Analysis Reveals that Apple Does Not Slow Down Older iPhones on purpose

For a while, it has been said that Apple encourages its customers to buy new Apple devices by releasing software updates. To test if the speculation is much or less close to reality, Futuremark, a benchmarking company has collected data since 2016 from seven different iPhone models and three different versions of iOS. 100.000 results were collected during the process, in which each of the three versions were uploaded to and tested on each of the seven versions of iPhone devices. As explained in the following, the outcome of the analysis is not really consistent with the speculation.

iPhone 5S, the oldest one with iOS 11

The first set of data collected from iPhone 5S, which is the oldest iPhone that can run iOS 11. iPhone 5S is also known for being the first iPhone model that has a A7 as CPU and 64 bit chip. It is observed that, iPhone 5S has improved in terms of GPU after the software updates, although the opposite would be the expected observation.

On the other hand, regarding CPU, the device has reflected some decrease in performance. Additionally, performance of the devices do not really show a significant difference when İos9 and İos11 are compared. Other iPhones, iPhone 6, iPhone 6S, and iPhone 7, are seem to have had some decrease in performance as they are being updated, but again, not a significant amount.

At the end of the evaluation, Futuremark officially said that their test results show that there is no relation between the speculation and the reality, moreover the performances of iPhones were not going downwards that much as they are being updated.

Additionally, it is necessary to know that test environment can be different than the Daily life usage. It is arguable that we do not have any information if user’s real time experience was considered during tests.

The 5th iOS 11 Beta Is Available Now: “A giant step for iPhone.”

Apple has released its fifth beta version for iOS 11, which hosts major innovations. The test process continues for iOS 11, which has been announced by Apple during WWDC 2017 event and is exciting for iPhone and iPad users with dozens of different innovations. Continuing to stick to the two-week update period, Apple released iOS 11 Beta 5 on August 7th, after the fourth beta release on July 24th.

iOS 11 Beta 5

Let’s take a look at the changes that come with the fifth beta release of iOS 11, which will be released concurrently with the new iPhone model in September. Here is what Apple says about iOS 11:

iOS 11 sets a new standard for what is already the world’s most advanced mobile operating system. It makes iPhone better than before. It makes iPad more capable than ever. And now it opens up both to amazing possibilities for augmented reality in games and apps. With iOS 11, iPhone and iPad are the most powerful, personal, and intelligent devices they’ve ever been.

The testing is now for iOS 11 Beta 5!

With an update of about 300 MB, iOS 11 Beta 5 is hosting the same bug fixes and improvements as its predecessors. We have to remind that owners of iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPad 3 and iPad 4 will not be able to take advantage of iOS 11 because the devices with only 64 bit support are supported.

To install the iOS 11 Beta 5 update for developers, you need to install the UDID record of your device or the developer profile. Here are the devices that can install the iOS 11 update:

  • iPhone 5s, iPhone SE, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus
  • iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 2, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 4, 9.7 inch iPad, iPad Pro, 9.7 inch iPad Pro, 10.5 inch iPad Pro

Since Apple’s iOS 11 is still in beta stage, iOS devices may experience stability issues such as hanging, application incompatibilities, resetting. If you have a problem with these types of devices, it’s a good idea to make a backup before you load your device to reload your device after a lower slot is available to reset your device.

iOS 10.3.3 Is Available Now: What is New?

Apple completed the testing process for iOS 10.3.3, bringing the final version to users. So what does iOS 10.3.3 offer to iPhone and iPad users? Apple had released the very first beta update for iOS 10.3.3, right after iOS 10.3.2, which it released in May.

The brand offered six beta forms in about two months, and at last they are done with the testing procedure and iOS 10.3.3 is now available for iPhone and iPad users. The new iOS version, which comes with an update of about 140 MB, offers minor enhancements compared to iOS 10.3.2. It apparently focuses on overall error correction and security updates as opposed to new features. The only innovation coming with this version is three wallpapers that are special to the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.

iPhone and iPad users can install iOS 10.3.3 by following Settings> General> Software Update, or using iTunes.


Should You Upgrade To iOS 10.3.3?

Apple iOS 10.3.3 might be little however it is vital. The security fixes are important and it has no major new bugs, at any rate none which have so far ended up being more than segregated occurrences.

The flipside is iOS 10.3.3 releases rather excessively numerous bugs, particularly on the off chance that it is (not surprisingly) the last arrival of iOS 10. iPhone 5, iPad 4 and sixth era iPod touch clients will be baffled to be left with these forever.


What is Next?

By and by I have a sneaking doubt Apple may even now push out iOS 10.3.4, however there is right now no indication of it in beta testing and discharges typically cover.

All discussion now will concentrate on iOS 11. With a vigorously upgraded iPhone 8 propelling close by it, iOS 11 changes both how iPads work and is required to convey an all new Function Area for iPhones – whether all models get the last mentioned, be that as it may, will be worth viewing.

Recently Released iOS 10.3.2 Offers New Updates For iPhones And iPads

Last Monday, Apple came out with an announcement of iOS 10.3.2 offering new updates for iPhones and iPads. The updates are basically covering iOS 10.3 and the subsequent iOS 10.3.1. The first update was aiming to ensure security of iOS 10.3 against the risk of attack sent via Wi-Fi.

What is new in iOS 10.3.2?

The final version of iOs has been released focusing on bug fixes, security improvements and performance enhancements. iOS 10.3.2 removes two bugs in iBooks that allow a malicious book to open websites without permission. There was a very similar bug in Safari. With this update, this is also corrected.

With iOS 10.3.2, the bug causing some applications to gain root privileges has been fixed. Also, in previous versions of iOS, there were errors that caused some applications to gain access to core privileges and corrupt memory usage. A malicious SQL query also caused memory usage problems. Security is everything in our private iPhones, also especially when it is an iPhone memory can be counted at the top of the list to improve. Everybody might have problems with an iPhone. However, Apple is taking the control to remove this problem. And good news, Apple-lovers! These errors have been corrected by iOS 10.3.2.

IOS’s notifications feature caused some services to be rejected. Apple has also fixed this problem with the update. IOS 10.3.2 also removes the issue of certificate validation for untrusted certificates. Along with these, 23 errors reported to developers by developers have been reported to have been fixed with an update.

After the first update, we can say the second one is not a huge update. This slight changes might be an signal of upcoming bigger updates. Actually, rumors giving an indication of iOS 11 are spreading pretty fast.

If we ask what makes Apple Apple, we may have many answers. One of them is that Apple really cares about their customers’ satisfaction and knows how to be a love-brand by functional features.
