Does iOS 12.4 slow down your old iPhone?

Own a vintage iPad or iPhone? Update now or face fallout from GPS bug
Changes to the way weeks are numbered by GPS receivers could cause problems for older iOS devices.

Those who use older iPhones tend to look at new iOS releases with a hint of suspicion. After all, installing a new iOS update can cause performance problems, and since updating is essentially a one-way journey, it can be problematic to install it on a gamble.

So, will iOS 12.4 slow down your iPhone?

In testing I’ve carried out, my answer is a conclusive “no.” Older iOS devices operate and run as they did under iOS 12.3.1.

However, the downside to this is that there’s no performance boost from installing the new update either, which means if your device felt old and sluggish under iOS 12.3.1, then iOS 12.4 isn’t going to make it any better. This is particularly true for the iPhone 5S and iPhone 6.

iAppleBytes carried out side-by-side testing of iOS 12.3.1 and iOS 12.4 across a range of devices, and this came to the same conclusion – iOS 12.4 isn’t a performance hog.

It also seems like iOS 12.4 is also kind to battery life, so there doesn’t seem to be any shocks for people after installing it.

So if you’ve not done so already, get it now.

I'm a 50 year old PLC programmer from Burnley, UK. I severed my time as an electrician in the baking industry and soon got involved with the up and coming technology of PLC's. Initially this was all based in the Uk but as the years went by I have gradually worked my way around the globe. At first it was mainly Mitsubishi with a bit of Modicon thrown in but these days the industry leaders seem to be the Allen Bradley range of PLC and HMI’s.
