Ax is a family of high-performance 32-bit and 64-bit ARM system on chips designed by Apple exclusively for their consumer products.

Overview[edit]

Since the introduction of the original iPhone in 2007, Apple has been developing a series of chips designed exclusively for their own consumer products. Those system on chips are found in all iPhones, iPod Touches, iPads, Apple TVs, and Apple Watches. While initial models used IP cores licensed from ARM Holdings, since the introduction of the A6 in 2012, Apple has been developing their own microarchitecture for their chips which have become considerably more powerful than other ARM-based microprocessors.
