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.

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 iPhone 7 Plus Product Red Unboxing & Firstlook

Hi guys and welcome to 123 my IT’s video on Apple’s latest iPhone release the Apple iPhone 7 Plus Product Red.
the first thing that you will notice about Apples new iPhone is that it’s red and you can get this model in both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. These phones come with 2 storage options 128 gigabyte and a 256 gigabyte capacity. Apple very conveniently have released this new colour on the very same week that Samsung Galaxy S8 is due to be announced.

This iPhone is called the Product Red iPhone because it’s part of the Product Red cause which means that a portion of the profit from the sale of this iPhone goes to the Product Red cause. And you can find out more about this on the link below.

As you take the iPhone out of the box the first thing that you will notice is the back of the phone is red however the front of the phone is white. This has been a big disappointment for myself and also a lot of other iPhone fans, because a lot of people would have liked to have seen a black front on the iPhone with a red back or a fully red iPhone both on the front and back.

This aside the quality of the iPhone and the deepness and sharpness of the red his outstanding. Is it worth upgrading to well I’m not convinced unless however if you are in the market for a new iPhone then this would be an ideal selection.

This is the matte finish very similar to the other iPhones, however this is not like the Jet Black model which had a glossy finish. So it should be fairly durable.

One nice thing that Apple has done here is they have match the antenna lines with the bezel of the phone so the antenna lines are almost hidden.

So what do you think guys do you think the iPhone read is worth the upgrade? leave your comments in the comments field below and thanks for watching.

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.

iPhone 7 Plus

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.

iPhone 7 Plus 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.
