Apple’s new iOS won’t slow your older iPhone

Remember all the trouble Apple found itself in last year, when it was discovered they were making older phones slower?

Well that appears to be a thing of the past!

This week they’ve unveiled iOS12, and it turns out – even your old iPhone 6 plus will run faster!

From Mashable:

“For iOS 12, we are doubling down on performance,” Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of software engineering, said during WWDC’s opening keynote. “We’re working top to bottom making improvements to make your device faster and more responsive. We’re focusing our efforts especially on the oldest devices.”

Federighi then went to demonstrate just how much faster they’ve been able to improve performance on older devices.

On an iPhone 6 Plus, which was released in 2014, he said apps could launch up to 40 percent faster, the keyboard could appear up to 50 percent faster, and you could slide to open the camera from the lock screen up to 70 percent faster.

Only time will tell, but will you hold onto your old device – or upgrade?
