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.

iOS 12, Is it faster?

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:

Notification’s screen.
Battery usage.
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

Apple iPad 6th Gen 2018 with Apple Pencil

Apple iPad 6th Gen 2018 with Apple Pencil

In this video and article we take a look at the Apple iPad 6th Gen 2018 model which includes Apple pen support and upgraded CPU A10 fusion.

While the Apple pen doesn’t come with the iPad you can buy it for $99 USD. This is the first time the Apple Pencil has been included on the Apple iPad 6th Gen.

To pair the Apple pencil with the iPad its very easy. Simply remove the lid on the Apple Pencil and plug it into the lighting port on the bottom of the iPad. You should then see a message come up on the iPad telling you that the iPad is pairing with the Apple Pencil.

On the outside, the Apple iPad 6th Gen is exactly the same as the Apple iPad 5th Gen so nothing really new to see here. If you want to see our video on the old 5th gen iPad you can watch that here.

However the Gold colour iPad has been replaced with a kind of pinkish gold now. Its still called gold but the new gold is a warmer colour now.

The Pencil is great but it doesn’t work so well as a general navigation tool. So to get the most out of the Pen you will need to find applications that support it. In the video I use the Apple notes application and it works quite well.
The battery is a 32.4 watt hour battery and according to Apple you should get around 10 hours of battery life.
Using the iPad is still the same as pervious versions. Swiping down brings you to the search menu. Swiping down from the top of the iPad will give you your notification’s menu. Swiping across will give you your widgets menu. Swipe up from the bottom will give you your recent apps menu along with the control centre.

I hope this video helps 🙂

The Apple iPhone 7 plus and the iPhone 7 comes in two different sizes, the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus and basically they have the dimensions as the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 6S plus. However the iPhone 7 is still worthy of an upgrade as it comes with the host of new features such as waterproofing along with dual cameras on the front and back. The iPhone 7 has a IP76 certification which means the phone is actually waterproof then you can actually put it into a 1 metre of water for up to 30 minutes in terms of screen size the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are exactly the same as the iPhone 6S and 6S plus so no real changes there.

Another big change with the iPhone 7 over the predecessor iPhone 6S is the integration of these antenna lines around the phone so the good thing about getting either the black iPhone 7 models if you can’t really notice the antenna line that goes around the iPhone and apple have been able to integrate the antenna line a lot better than they did with previous models.

If we take a look at the bottom of the phone here it looks like we have stereo speakers but in actual fact one of the lines he is a speaker and the other is a microphone line Apple wanted to make it look very nice by having the same amount of lines on both sides. Another thing to mention here is the removal of the headphone audio jack so now we just have one lightning USB port on the bottom.

On the top of the phone beside the earpiece that you can see we now have a 7 megapixel FaceTime HD camera with F 2.2 aperture and this camera can record at 1080p HD video.

iPhone 7 plus top

On the back of the iPhone 7 we’ve got a 12 megapixel camera with optical stabilization and F 1.8 aperture now beside the main camera sensor with a second sensor which is a 12 megapixel sensor just like the other one however it’s got out 2.8 aperture which allows you to zoom in on images now beside the dual cameras we have a microphone plus we have a quad LED flash which is 50% brighter and can shoot 50% further.

iPhone 7 Plus back

So would I recommend the iPhone 7? I would say yes for sure I’m not really an iPhone fan but just the general quality of the build of the phone, it’s really nice, the phone fits really well in the hand the rounded edges feel really nice and comfortable it doesn’t feel like it’s going to slip out of your hand when you’re using it.

Apple have done a really good job getting the screen to attach to the bezel there. If I had to say anything negative about it is probably just the length of time that it took me to get this this actual model so the iPhone 7 Plus so I hope I pre-ordered back in September and it’s only just arrived now and it’s now December so it took a long time to get here and part of the delay for these iPhones here in Australia was that these Black covers a really hard to manufacture and apparently they had something like a 40% failure rate with the quality of these black covers on the iPhone 7 and that’s why I’d actually take such a long time to work to get one of these models here in Australia.
