Since the invention of Apple’s mobile device operating system, Apple’s iOS development engineers have had their focus fixed on making iOS devices do more, rather than improving on the efficiency and quality of what is done. However, with the invention of iOS 12, Apple is approaching development from the angle of speed and performance rather than bringing more features to iOS.
Therefore, if Apple claims that iOS 12 should not be judged based on features but on performance, then let’s compare it with iOS 11 to see how well it will perform.
