Test and compare the performance of the latest iPhones and iPads with this free and easy-to-use benchmarking app.
Run 3DMark Solar Bay to compare the latest iOS devices that support gaming with real-time ray tracing. Ray tracing is a new technology in games that is used to produce far more realistic lighting.
3DMark Solar Bay is our latest and most demanding test for compatible iOS devices. It has three sections with increasingly higher ray tracing workloads, helping you understand how enabling ray tracing will affect your device’s gaming performance.
3DMark Wild Life is a cross-platform benchmarking app for comparing the performance of the latest smartphones and tablets.
Use 3DMark Wild Life Extreme to test and compare the latest iPhones and iPads as well as Apple Mac computers with the M1 chip. Or run the original Wild Life benchmark to test older iPhone and iPad models.
3DMark Solar Bay, Wild Life, and Wild Life Extreme offer two ways to test your device: a quick benchmark that tests instant performance and a longer stress test that shows how your device performs under longer periods of heavy load.
3DMark benchmarks measure GPU performance by rendering a demanding game-like scene in real-time. The faster the scene runs, the higher your benchmark score.
With its charts, lists and rankings, 3DMark gives you unique insights into the performance of your device.
- Measure the GPU performance of your iPhone and iPad.
- Compare your score with others from the same model.
- See how your device compares with the latest models.
- See how performance changes with each iOS update.
- Search, filter and sort the in-app rankings to compare popular devices.
3DMark is a free app. There are no ads or in-app purchases. Download it today and join millions of people who choose 3DMark for accurate and impartial benchmark results.

Ratings and Reviews
Disappointed it doesn't play the movie
I get that this is a render test, but it's a big disappointment that it just shows you a tiny array of little frames instead of actually playing it out at whatever frame rate full screen.
Benchmark won’t start
I use 3DMark extensively for my PC since I overclock my rigs and I love their benchmarks and stress tests. When I saw their new mobile device test I decided to give it a try to see just how bad my aging iPhone 7Plus was performing.
Unfortunately, the benchmark won’t get past the loading screen of the character holding the scanner or whatever that device is. The loading bar at the bottom won’t show any progress at all and the app will just sit in the loading screen indefinitely until I force the app to close. It does this for both the regular and Unlimited offerings.
I’ve tried restarting the app, restarting the phone, and reinstalling the app. Nothing works. It’s possible there is something wrong with my phone but it runs everything else I install on it without any problems. This is the only app I have on it that is not working correctly.
Developer Response ,
Could you please update to the latest version of the 3DMark Wild Life benchmark app and try running the test again? Please let us know if the issue persists.
I love this app so much. If you could, in the future, add a even harder stress test? I run the wild life extreme on my mac and it is locked at 60 fps and it needs something more challaeging. Please desighn a harder stress test! But beside that, i love this app.
