iPhone 5S iOS 12 beta 1 vs iOS 11.4 speed test [video]

06 June 2018 2

Apple is well-known for releasing products with great hardware and software optimization along with software updates for a longer period of time. But it is also known for releasing those updates to older devices and making them slower on purpose so that users are forced to upgrade to a new device. This is the reason when it unveiled iOS 12 recently, it specifically mentioned that performance has been improved and older devices work faster with the newer software version. This particular claim has now been put to test in the speed comparison featuring the iconic iPhone 5s running the latest iOS 12 beta 1 and older iOS 11.4.

Starting with the boot time comparison, you can notice that the iPhone 5s with iOS 12 started up faster. This is the first sign of improvements on the newer software which was visible throughout the test. Both devices opened all the apps at almost same speed but in comparison, iOS 12 was a tad faster. It is not a huge difference but its enough to know the difference and to be happy about if you have an iPhone 5s.

The same difference is visible in benchmark results where benchmark apps are running faster on the newer version. While the score comparison is not a big one, it does represent those improvements and a slight increase in the speed. All in all, the new iOS 12 beta 1 feels like a boon to the iPhone 5s and we can expect it to get better with future updates and by the time it becomes available for public release.

Well, I haven't yet seen the video. But what I must say is that if Apple has brought out enhancements to the iOS 12, that is just a cover up act for what they have been caught with.
