    iOS 12 is gonna speed up that old iPhone significantly if you can hold out that long. There aren’t a ton of new headline features but significant work was done around performance and speeding up older devices in particular. Everything back to the iPhone 5S will get iOS 12, so that covers back to 2013.

    Wait, will this be for iPads and IPods as well??
    If so, I can forget about buying a new tablet! My current one is having display problems and battery problems from time to time, and since it was so old and slow I was just gonna buy a new one, but if they are gonna do that, I’ll just get a new battery and display!
    Also, do you happen to know the cause of the lines across the display on the iPad mini 2?

    sure it has a flat response, and sure it has a lot of detail, and yes, it has good and clear lows. But is it enjoyable to listen to? Does it make you grin ear to ear? That’s what really matters.

    Yes it’s for iPads as well back to the iPad Mini 2. Basically if you’re running iOS 11 now you’ll be able to run iOS 12.

    No ideas on the lines on your iPad unfortunately.

    I think the display is failing, because when I take a screen shot while it is happening it isn’t there. If IOS 12 does speed it up I’ll get a new display and be done with it. If you wanna see what I’m talking about, you can probably google iPad lines on display, it seems to be a relatively common problem.

    I plan to hold out till at least the new iPhone hardware refresh is revealed later this year, to see what that may change.

    So iOS12 should be out in the wild by then.
