iOS 12 surprisingly breathes new life into my iPhone 5S

iOS 12 made my 5-year-old iPhone 5S faster.

I absolutely love the blocky, petite iPhone 5S. Second to the discontinued 4-inch iPhone SE, the 5S is one of the Last truly small smartphones . But Apple giveth, and Apple taketh away. Til tross for diskontinuering av iPhone 5S / SE formfaktor, gav selskabet iPhone 5S-brugere en glorious gift: iOS 12.

In the past, if you had an old iPhone, updating to the latest operating system was a bit of a gamble. Software bugs might pop up or performance might slow down. But iOS 12 does the opposite. It's not a glitzy feature-packed update. Instead, it does a lot of behind-the-scene housekeeping that actually makes the iPhone 5S faster. It's a welcome update and I definitely recommend downloading it.

iPhone 5S with iOS 12 is fixed

In 2013, the iPhone 5S launched with the A7 chip, the first 64-bit processor in any smartphone. Though it's 5 years old, that same processor allows the phone to run Apple's newest OS.

Even when iOS 12 was still in beta, we noticed improvements in speed especially when it came to opening apps like Safari and Instagram. For example, if I wrote an iMessage in iOS 11, the keyboard took its time to appear. But in iOS 12, it takes about half a second less. De meeste van deze snelheidverbeteringen zijn fracties of een seconde. But like Richard Pryor's penny-shaving scheme in Superman 3, those fractions add up.

I should note that I did not see any big improvements across all apps. Facebook, Maps and Weather showed little to no noticeable speed boosts. But unlike previous major iOS updates, the iPhone 5S never felt bogged down.

Here are actions where I observed speed improvements when running iOS 12:

Get new features for your iPhone 5S

There are a bunch of new features in iOS 12 available for younger iPhones, but some are left off the 5S. You will not find Animoji Memoji AR app support the Measure app or Message photo filters.

However, I did get pretty much everything else including new Do not Disturb Options in Control Center and Screen Time to view how much I used my phone and apps. Here are a few other notable additions to the iPhone 5S:

Siri Shortcuts

Shortcuts allow Siri to complete complex tasks with a single command. You can build your own or use Shortcuts someone else created . My favorite is one for converting videos to GIFs.

Notification grouping

It's not the sexiest feature, but grouping notifications by:

It's not the sexiest feature, but grouping notifications by app is een enorme stap naar meer uit dat 4-inch scherm. And there is something satisfying about dismissing a bunch of notifications with a single swipe from the lock screen.

Group FaceTime Calls

The good news is you can now talk to 32 of your iPhone-owning friends through FaceTime at once. Den nedside er at iPhone 5S kun støtter lydgruppe FaceTime-samtaler. I tried Group FaceTime call with 28 people and it worked, though it was chaotic with that many people talking.

Customize Control Center

I like being able to customize what's in the Control Center Panel. I added buttons for screen recording, QR scans, the magnifier and Apple Wallet.

New battery graphs

No matter how good this software upgrade is, there's no getting around the fact that I'm using a phone with a 5 -year-old battery. So I welcome any and all information I can get about what's draining it. Under the battery menu in Settings, there is a graph showing your phone's battery level since the last charge. Another graph shows off activity.

 iPhone 5S

The iPhone 5S packs a headphone jack, home button and TouchID, all of which you will not find on the new iPhone XS. But both the 5S and XS run iOS 12.

Consider this before upgrading

Despite my overwhelmingly positive time with iOS 12 on my iPhone 5S, there are a few things to be wary about before you upgrade.

Whether it's via iCloud or just though iTunes, be sure to backup your data. Forhåpentligvis har du allerede sikkerhedskopiering af telefonen, men i tilfælde af at det har været et stykke tid, skal du beskytte dine oplysninger før du går til iOS 12.

Next, check your storage. Your phone needs roughly 2GB of space to install iOS 12. To do this, go to Settings> General> Storage & iCloud Usage . Der kan du se hvor mye lagring din telefon har, og hva som bruker det. .

Last, despite iOS 12, speeding up things on your phone, it does take time to download and install. Jeg anbefaler å starte processen før du går til sengs, eller når du gjør noe annet som vask eller rengjøring av huset. You can also load iOS 12 on your phone via iTunes which is much faster.

Once you clear all these hurdles and get iOS 12 on your phone, enjoy your new-ith tiny phone that Apple managed to keep off after so many years .
