On the evening of 16 September, Apple released the new operating system iOS 9. And although the company claims that the update is aimed at fixing bugs and improving performance, to some users, it may make sense to wait for the first update and move on until “nine”.
One of the biggest advantages of the iOS platform over competitors is not only long term support for older devices, but updates are released simultaneously with their releases for newer vehicles. This approach allows the owners of even the newest models of iPhone, iPad and iPod touch to not feel neglected by the company, and the latter continues to sell the products of previous generations.
According to observers of the resource Ars Technica compare the performance of the iPad 2 on iOS and iOS 8.4.1 9 GM, in the last Assembly, the tablet runs a bit slower compared to the previous release.
According to the table on an iPad 2 with iOS 8.4.1 four of the six standard applications – Mail, Messages, Settings, Safari, Camera, and Calendar – starts faster than in iOS 9. For example, in iOS 8.4.1 Safari opens with 2,53, whereas on iOS 9 – 2,73 S. the same parameter Settings – 1,65 with and 1.73, and for Message – 1,39 c and 1.65, respectively. An improvement, albeit slight, noticeable only in apps Camera is 1.32 with against with 1,4 – and Calendar – of 1.53 and 1.55 p.
Now Apple is working on iOS update 9.0.1, and, as practice shows, the first updates for major releases aimed at “polishing” the main release. Perhaps to improve performance will help the optimization of the operating system.
