The testing begins on the iPhone 5, the oldest device. At first, it was believed that due to its age and the fact that it has an Apple A6 chipset and only 1GB of RAM, it would perform poorly. Surprisingly, it actually booted up a few seconds faster with 10.2, compared to the time it took with iOS 10.1.1.
