iOS 9.3.1 VS 9.3.2 Beta 4 Speed Performance Test Results

It is always interesting to see how Apple improves its newest software platform especially on older iPhone models and here is short review about iOS 9.3.1 vs 9.3.2 beta 4 speed performance. Cupertino based company has pushed its fourth iOS 9.3.2 beta last week. While it is not the final beta for the next minor iOS 9.3.2 update but it has brought some bug fixes and it’s already showing some performance improvements over iOS 9.3.1 on older iPhones. Of course the best way to see how iOS 9.3.2 beta 4 speed performance improvements work on older iPhone models is to compare with the devices running the latest public iOS 9.3.1 release. 

iAppleBytes has posted on YouTube a series of videos demonstrated iOS 9.3.1 vs 9.3.2 beta 4 speed performance on different iDevices. They installed the latest beta on iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6s, then placed them alongside the same devices running iOS 9.3.1. Note that all of the iDevices were restored before the test using the same backup, so the test shows the real results.

The performance improvements are most notable on Apple’s older devices. In the iPhone 4s test below, for example, iOS 9.3.2 boots up slightly faster than iOS 9.3.1, and it’s faster at loading certain apps, such as Weather, Maps, and Reminders.

Talking about the speed performance of these two firmware versions on new iDevice then the difference aren’t quite so noticeable. In the iPhone 6s test below, iOS 9.3.1 performs just as well as the newer firmware, so users who have newer iPhones model probably won’t notice a change.

Of course, we should remember that iOS 9.3.2 is in the testing process. The first beta was pushed almost a month ago and it is expected that the final release of iOS 9.3.2 will be released very soon. So Apple still has time to make further improvements and optimizations before it rolls out it to public.
