iOS 12, Is it faster? Benchmark & Features
Hi guys Matt from 123myit here and in this video I will go over Apples iOS 12, Is it faster? we will find out.
Ok Guys I heard that Apple latest iOS 12 update should improve device performance rather than slow it down. So I thought I would give this upgrade a shot and test it on my older iPhone 5s and see if I notice any better performance along with checking out the new iOS 12 features.
Before upgrading I ran the Benchmark and you can see the result below with iOS 11.2.
The results from iOS 11.2 were as follows:
Single core score, 1261
Multi cord score, 2157
To upgrade your iPhones iOS to 12 you can do this by going into Settings > Software update.
And you will read in the update information it states iOS 12 brings performance improvements and exciting new features.
Below is a picture of the Benchmark result after the upgrade to iOS 12. As you can see the Benchmark does confirm Apples claims to being faster.
The results from iOS 12 were as follows:
Single core score, 1308
Multi cord score, 2169
For me personally I think this is a welcomed change from Apple who was always the company seen to slow down the older devices to force customers to upgrade their iOS device. Right now this means you might get a little bit more use out of older devices which is fantastic news, however lets see what happens when Apple releases iOS 13. Will they delivery the same positive boost?
Other features that have been added to iOS 12:
Measurement screen ar kit leveler tool
New animal emojis koala and t-rex
Create your own emojis
Screen time how you are using iOS device
Limits on apps
Downtime app limits
Content and privacy restrictions

Thanks for the write up.I installed iOS 12 but would like to downgrade to 11 again. Is this possible now, are there any signed firmware available? Tried a few versions but get 3194 or 3600 error with iTunes on 2 different PCs.
Not really no. Once you have upgraded the software doesn’t allow you to go back! Is there some issue with the upgrade?
