my ass. iPhone 5 iPhone 5s I would call that a tie. And yes I can see that 8 is like 0.00001s faster And yes I can see that 9 did still drop frames such as in the weather app on first swipe And yes I didn't include the 4s, which was quite a bit slower on 9, because f**k the 4s. Can we put these planned obsolescence threads to rest now, finally. It's lack of optimisation, time constraints, different priorities and generally how software works. Sorry conspiracy guys.
