How does iOS 12 Beta 1 perform on older devices?
Yeseterday, Craig Federighi remarked that iOS 12 was Apple’s fastest operating system to date and for all the right reasons.
According to testers, iOS 12 Beta 1 is by far the smoothest developer beta ever released by Apple.
Surprisingly, bugs and glitches that are inherent to developer betas simply don’t exist in this update.
Here’s what you can expect once you move to iOS 12.
- Increased performance – Older devices are now faster with snappier animations and an overall responsive feel. All applications launch almost instantly as compared to iOS 11 that takes around 2-3 seconds to launch an app.
- No hangs or freezes – Your iPhone or iPad will no longer crumble under pressure. You can easily use a lot of CPU-intensive apps simultaneously thanks to better resource management.
- Better battery life – Battery life experiences a significant boost. If you are a medium to heavy user, you can use your device for up to 6 hours and above.
As the first reports of iOS 12’s performance emerge, users have begun upgrading their devices from iOS 11.4 to iOS 12.
