iOS 9.3 beta 1 vs. iOS 9.2 [Speed test]

Apple’s new iOS 9.3 beta brings a number of nice new features to iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, including Night Shift mode, Touch ID lock for Notes, CarPlay improvements, and more. But is it any faster? Not according to these speed tests.

On an iPhone 6, the first iOS 9.3 beta — which was rolled out to developers earlier this week before being made available to public beta testers — is slower to boot up than the iOS 9.2 release that proceeds it. It’s also ever so slightly slower at loading certain apps, such as the App Store.

If you ignore the boot up times, then iOS 9.3 delivers almost exactly the same performance as iOS 9.2. It’s unclear why it takes longer to boot, then — but we must remember this is the first beta, so it’s likely we’ll see some performance improvements in upcoming releases.
