“sacrificing performance”? Foreign media test results exposed
Apple officially released a new version of iOS 17.0.3 again at 5 a.m. to fix the “overheating issue” that many people have complained about. Although users have a general feeling for the cooling effect of iOS 17.0.3 after the software update, they fear that the update will compromise the performance of the chip “A17 Pro”. For this, outside media conducted tests on iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max that were updated before and after system updates, and found that the updated phone performed better.
Apple released a statement earlier today pointing out that the iPhone 15 series is overheating, aside from the initial large amount of data transfer and the incompatibility of some APPS with the system, the main reason is that the error came from the iOS system itself, and Apple also stressed that iOS 17.0.3 can fix this vulnerability and improve overheating issues. As soon as the system was launched, some users shared their findings on the mobile01 forum: “A simple pressure test for 1 hour, the temperature reached a maximum of 42 degrees last Monday, and today the maximum was only 37.1 degrees,” which felt that the temperature was really cool after the software update.
Despite the problem of overheating, many phone repairers have speculated that Apple has continued to try to reduce the weight of the phone in recent years, perhaps sacrificing the cooled media or space. Although Apple has not responded to this, the rumor has also led users to worry that Apple is sacrificing the chip “A17 Pro” Performance that allows the phone to cool down successfully.
For this, the foreign media “9to5mac” uses “Geekbench 5” to benchmark tests (Geekbench 5 is a software for measuring device CPU performance, which simulates the maximum stress a system can withstand when running programs), contrast the differences between the iPhone 15 Pro Max update to iOS 17.0.3, and whether performance is adversely affected.
9to5mac first tested phones with iOS 17.0.1 and iOS 17.0.2 in Geekbench 5.
The results were a single-core score of 2914 and a multicore score of 7199; and after updating the experimental phone to iOS 17.0.3 and cooling for 2 hours, the test results were a single-core score of 2941 and a multi-core score of 7523. The results of the experiment showed that the system update did not adversely affect the performance of the phone, even getting better results in the sprint test, but there are also comments from users that Geekbench 5 is only a short-term benchmark test, which still needs time to be observed for the subsequent evaluation of iOS 17.0.3.
