Do you upgrade your old phones when new iOS comes out?
I plan to sell 5S, so really undecided.. But probably will to get a feel before my 6+ arrives.
Pretty hard too when I sold my 5 two weeks ago
But I will keep my jailbroken iPad Air on ios 7 until a jailbreak is out for ios 8
will stay with 7 til jailbreak is out for 8
Going to iOS 8 for Continuity.
When I had the 5 I kept it on iOS 6.4.4. Nostalgic reasons I guess.
Of course I do. Why wouldn't i?
Cuz that's what the new iphone is for.. It already has iOS 8
I'm planning on keeping my iPhone 5 for another year. Given how iPhones struggle with second iOS upgrade post shipment, I plan on not upgrading to ios 8 to maintain performance.
Upgrading .... new one won't arrive until Oct 1-6, so I'm going upgrade to iOS 8 along with my iPad.
iOS 4.1 is the most stable OS on iPhone to date and I refuse to upgrade to any sub-par operating system that came after it.
You know that the OS on older iPhones is upgradeable, right?
I do not plan to upgrade my iPhone 5 to iOS 8.
It's running great on my iPhone 5. I get the occasional hiccup that wasn't present with iOS 7 but it's running just as well for the most part. I wouldn't be able to tell the difference if I didn't know it was updated.
After what iOS7 did to the battery life on my i5, and after seeing how slooooow it made my father's i4, I'll never put a whole new version of iOS on an iPhone again. Once bitten, twice shy.
I kept my iPhone 4 on iOS 5.x for as long as I could before having to upgrade to 7.x. I'll be upgrading it to 8 on day-1.... it is currently a laggy stuttering mess with 7 and I can't imagine it being any worse with 8.
In comes iOS 7
Lmao ok... I just like having old iPhones match it's release iOS version... Ie iohone 4s with iOS 5, iphone 5 with iOS 6, iPhone 5s with iOS 7 etc
The A8 CPU is only up to 25% faster and GPU up to 50% faster than A7. Comparatively speaking, this isn't that big of a jump from the A6 compared to previous generational jumps (iirc, A4 -> A6 and A5 -> A7 were up to 4x speed bump in terms of CPU and GPU). It stands to reason Apple wouldn't make iOS 8 significantly harder on resources compared to iOS 7.
Almost everyone on this site says how perfect and fluid 7 is. I hate it. iOS 6.1.2 JB was silky smooth and fast on my iP5. 8 better fix it. I'm getting the iP6, but 7 has issues on the 5S, so we'll see I guess.
I've often said iOS 7 was the best marketing campaign Android has ever had.
Yeah, I know what you mean. Ever since DOS 4.11, it's been downhill from there...
U do know iOS 7 supports iohone 4 but it's the weakest platform. So iOS 8 will support 4s and up
I'll update as soon as I can j/b it and my preferred apps are updated.
That is part of how they get you to buy a new phone. They keep making the new operating systems take just enough resources to make your old, once fast, devices seem old and slow.
