Apple Updates will they slow down your iPad?

In this video we run will find out if Apple updates can slow down your iOS device.

Hi All
Some people say that after they run Apple Updates on their iOS device so iPad, iPhone or iPod that their device slows down allot. I had an old iPad 2 laying around the house that was running a pretty old version of iOS, iOS 7. So I thought before I upgrade my old iPad 2 to the current version of iOS 9.2.1 at the time of writing this article. I thought I would run GeekBench which is a benchmark app used for testing the performance of hardware.

Apple Updates - iOS 7

So running iOS 7 I performed the following tests.
* Running GeekBench 3 times with device running on battery
* Running GeekBench 3 times with device plugged into power

The device operated pretty much the same with the cable plugged in or out. Here are the results.
iOS 7.1.2 Results
On Battery Single Core Score
264 Multi Core Score – 500
264 Multi Core Score – 499
264 Multi Core Score – 498

Plugged in Single Core Score
265 Multi Core Score – 499
264 Multi Core Score – 499
264 Multi Core Score – 499

iOS 9.2.1 Results
On Battery Single Core Score
262 Multi Core Score – 497
262 Multi Core Score – 496
262 Multi Core Score – 497

Plugged in Single Core Score
262 Multi Core Score – 496
262 Multi Core Score – 497
263 Multi Core Score – 497

So after looking at the results do Apple updates slow down the performance of your iOS device and it seems the answer to this question is YES! But in this instance not enough that I believe that you would notice.

Apple Recall – AC Wall Plug Adapter

This video will show you how to identify an affected Apple AC Wall plug adapter. These adapters are being recalled by Apple because of a design fault where by the affected plug could shock some users.

This is a massive design fault by Apple a company that prides itself on great design. The adapter that comes with all iOS and Mac computers which allows you to change the power cord for a longer power cord or to change adapter type for different country’s.
If the plug gets damaged or breaks over time there is a chance that that you could take an electric shock.
Most people would assume when a plug is broken in this way that you would throw the plug out and by a new one, however improved design may actually stop being shocked even with a faulty plug.
And thus the Apple Recall has started.

So how do you tell If you have an Apple recall plug or not? Well here is Apples explanation below which I find that I had two read it a few times to make sense of it. 🙂

Identifying your wall plug adapter
Compare your adapter to the images below. An affected wall plug adapter has 4 or 5 characters or no characters on the inside slot where it attaches to an Apple power adapter. Redesigned adapters have a 3-letter regional code in the slot (EUR, KOR, AUS, ARG or BRA).

Apple Recall

So can we have that in plain English please? Basically in these countrys Europe, Korea, Australia, Argentina and Brazil, If you check your AC adapter and it has 4 or 5 numbers on it or is blank then you can return it to an Apple store for an exchange.

Pretty straight forward? I don’t know why they didn’t just say that on their webpage.

Cheers
