Compare iOS 9 and iOS 8: Speed Test for 9.2 Beta and 8.4.1 Firmwares

Over 60 percent of iPhone users installed iOS 9 versions [here is a list of some useful iOS 9 tips and features], as Apple reports. Still at least 25 percent of people who are using the ‘fruit’ smartphone are still running previous iOS 8. Let’s compare iOS 9 and iOS 8 in a speed test performed for the most recent iOS 9.2 beta and the last iOS 8.4.1 version.

Isn’t it curious to see the results of iOS 9.2 vs 8.4.1 speed test before this operating system becomes officially released? The test was performed by iAppleBytes and it compares the most recent versions of iOS 8 and iOS 9 platforms that both support iPhone 6, 5s, 4s, 5, 5c and 6 Plus. Not all the models were put to the test. The company chose the older iPhone 4s, 5 and 5s since the iPhone 6 / 6 Plus were launched a year ago and they won’t be affected by iOS 9.2 update as much as previous gen devices.

iOS 9.2 vs iOS 8.4.1 Speed Test Compare

The iOS 9.2 speed test proves that Apple makes its system running just a big faster on older phones if compared to iOS 8.4.1 version. Still if the boot up gets faster some other things remain the same. For example, when you launch programs and switch between iOS applications you will notice no difference between the two firmwares.

If both versions truly offer identical speeds – users who are running iOS 9 might want to stay on this firmware and not downgrade to iOS 8.4.1 which is still possible! You can read how to update and downgrade to 8.4.1 from any iOS version on the web. Keep in mind that iOS 8.4.1 cannot be jailbroken just like iOS 9.1. iOS 9, 9.0.2, 9.0.1 and earlier iOS 8 versions are also jailbreakable with Pangu program.

A group of hackers found a way how to jailbreak 9.1 platform but their tool will not be released to public.
Apple will present iOS 9.2 upgrade sometime this fall. The company is testing it together with developers and public beta testers. You can also participate in Apple iOS public beta testing program if you are interested in peering inside the firmware versions that are not available officially yet.
