3 Reasons Not to Install iOS 11.1 Beta & 5 Reasons You Should

These claims insist that Cupertino is doing this to push people to buy new models. And it's these changes that have many iPhone and iPad users considering an "upgrade" to the early version of iOS 11.1.

That's not the whole story, though. The iPhone 7 results for iOS 10 and iOS 11 also show little difference.

Does it feel like your old iPhone starts to slow down just as the new model arrives?

Futuremark's report is based on 100,000 benchmark results for seven iPhone models across iOS 9, iOS 10, and iOS 11.

While new batteries have greater longevity, through new electrode, electrolyte and controller technology, the battery in your four-year-old iPhone 5S is nearly certainly worse than when it was new.

On the other hand, only Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, and Pixel consumers are operating the new version of the OS. That means they have no chance to turn back to iOS 11 or iOS 11.0.1. There has been a small fall in CPU performance, but not enough to be noticeable, according to Futuremark. No sign that Apple is slowing down your iPhone there, so let's look at the CPU. It further said that it was clear that iOS updates do not have a significant effect on the performance of the device.

One of the biggest myths about iPhone performance has finally been busted.

Some people on various bastions of internet opinion like Reddit welcomed the return of iTunes with App Store access, but other notes that is a backwards step for iTunes and leaves it in a bloated and overly feature-heavy state. If they saw anything they liked, users could install that app on their iPhone through the box that was running iTunes.
