Apple recently rolled out its latest iteration of iOS firmware aka iOS 10.3 with a bunch of new features including tweaked system animations and new Apple File System, which have allegedly improved the overall device performance and speed. It is now ascertained that the boot and load times have just got faster on all iPhones from iPhone 5 to the iPhone 6s which are running iOS 10.3, according to the recent speed tests conducted by popular YouTuber iAppleBytes.
It is widely believed that the older iPhones have benefitted most out of the tweaked animations and File System features as perceived in the latest speed test results portrayed in the following YouTube videos:
The shorter system animations have also purportedly reduced the app load times for all iPhones running iOS 10.3 as perceived in the improved overall system performance and slick interface. Quite surprisingly, it is being reported that there was no noticeable performance improvement in the latest benchmark results for all iPhones running iOS 10.3.
Users must note that their iPhone or iPad could take longer times to boot after updating to iOS 10.3, as the device needs to convert the older file system into Apple File System (AFS) during the first boot soon after the update. Consequently, the subsequent boots should get faster than before, owing to better optimised file-accessing system and quicker app load times.
