Has anyone noticed their Series 4 is faster with any internet requests that use Bluetooth 5 (when connected to a Bluetooth 5 iPhone)? Curious if there's a noticeable speed or even range bump there with Siri requests, sending messages, etc.

I’ve definitely noticed a considerable difference in speed when transferring songs and installing apps over the series 3.

When I restored my series 3 backup with quite a few apps onto the series 4 with the Xs max the app install speed on the series 4 was significantly faster.
Which the new phones have 5.0 as well - curious of some tests of older phones - I didn’t time mine - hard to tell if it was faster than Series 3 for this stuff.
