Do you upgrade your old phones when new iOS comes out?
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.
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.Do you upgrade your old phones when new iOS comes out?
In comes iOS 7iOS 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.
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 etcUmmmm, ok.
You know that the OS on older iPhones is upgradeable, right?
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.

U do know iOS 7 supports iohone 4 but it's the weakest platform. So iOS 8 will support 4s and uplol.
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.
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.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.
