In the early morning of May 14, Apple officially launched the official version of iOS 12.3. As the third major version of iOS12 update, Apple has brought a number of optimizations, and the fluency has improved a lot. The iPhone XR in the small series has improved the response speed after updating iOS 12.3, and the problem of black screen circulation has also been solved, which is really gratifying. Despite this, many people still dare not update, because everyone feels that the cost of the system is that the power consumption increases. In order to ensure that mobile phone life does not decline, users prefer to stick to the old system.

However, is the fluency of iOS 12.3 really exchanged for life? In response to this problem, the foreign media conducted some tests. The testers used the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s for testing, running iOS 12.2 and iOS 12.3, respectively, and running the built-in battery test function of Geekbench 4. The test results show that the power consumption of iOS12.3 is indeed higher than that of iOS12.2, but the difference is not big, only 1-2% of the gap, the impact on daily use is very small. And what you get is a smoother, more stable system experience, why not.

It is worth mentioning that iOS13 will be launched in June, during which Apple will launch iOS12.4 (which will be tested with iOS13). If there is no accident, iOS12.4 will be the last version of iOS12, and it will be the most stable and smoothest version. If you are not in a hurry to update iOS 12.3, or the old system is still hesitant to upgrade iOS12, may wish to observe iOS12.4 and make a decision.
