If I don't download too many apps and stay on iOS 6 will my iPhone 5 stay as fast?
Number of apps doesn't affect speed
I have 64Gb almost full with apps, it won't slow your phone down.
With the speed of this phone I am sure a iOS7 won't slow it down and maybe even iOS8 depending on what they add to both of them. I bought my grandmother an iPhone 4 when I purchased the 5 for my wife and I and my grandmothers phone runs perfectly fine on iOS6.
Not necessarily. The number of apps you have downloaded does not have an effect on the speed of your phone.
Whether the next iOS version will have an effect will be seen when it is released, at which point it is possible that it runs a little slower, but it's equally possible that it runs the same, or faster. Just depends on how it's coded.
If u want to stay fast, just stay on iOS 6 even apple release iOS 8.
But you'll be missing a lot of features that way.
With the dual core CPU's, I can't see any iOS release noticeably bogging down either the 4S or the 5 for their 2-3 major iOS updates.
Yes it is. Wait until iOS 7 to see the 4S becomes slow.
Didn't you basically ask the same thing here?
And mods think the rest of us are trolls
If you want to keep your iPhone fast you need to keep it on a diet rich in protein and vitamins.
Yup, pretty sure I got a temp ban for a reply on that thread....
Yep. Not only that, once I uninstalled iOS, it was SUPER fast
IOS and Android (sorry can't help but bring this comparison up) are completely different architectures in terms of programming and design, and as such an iPhone DOES not slow down regardless of what you do with it. Now, of course if your playing a high specced game that your processor cannot handle, your game won't run smooth but the operating system always will remain as so.
Android tends to get slower because of the different ways they handle things, such as multi tasking, they have - what android fans like to tout - 'true' multi tasking and as such programmes tend to stay in full operation even when you are not using them, this causes the phone to become slow and unresponsive and its why google has added a convenient "Close all" button just with a simple swipe. Its also the main reason why their processors are alot more powerful because its needed to run these operation systems smoothly and why iPhones are still using single and duel cores, android however have quad cores and soon hexacores.
That's not totally correct. Certain background apps continue to run while others are suspended.
