Study debunks claims that Apple makes older iPhones slower

10 October 2017

"Our benchmarking data shows that, rather than intentionally degrading the performance of older models, Apple actually does a good job of supporting its older devices with regular updates that maintain a consistent level of performance across iOS versions", the firm notes.

Using the 3DMark Sling Shot Extreme Graphics test Futuremark calculated all benchmark scores from the iPhone 5s across a given month to make its comparison.

A report last week went one step further, stating that Apple was purposely making its elderly iPhones slower to force people to buy the latest model. They all have demanded this feature to come in the next update of iOS 11 and it seems the giant has already approved your demands and bring back the much awaited 3D Touch App Switcher feature back to your iOS devices to do the tasks quickly. There has been a small fall in CPU performance, but not enough to be noticeable, according to Futuremark.

New designs which were approved by the Unicode Consortium - an independent standards body for the image-based language - have been made available to iPhone and iPad users in the company's OS 11.1 update. Something similar happened with Apple's iOS 11.0.2 users.

The firm owned 164,820 shares of the aerospace company's stock after purchasing an additional 27,511 shares during the period. Chelsea Counsel Co. acquired a new position in shares of Leidos Holdings during the third quarter valued at about $301,000.

My iPhone 6s Plus is still performing as well as I want it to, despite the fact that it's a two-year-old device. On the other hand, only Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, and Pixel consumers are operating the new version of the OS. If they still feel like their phone is dragging, though, try to determine if there is some other factor that may be slowing down their device.

New versions of iOS and apps that roll out after a newer iPhone's release may simply not be optimised to work as well on processors inside older iPhone models.

"We looked at data for the iPhone 5s first because, if older devices are being deliberately slowed, the effect should be most obvious with models that have been around for longer", the company said.
