Benchmarks show your iPhone might not be slowing down over time

This morning Apple released their latest iOS Beta software to those in the dev program.

Unicode actually released its list of emoji back in June, but Apple will debut its own versions in next week's developer and public beta previews of iOS 11.1. For developers, the version number is 11.1 (Beta 2) - which is what we're talking about here and now.

Furthermore, the recent update of the iOS 11 also brings a bunch of new emojis to your iOS device. New apps developed for the latest models might not run as smoothly on older devices. It's basing its conclusions on over 100000 benchmark results it's gathered via its 3D Mark app since 2016, covering 7 different iPhone models starting from the iPhone 5S till the iPhone 7 running iOS 9, iOS 10, and iOS 11. It attributed these declines to minor iOS updates and other factors. It then used that data to create performance comparison charts to determine performance drops, if any, in iOS 9, iOS 10, and iOS 11.


Still, there are reasons why people may feel the performance of their phone is affected after updating an existing phone with a new version of iOS.

While you might be fixated on iOS 11.1's new features you need to remember that this is a beta and betas are meant to catch issues before they appear in the final release. MacOS, watchOS, and tvOS will also get the new emoji around the same time, Emojipedia reports.

In less than a month, your iPhone is finally getting some new emoji. So, a lot of them are eagerly waiting for next version of Apple's iOS 11.0.3.


Apple has just recently replaced Bing with Google in iOS 11 in several places in the interface, so that more and more search traffic goes to Google. The new iOS 11.1 Beta 2 update is available for free and you can download it now by heading over to beta.apple.com website.

If you're sick and exhausted of running into problems with iOS updates, iOS 11 or otherwise, you have the power to do something about it. Download the iOS 11.1 beta, again it's free, and dig into the software. Before proceeding with the update, make sure the device's battery is charged up to avoid interruption. Therefore, it makes existing iOS devices ready for the next generation of smart devices around you. First of all, Microsoft has updated the app's UI to look great on the upcoming iPhone X. iPhone X is Apple's upcoming flagship smartphone which has an unique notch on the top of the display.
