iOS 13.1.2 Battery Life Drain And Speed Vs iOS 13.1.1 Comparison [Video]
Here’s iOS 13.1.2 battery life drain and speed Vs iOS 13.1.1 comparison for iPhone and iPad users on video.
With iOS 13.1.2 now filtering through as a public-facing update for compatible devices, it is worth taking a look at an early overview of not only how Apple’s latest release performs from a speed perspective but also at the efficiencies of its underlying battery handling.
Where “speed’ is concerned, we are talking about the type of speed that affects users on a daily basis. These are things like the time that it takes to launch apps and actually have them in a usable position as well as how the system responds to scrolling through content in apps like Safari and Mail, or even in third-party apps which have already been launched.
Apps like games are also a concern due to the graphics intensive nature of certain titles so it’s always good to see how new versions of iOS handle invoking those titles and how long it takes to leave users in a position whereby they can actually interact with them.
As expected, given that this is a minor point update, Apple really hasn’t done any damage with iOS 13.1.2 in relation to the above. Conversely, when compared to iOS 13.1.1, it also hasn’t made any real notable improvements, either. The side-by-side comparisons show that apps launch pretty much neck-and-neck and being able to fluidly scroll through content is pretty much identical in both iOS 13.1.1 and iOS 13.1.2. So, the good news on that front is that you are running iOS 13.1.1 and have been procrastinating about the iOS 13.1.2 jump, the speed shouldn’t be an issue. Providing you are happy with iOS 13.1.1 and aren’t expecting improvements, of course.
So, what about the battery life of iOS 13.1.2? For this test, iPhone SE, iPhone 6s, iPhone 7, iPhone 8, and iPhone XR were all put side-by-side and ran through the Geekbench battery test which is designed to deplete the battery and see how long it takes. iPhone SE was able to stay up and running on iOS 13.1.2 for 3-hours and 7-minutes under these conditions. Apple’s iPhone XR lasted for 6-hours and 33-minutes, with iPhone 6s, iPhone 7, and iPhone 8 all sitting around the 3-hour 20-minutes-ish mark. In some instances, iOS 13.1.2 is marginally more performant in these areas. In others, iOS 13.1.1 is marginally better. The tolerance is, however, extremely small and not enough to make any real difference.
