Interesting.

I guess the patch does different things to different phones, for whatever reason.

Who knows if he just used one with a good and one with a bad battery for promo

I've updated to 11.2.2 and run geekbench 4, single core 1551 multi core 2659.
Before update single core 1548, multicore 2657. battery still the original.

Anonymous, 12 Jan 2018You guys weren't kidding when you said "massive". Wow.My thoughts exactly
And wait if the Iphone 6 has a degraded battery and its performance has been throttled by the software would this update stack and make that 40% increase to around 60 ? Since if i remember correctly the degraded battery caused i think 20% reduction in performance.....
If thats what happening holy......... i dont even wanna make the apple joke here cause it WILL happen to otherphones too.....
