iOS 7 beta vs iOS 6: Speed test


iOS 7 comes with hundreds of new features and improvements, in addition to the complete redesign. But how will the upgrade affect performance?

To find out, YouTube user upster carried out a series of tests on an iPhone 5 running iOS 7 beta and another running iOS 6.1.4 to see whether iOS 7 performance was slower, faster or the same as under iOS 6.

The test covered boot up time, the time it takes to launch apps such as the App Store, iTunes, YouTube, Phone, Compass etc., taking HDR photos, finding an address in the Maps app and page load times in Safari.

Even though the currently available version of iOS 7 is Apple’s first developer beta and hasn’t been fully optimized, the results are quite close.

Please share your experience with iOS 7 beta, especially on older devices like the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S.
