Retro Test : iPhone 4S iOS 5.0.1 vs 8.1.3. I see many comments that praise older iOS version for being ultra fast compared to iOS 8 on the iPhone 4S. So when i saw that one of my iOS devices still ran iOS 5.0.1, I thought I would put that claim to a small test.
In this test 2 iPhone 4S 32GB devices are tested, both devices had been reset and erased to default settings, test iCloud account loaded to both phones, and around 600+ songs synced to both devices.
Since Geekbench need iOS 7 and above, I have used PassMarks Performance test. Check out link to compare in detail in the conclusion part.
BTW it was pretty cool to handle the old iOS GUI again, felt very retro. :-)
Note : Please do not upgrade your device if you are satisfied with your current iOS, Remember there is no way back.
