Since Apple launched its ninth version of mobile software operating system to pubic it has passed already two months and now it is interesting to compare latest releases of iOS 9.2 beta 2 vs 9.1 performance on older iPhones models.
9.1firmware version was launched couple of weeks ago, bringing with it more than 150 new emoji characters, bug fixes and performance improvements for Live Photos. As for iOS 9.2 then currently it is in beta testing for both developers and public testers. Both versions of the beta are the same, with iOS 9.2 beta 2 currently in testing.
Even though this is a beta release, there are users who are interested in what enhancements latest build brings to the table, and if this release’s initial impressions are anything to go by, there isn’t a lot that’s new. As Apple didn't brings any noticeable changing in features, attention turns to performance. Is iOS 9.2 will be ultra high-speed when compared to other versions of Apple’s iOS?
So let's find out it in iOS 9.2 beta 2 vs 9.1 comparison.
A lot of users have been complaining about poor performance of their iDevice after upgrading to iOS 9.1. The issues include faster battery draining, slower speed and others. However, most of the people who are complaining about iOS 9.1 are actually using it on their iPhone 5 or iPhone 4s. So iAppleBytes posted a series of YouTube videos. They compare iOS 9.2 in its current beta form against the latest public version, iOS 9.1. In their tests on older Apple models such as the iPhone 4s and iPhone 5, the difference in speed between the two releases is noticeable, with iOS 9.2 proving quite a bit quicker than 9.1.
You will notice the difference in speed that will start to reduce with newer iPhones, though, with even the iPhone 5s proving to narrow the margin. We would imagine that iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s users wouldn’t notice much of a difference, if at all.
As you can see from the iOS 9.2 beta 2 vs 9.1 performance comparison videos Apple’s quest to improve performance on older devices should not be overlooked, especially with ageing Android devices rarely getting the latest software at all. So if you have one of Apple’s older smartphones, then iOS 9.2 could be good for you, and it shouldn’t be too far off an official release either.
