iPhone 3G Speed Test: iOS 4.0 versus iOS 4.1
We remember that iOS 4.0 was so slow on our 3G. Late last week, Apple announced, among other things, that iOS 4.1 fixed performance on the iPhone 3G. We put their claim to the test. In the video above, the iPhone 3G battles itself in an epic speed test to find out if Apple's claims are true: Is iOS 4.1 faster than 4.0, or is it just a wash?
The video demonstrates the results:
• Messages: iOS 4.1 Wins (By a Little)
• Maps: iOS 4.1 Wins (By a Lot)
• Photos: iOS 4.1 Wins (Just Barely)
• Safari: iOS 4.1 Wins (Just Barely)
So,iOS 4.1 clearly outperformed iOS 4.0. It's still significantly slower performance than you'll get from a 3GS or iPhone 4, and we're still not sure it's a big enough improvement that 3G owners will want to ditch iOS 3.
