Speed tests conducted across a range of iPhone and iPads when iOS 11 beta first dropped showed that its performance was not up to the mark when compared to the latest iOS 10.3 release. With the release date of final iOS 11 build closing in and six betas already out, it’s once again time to compare how iOS 11 compares to the latest iOS 10.3 release in terms of performance.
As speed tests conducted by YouTuber iAppleBytes show, Apple has managed to considerably improve the performance and benchmark scores in iOS 11 since the first beta. While the performance of most of the newer iOS devices is similar to that of iOS 10.3.3, older devices like the iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, and iPad Air do show a small dip in performance.
Even on relatively devices like the iPhone 6s, iOS 11 does not bring about any performance improvements. Knowing Apple’s past track record though, I guess users should just be happy that the performance of their iPhone will not decline considerably once iOS 11 lands.
Apple is still a few beta releases away from the final release of iOS 11 and it is possible that by the final release, Apple would be able to improve the OS further to squeeze out additional performance from its older devices.
