In case you are on-going the cycle of upgrading your old smartphone with whatever the the most recent one is every planting season, you may wish to stop. That is takeaway from a new comparison video toward the Everything Apple Pro YouTube channel.
Within a side-by-side-by-side showdown connecting the iPhone X (2017), iPhone XS (2018), and iPhone 11 Pro (2019), the beefy newcomer and also its shiny, new A13 Bionic processor is roughly comparable in performance – and oftentimes even comes out at the top! – into the 2018 model. The testing is comprised of clocking the amount of time that is required to open various apps and running benchmarks.
Don’t put far too much stock in the performance lead. Yes, the XS outpaces the 11 Pro for some spots, the lead is likely temporary. Apple only released the latest list of iPhones, and forthcoming iOS updates will bring optimized performance for all your new phones.
Like the video points out, though, the greater issue is RAM. Apple equipped the 11 Pro (and all accounts of the situation the 11) with 4GB of RAM, identical to the iPhone XS. The performance similarities would have more to do with memory limitations, especially because the testing focuses heavy on load times. All three of these devices remain to be top-of-the-line phones, naturally, but these tests highlight what exactly \”incremental updates\” really means with the annual smartphone refresh.
