With a lot of recent criticism going against Apple’s way with regards to the company slowing down older devices to offer better battery life, Apple is taking a U-turn and doing the exact opposite with iOS 12. The new software update announced at WWDC 2018 is said to “double down” on performance even on older devices like the iPad 2013 and the iPhone 5S.
Some of the native apps can launch up to twice as fast with the new update. Recently, many users raised concerns when it was revealed that Apple hardware gets bottlenecked with each update to cope up with aging batteries.
Apple claims that some of the apps can launch up to twice as fast and offer much better performance than ever before. With the tight software and hardware integration the tech giant is capable of, the new iOS 12 can allow its silicon to ramp up clock speeds to power through resource-heavy actions. The CPUs will also slow down quickly once all heavy resource actions are complete to preserve battery life. The update will be available for all iOS 11 users in fall 2018.
