Here’s iOS 12.4.7 battery life drain and performance test on video that you need to know about on iPhone and iPad devices.

Alongside iOS 13.5, Apple last week released iOS 12.4.7 for older devices. The update arrived with little fanfare and when Apple was also launching its coronavirus contact tracing API alongside Google, that’s no surprise. But if you’re using an old iPhone and are wondering whether you should update to iOS 12.4.7, we have the answer.

Or to be more accurate, iAppleBytes does. They took an iPhone 5s and iPhone 6 and put them through their paces with iOS 12.4.6 and iOS 12.4.7 installed. The idea was to see whether there were any improvements in terms of performance or battery life. Things could have gone down hill as well – a potential reason not to update on an older iPhone that’s already starting to show its age.

iOS 12.4.7 was released by Apple May 20th for older devices, the same day Apple released iOS 13.5 to all new devices. Not of lot of info from Apple as to what is new in this release, but we must assume that it contains security fixes, bug fixes etc. You can even still jailbreak iOS 12.4.7. So there are not realreason why you should not upgrade from any other version of iOS 12. I will run a comparison anyways to see if there are any signs of performance improvements, just the same. I will also include a side by side battery test video of the iPhone 6 as those devices have new batteries. Lets go !

You can check the full video out for yourselves, but the gist is that things are pretty even across the two versions of iOS 12. Considering iOS 12.4.7 probably has security and bug fixes in tow we’d definitely suggest you update. There’s no reason not to.
