Upgrade Your Iphone 5S,5C To IOS 10
When iOS 10 was unveiled by Apple at WWDC 2016, the list of devices included even the iPhone 5, launched in 2012. In today’s world of smartphones, a smartphone usually lasts in good working state for two years, before you would upgrade your smartphone to a new one. Apple users, meanwhile, have often been known to refresh their devices less frequently.
This brings us to two devices at hand – the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, launched in 2013. Featuring hardware that is three or four generations old now, the latest generation iOS may have expectedly slowed down operations on these old devices. Previously, when I had upgraded my old iPhone 4s to iOS 8, the device slowed down to a point where it became quite difficult to use it, even for regular tasks such as messaging and calls.
The iPhone 7’s abilities extend way beyond its predecessors. To lend perspective, the iPhone 5c is the weakest of the iPhones in question. The iPhone 5s packs in more than double the processing power and graphics power than the iPhone 5c, while the iPhone 7 is multiple times faster than both these devices. In fact, we’ve already come across the iPhone 7’s AnTuTu v6.2 benchmark score of 178,397. In our benchmark tests, the iPhone 5s scored 45,892, while the iPhone 5c scored 30,099.
With these statistics considered, we upgraded our iPhone 5s and 5c from iOS 9.3.5 to iOS 10.0.1, checking in tandem the effective performance output of these devices. Here’s how they fared:
