Slow iPhone? Apple's iOS updates aren't to blame

Slow iPhone? Apple's iOS updates aren't to blame

This is exactly similar to what users of previous iOS 11 and iOS 11.0.2 versions suffered. Every update in software is built with the latest hardware in mind, and it may be that this slows down an older phone.

While new batteries have greater longevity, through new electrode, electrolyte and controller technology, the battery in your four-year-old iPhone 5S is nearly certainly worse than when it was new.

The only other option is to ensure you have a charger close at hand.

The firm eventually concluded that the longstanding conspiracy theory claiming that Apple slows down older iPhones isn't supported by the data.

Well, would ya look at that?

Using 100,000 benchmarking test results from multiple iPhones and iOS versions, the GPU and CPU performance remained consistent over time. There has been a small fall in CPU performance, but not enough to be noticeable, according to Futuremark.

Futuremark thinks Apple actually does a pretty good job of supporting older iPhones since it sends out regular updates and manages to maintain a consistent level of performance across iOS iterations. It further said that it was clear that iOS updates do not have a significant effect on the performance of the device.

"Entitlement" is a code that app developers can use for anything from setting up push notifications to interacting with Apple systems like iCloud or Apple Pay. Newer features might not be as crisp and snappy.

Hurrah! Now you can really be yourself in emoji form with a new set of long-awaited gender-neutral emojis. The truth is, models like the iPhone 5S last an incredibly long time without any performance hits. Hopefully, these benchmark results will finally put to rest the allegation that Apple is slowing down your iPhone. Music Streaming and the new Radio app With watchOS 4.1, you can stream music, giving you access to any song from Apple Music or your iCloud Music Library, straight from the wrist.
