being that the metal Ali is only 64-bit, is the boost only for 64-bit platforms?
are you talking about Metal for Mac?
Metal was applied to the whole system's animations and processes (aka it's been expanded to work on more than just games)
But Metal is not for non-64 bit devices, so how would they get a performance boost?
"Since June 8, 2015, Metal is available for devices using the Apple A7, Apple A8, and Apple A8X"
Yes, the website states that metal is responsible for the performance improvements. But that doesn't mean that 32-bit devices won't see any improvements. They'll probably run a bit smoother and have less bugs, but not run faster.
I'm talking about non-64 bit devices...would those get a performance boost?
it says A7, A8, and A8X. all those are 64 bit
You understood my question. Thank you.
P.S: A5, A5X, A6, and A6X devices are still supported and only 32-bit.
That's not what he's saying.
We all know that the A7, A8, and A8X can get performance boosts thanks to Metal, which was something they heavily advertised. What about the iPhone 5/5C/4S and iPad 2/3/4/Mini, which don't have 64-bit support? He's asking how those models see performance increases, since they can't use Metal.
yep, but Metal is for A7, A8, and A8X
(Gives thumbs up)
Right...so the question is, for those devices that don't support Metal, but are supported by iOS 9, are there still visual performance improvements, and if so, where are they coming from (since they aren't coming from Metal).
i'm sure other optimizations they've made, as to what exactly i don't know. Metal isn't the only thing that will improve that.
some of it might be that their not subtracting features from those older devices now after optimizing the system for newer devices anymore but instead building a specific version for older hardware and then adding features
I really hope they get the performance fixes right, it doesn’t seem any faster on my iPhone 5. Hopefully, I'll see them in beta 2.
beta 1 always seems to be a POS lol
They will never fix the non-60 fps keyboard rotation animation in iOS will they………..
I hope they do!
Stop thinking there will be major performance updates in iOS 9
Apple is mainly focusing on newer devices as usual
Can't expect your 3 years old device to run faster and to get new features
Is that why they are specifically not even dropping any devices with this upgrade?
