iOS 9.3.3 Speed Test Shows Noticeable Speed Boost In New iPhone Models
iAppleBytes have conducted an iOS 9.3.3 speed test comparison against iOS 9.3.2 that shows all the necessary details updated in the latest iOS firmware. The test is carried out on a range of different iPhone models including the iPhone 4s and all the way up to the most recent iPhone 6s. Here's how the result pans out on all compatible iPhone models.
Starting with the iPhone 4s, which is the oldest iPhone to support iOS 9, the speed bump can be seen on certain areas of the OS. Launching apps is a little bit faster on the iPhone 4s running iOS 9.3.3 as compared to iOS 9.3.2. However, iOS 9.3.3 seems to take a little bit longer to boot up on the iPhone 4s. Nonetheless, it's not a major drawback considering the internals are way too old compared to the latest iPhone models. Here's the video of iOS 9.3.3 speed test comparison with iOS 9.3.2.
Other than the iPhone 4s, iOS 9.3.3 seems to be noticeably faster on the iPhone 6s when it comes to booting up. However, this is not where the update ends. iOS 9.3.3, when compared head to head with iOS 9.3.2, shows negligible performance improvement. Both iOS firmware offers near identical speed when launching apps, multitasking, loading websites and more. The same can be said about the iPhone 6 as booting the device is faster and the rest of the experience is pretty much the same.
Narrowing down further, iOS 9.3.3 also boots up iPhone 5s faster and it's also quicker in loading certain types of apps. While the update does not jump up the performance by a huge margin, the difference is fairly noticeable. However, the same can not be said about the iPhone 5. iOS 9.3.3 speed test on for the iPhone 5 does not appear to mark much of a difference. The performance is more or less the same on both iOS firmware.
So the end result can be put together based on the device that you own. iOS 9.3.3 seems like a decent upgrade for users who own iPhone 5 or above models. If you're not looking forward to upgrading your iPhone 4s, it would be best if you resist the iOS 9.3.3 update. If you have already installed the update, you'll see that it doesn't move mountains in the performance department. Nonetheless, installing iOS 9.3.3 on the iPhone 4s would certainly not slow down the device. So that's a plus.
