Apple announced that old iPhones, iPads, or iPod touch will be getting a huge performance boost with the iOS 13 performance booster. This is great news for people who use older iPhone versions.

One of the reason iOS 13 is able to support old phones is because of a software adjustment that has pushed the phone up to a full throttle performance potential as needed. Apart from ramping up your phone's performance, it also helps to bring your iPhone back down very quickly in order to preserve your battery. The feature will also make apps launching and the use of keyboard a lot faster on newer phones.

Speed Test on Old iPhones: iOS 13 vs iOS 12

There's nothing like a good performance test to see just how good the iOS 13 performance is and we will be testing it against iOS 12. To see the speed test for yourself, you can watch a YouTube video on it.

  • Games launch a little more faster on iOS 13.
  • As a result of the faster CPU step-up, iOS 13 launches applications a lot faster than iOS 12.
