    I just downgraded my brother's iphone 4 to ios 4.3.5 and (settings app is an obsession of mine) I noticed that the settings app opens really fast, in ios 5 it opens slower and in ios 6 it opens almost as fast as ios 4. Now, is it just me or apple makes old iphones slower with these updates? like when I press the home button from camera app to homescreen, it lags a lot on ios 6 and ios 5.1.1 but on ios 5.0.1 and ios 4 it is pretty silky smooth.

    This is a PLEASE READ!! thread? :confused:

    New releases of any operating system, any app really, add features. New features means more code, and in many cases, more complicated code. More (complicated) code means a faster processor is needed to maintain performance. It doesn't 'makes old iphones slower '.

    Newer and larger firmware packages always places additional "loads" on older devices.

    TC25 and dhlizard hit the nail on the head.

    And your observation about opening the Settings app doesn't even really support the rest of your statement.

    Of course Apple makes sure new versions of iOS don't work properly on old devices. However will they make people upgrade otherwise?

    Honestly my iPhone 4 has gone to crap in terms of performance, it can barely function on iOS 6, I don't know why Apple released it for this phone at all. And don't get me started on the poor quality of the hardware.
