The Cupertino-based company has also ditched the 64-bit A10 Fusion processor, used on iPhone 7 models. A Verge report also claims that the A10 Fusion chip in iPhone 7 has added to Apple’s anxiety. The current MacBook Pro laptops are powered by Intel Core i5s, i7s processors. The Kaby Lake processor was expected to give 20 percent performance boost along with better battery life.
