In a new speed test that compares iOS 5 with iOS 9 and every major release in between, we get confirmation that older firmwares are faster on aging hardware.
Apple’s new iOS 9.3 beta brings a number of nice new features to iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, including Night Shift mode, Touch ID lock for Notes, CarPlay improvements, and more. But is it any faster? Not according to these speed tests.
66 percent of compatible devices have already been updated to iOS 9, according to Apple, but 25 percent are still clinging onto iOS 8 and earlier releases. It’s thought speed concerns may have something to do with that — but can the latest iOS 9.2 beta change that? Find out in the speed tests below.
The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are being marketed under the slogan “The only thing that’s changed is everything” and that is an apt description of this year’s changes. Unlike previous years where the “S” model offered only a small bump in the hardware, the iPhone 6s, and 6s Plus bring a lot to the table.
