IOS 14 is finally publicly available. Many people are interested in whether the new version is faster than iOS 13. And if you compare it with iOS 12, iOS 11 and even iOS 10? Has iOS 14 performance improved?
Previously, iOS updates slowed down older iPhones until Apple changed that with the release of iOS 12 in 2018. Since then, the company has tried to maintain the speed of even older models. The iOS 14 update is a great example of this. If we compare iOS 14 with iOS 10.3.1 and iOS 11.4.1 on the iPhone 6s, then with the new version the smartphone launches applications and games a little faster. The difference is only a few milliseconds, but it is still there. Plus, in everyday use, the difference can be even greater.
If we compare the new version with iOS 12 and iOS 13, then there is no difference in performance on the iPhone 6s. This also applies to the Geekbench results. The difference on the iPhone 6s is only with iOS 10.3.3 and iOS 11.4.1. Otherwise, the results are almost identical.
It is worth noting that the tests were conducted with the final stable versions of iOS 10, iOS 11, iOS 12 and iOS 13. And iOS 14 has just been released publicly. The company will still optimize the system by releasing updates for it. This should improve performance.
Overall, it’s clear that the iOS 14 update didn’t slow down older iPhones. This should please those who were afraid to install iOS 14 for this reason. It’s great that Apple maintains the performance of its devices despite the abundance of new features in the system.
