How does the iPhone 5s on iOS 12. The truth got better?

Many users expected Apple to focus on stability, improving performance, and fixing bugs in iOS 12.

Yesterday, at the presentation at WWDC, vice president of software Craig Federigi announced loudly that the company would seriously increase productivity in iOS 12.

Craig said that support for iOS 12 will receive the entire current line of Apple devices, including the iPhone 5s .

We tried to figure out whether he really can adequately work on the latest version of iOS?

Speed ​​test

To begin, we conducted a comparative test. We took iPhone 5s and iPhone 8 Plus and in turn opened a list of 14 different applications on smartphones : Calendar, Clock, Shazam, Gismeteo, Photo, Instagram, Safari, Youtube, Twitter, Navigator, VK, Camera, Music, Аftelight.

First, all applications started at startup, and then from the memory of smartphones. In the video, you can estimate the reaction rate of some popular applications.

The first round of the iPhone 5s finished in 1 minute 16 seconds, during the re-opening of the running applications, the smartphone took 1 minute 5 seconds. Alas, but in the RAM iPhone 5s does not hold anything.

It took 45 seconds for the “cold” launch of iPhone 8 Plus applications, and he coped with the task again in 31 seconds. Monster!


The difference is serious, but it is worth noting that the iPhone 5s was announced almost 5 (!) Years ago.

How does the iPhone 5S work on iOS 12 beta 1 compared to iOS 11.4?

Serious podlagivaniya and glitches characteristic of the first beta versions of new versions of iOS is not noticed.

Rate the smoothness of the smartphone on iOS 12 beta 1, as well as compare the speed of working with iOS 11.4 in a separate video.

For the first beta, this is a real revolution!

General impressions


The smartphone stopped stuttering where it used to have constant problems. For example, the opening of the camera occurs in an adequate 2-3 seconds maximum.

Responsiveness and speed increased . There is no twitching animation, everything works quite smoothly. For more comfort, I advise you to turn off the extra animation. Go to Settings – Basic – Universal Access, and 
turn on the Reduce Motion option.

Battery confidently holds charge! Despite the modest battery, instantaneous discharge to zero even on the beta version does not occur. For 4 hours of moderate work on the smartphone, the battery is discharged by 30 percent.

In AnTuTu new figure. In the synthetic test, the iPhone 5s smartphone on iOS 12 beta got 64968 points, which is almost 3 thousand more than the test results on previous versions of iOS.

The impressive result of programmers from Cupertino. “IPhone-5c”, at least in the coming year, it will be enough to work adequately with the latest iOS 12. Can I buy an old man in 2018? With such an acceleration of the operating system – yes.

Old Apple smartphones have got a new life. Bravo, Apple!
