Benchmarks show your iPhone might not be slowing down over time

Apple Releases Version Of iTunes That Has An App Store Apple Releases iTunes 12.6.3 With App Store In Tow

Apple's updates to its iOS operating system do not cause its phones to slow down over time, according to new research that debunks claims the company intentionally slows down iPhones with software updates.

Starting with 2016, Futuremark collected more than 100,000 benchmark results for seven different iPhone models across three versions of iOS.

Instead, an older iPhone's performance is more likely impacted by new versions of iOS and the ensuing app updates, which are usually released in conjunction with a new iPhone.

With the new Apple iOS 11 update in September there came new enhancements for your iPhone and iPad and newly updated apps appearing almost every day.

15-day-old baby found dead in Newton County
They told the Newton County Sheriff's Office that she was fed about 5 a.m. that morning, but was gone when they woke up later. According to news sources, the parents of Caliyah McNabb called 911 Saturday morning when they noticed she was missing.

Futuremark also suggests that the perception that your older iPhone is slowing down is compacted by a "psychological effect", where "knowing that there is a new and improved model available" makes your older iPhone seem inferior.

The higher the bar, the better the performance, and on the basis of testing, GPU performance on the iPhone 5s was found to remain constant from iOS 9 to iOS 11 with only minor variations that Futuremark said "fall well within normal levels". For instance, GPU performance was up compared to the previous-generation versions of iOS for the iPhone 6 and 7. New apps developed for the latest models might not run as smoothly on older devices.

Based on the feedback from certain business partners who might still need to use iTunes to install apps, Apple has now released an older version of iTunes separately. Over the years, the app has added more and more features and has grown more processor-intensive.

Futuremark, in fact says that Apple is doing a good job in maintaining the performance of the older iPhones across the iOS versions by providing them with regular updates.
