being that the metal Ali is only 64-bit, is the boost only for 64-bit platforms?
Metal was applied to the whole system's animations and processes (aka it's been expanded to work on more than just games)this isn't new to iOS 9. they added it in iOS 8.
are you talking about Metal for Mac?
You understood my question. Thank you.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.
That's not what he's saying.it says A7, A8, and A8X. all those are 64 bit
(Gives thumbs up)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.
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).yep, but Metal is for A7, A8, and A8X
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.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).
Is that why they are specifically not even dropping any devices with this upgrade?Guys
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
