iOS 12 brings significantly improved performance and longer battery life on older iOS devices such as iPhone 5S, why?
Apple released iOS 12 software update to the public on Monday, Sept. 17.
In the past, software updates on older devices gave us a lot of issues like slow down, crash and bugs etc. People have to feel safe, right? Once you install, it’s hard to downgrade to iOS 11.
But this time, you do not neet to be afraid to upgrade.
It’s clear that Apple has foucused its effort especially on the oldest devices and you will see performance improvements. Thus iOS 12 seems to be worth installing. Don’t hesitate. This updates will give new life to your old devices. Many users have already installed and pleased with the results.
The question now arises. Why do older devices work well?
Apple has described, “Camera launches up to 70 percent faster, the keyboard appears up to 50 percent faster and typing is more responsive. When there is a lot going on across the system, apps can launch up to twice as fast.”
Apple’s deepest foucus is optimizing the system when it’s under load. That’s where you need performance the most and where iOS 12 really shines.
To speed up on iOS, the company started with the silicon. Apple has designed SoC by themselves for more than a decade to have control of final products.
Apple’s collaboration with their chip team has enabled to optimize iOS across the full range of A series silicon.
CPU traditionally responds to increased demand for performance by slowly ramping up clock speed. When detect needs a burst of performance, like when you begin scrolling or launching an app, make ramping up processor performance instantly to its highest states, delivering high performance and to ramp it down just as fast to preserve battery life.
You know that the tech giant makes not only hardwares but also software. Updates to focus on performance is nice for users.
iOS 12 is compatible with any device that currently supports iOS 11 including 2013’s iPhone 5S, iPad Air and 6th-gen iPod touch.
