One of the most interesting comparative clips from recent days, is one where it becomes obvious that the iPhone 2G with iOS 3 is faster than iOS iPhone 6 with iOS 8. Sounds crazy right?
We seen comparative tests between iDevice and Android for a long time, devices that were running different versions of their operating systems and we almost forgot about the performance gap that has created between a 4-5 years old iOS and the latest version.
Because you do not have to be an expert to realize that the latest versions of iOS insists more on transition effects than on agility, someone thought to create an internet video which you can find below. Through this you can see how, surprisingly, an iPhone 2G with iOS 3 installed is more agile than an iPhone 6 with iOS 8 installed. The time difference when swiping the screen is so large that it is obviously not related to mobile’s hardware performance, but with the philosophy that Apple applies for new versions of the system operating. Simply, on the old iOS 3, the response time is nonexistent, whereas for iOS 8, the difference is higher.
In other news, if there was no clip attached to these complaints, the whole phenomenon might seem absurd. It is sufficient, however, to unlock the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus and try to instant navigate the menu. The reality is that you can not because of the animations that are pulling you back.
Trying to change something, not just to complain, Van Hecke, the producer of the video, has already submitted a complaint to Apple on this issue, and we hope that the next version of iOS will not take that much time to open the Settings.
