available for walk-in customers.

"Availability at partner locations for all finishes may vary and we recommend checking directly with them.

"Customers can continue to order all models in all colours on apple.com.

"We sincerely appreciate our customers’ patience as we work hard to get the new iPhone into the hands of everyone who wants one as quickly as possible."
