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

Basic steps first then harder steps later.

Make sure your device has a at least an hours charge. You iOS device battery needs at least 5% before it will turn on. Test your charger to make sure it not faulty. Do this by plugging it into another iOS device and check that its charging ok. The Adapter could be faulty the USB cable could be faulty as well.

Once you have checked your charger is fine and you have left your device charging for an hour the next step is to try putting your device in and out of download mode.
To do this press and hold down Home, Power and Volume down buttons.

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.

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.

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. Apple iPad Air 2 Unboxing & Review Or if you are looking for our Apple iPad Pro review check it out here. Apple iPad Pro Unboxing & Firstlook
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.

Apple iPad 6th Gen Gold

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 🙂

Forgotten Passcode on iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch

Forgotten Passcode on iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch

This video will show you how to remove your forgotten passcode on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. This is helpful if you have forgotten your passcode or don’t know what it is.

Have you ever forgotten passcode before on your iPad? or has a family member added a passcode and then forgotten the passcode?
My first advice or words of wisdom would be to try and remember the original passcode first. If you still can’t remember the passcode then this video will show you how to remove the passcode from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. The drawback to this is that you will lose any data on your device so it’s essential that you backup your device at all times. You can backup the device either through iTunes or iCloud.

Ok so the next step is to plug in your device into the computer that you synced the device with. Make sure this is the same computer that you sync the device with iTunes. If you get a passcode message this means you have plugged the device into the wrong computer. So try a different computer in your household.

If you have plugged the device into the correct computer in your iTunes there you should have a button which says restore iPad. To erase the iPad and get rid of the passcode you click the restore iPad button and you will see another window pop-up which says restore so go ahead and click restore. The iTunes will go ahead and download the iOS software which it will then restore on your iPad and this step will remove the passcode from your iPad. Make sure that your computer is connected to the internet because iTunes will download this software from apple.

Once the download has completed iTunes will extract the software to your iPad and then your iPad will restart and the passcode will be removed.

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.

What to do with your old broken iPad?

This video will show you what you can do to fix repair your old broken iPad.

Hi All,
I get allot of questions about old broken iPads so I thought I would put up a quick video about what you can do if anything with your older iPads. These steps will work with iPads, iPhones and iPods. This is helpful if you have got a new iPad and you want to retire your old iPad give it away or sell it and even recycle it for cash.

The first tip I mentioned was to make sure you have fully charged your iPad this is mainly for people that have faulty power cords or their laptop isn’t charging the device properly via the computer USB. Apple recently has recalled allot of these devices because they are faulty and I will go over how to work out if you cable is a faulty one or not. So its just something to try if you iPad or iOS device is not powering on properly.

old Broken iPad Power Cable

The next step is to clear out and personal data if you want to give away or sell the iPad. To do this its pretty easy go to Settings > General > Reset and then Erase all content and settings. This will put the device back into a factory default state simular to when you purchased the iPad.

The next step is to check your iOS version. Apple update the software on the iPad called firmware all the time and when they update this some apps may also need an update before they will work.
Now you can update the iOS by doing a OTA over the air update or you can do a full clean update by doing a DFU update. I wont go into this to much as I already have a video about how this is done and you can see it on the link below.
Phone DFU Mode – iPhone is disabled

Also you can find a complete list of iPad firmware here, iPad Firmware.

Lastly can you get your old broken iPad fixed under your warranty? and can you get a trade in voucher for your old working device? Well the answer is yes and you can check that on the links below.
These links are to the Apple.com US site. For people in other country’s just search for Warranty or recycle on your country’s Apple site.

Good luck!
