Like, really greatly. 50% of performance drain kind of greatly. Apple has recently released an iOS 11.2.2 update for iPhones. The update was supposed to protect the phones against a newly infamous Spectre vulnerability. Apple predicted that it will cause the phones’ performance to drop, but numbers estimated were no bigger than 2.5% drop. Well… one Melvin Mughal, a seemingly well-known tech developer, has calculated that the performance of his iPhone 6 dropped by roughly 40% after downloading the latest iOS 11.2.2 update, and there are people who report losing even more working power. On the other hand, the exact number of phones afflicted is unknown, plus some users – less than those hurt by the update – report that their phones are actually working faster now.
I will leave the decision of whether or not is there a cause to panic to you, dear readers.
