iOS 11 Beta 3 Vs First Beta: Speed And Performance Comparison

Here’s iOS 11 beta 3 vs first beta side-by-side comparison in terms of speed and performance on compatible iPhone.

Apple’s iOS 11 is currently going through the beta process that all big releases of Apple’s operating systems have to endure, and it is a process that is designed to allow Apple to iron out as many bugs as possible while also optimizing for performance and such along the way.

We all know that early builds of iOS betas are best to be avoided, and not just because of the inevitable bugs. Apple’s betas are often less than optimized when it comes to performance, which can make for a frustrating time for those who install them anyway. With new betas arriving regularly, many hope that each release will bring with it much needed enhancements to responsiveness and such. With iOS 11 beta 3 now with us, just how much faster than iOS 11 beta 1 is it?

We are glad you asked, because our friends over at iAppleBytes on YouTube have answered that very question via a 12 minute video that gives us a great understanding of what users can expect performance wise from iOS 11 beta 3.

In order to carry out the tests and provide a good example of performance, iAppleBytes used an iPhone 5s as the testbed. The reasoning is that this is the oldest 64-bit device and thus providing a good benchmark for any improvements made as far as optimizations are concerned.

So with that all said and done, how did things pan out? Well, we suggest you watch the whole 12-minute video to get your own feel of how iOS 11 beta 3 compared with iOS 11 beta 1, but the gist is that yes, things have started to get a little slicker here and there. That being said, this beta is still considerably slower than iOS 10.3.2, the most recent shipping version of the iPhone and iPad’s software. With that in mind, it might still be wise to hang fire installing iOS 11 for a little longer. Maybe, just maybe wait for September.
