iOS 8.4.1 vs iOS 9: Which is Faster on Your iPhone?

Now that Apple released iOS 9 to users worldwide, many people are curious about how fast is this version of Apple’s mobile operating system. It’s no secret that system performance depends on the hardware, so if you’re using an iPhone 4s with iOS 9, it will be slightly slower than the iPhone 6 with iOS 9 on board.

9to5Mac reporters have recently shot and shared a good video showing how the system performance of iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 with iOS 8.4.1 is different from system performance of the same devices with iOS 9 installed. The reporters compared the boot time, application load speed, and used a benchmark to check the overall performance. In almost all cases, iOS 9 turned out to be slightly slower than iOS 8.4.1. The browsing and Wi-Fi performance are better, though.

What’s even more interesting about the latest update, is that it crashed many iOS devices. Most of the threads on Apple Support Communities forum these days have been somehow related with freezes, crashes and bugs found in iOS 9. Many users claim this version of iOS bricked their iPhones and iPads. This means it’d be better if you stay away from it, at least now.

Apple is said to be working on iOS 9.1 right now. Hopefully, it will fix the aforementioned issues.
