The Galaxy S8 might be packing a brand new Qualcomm processor, and it might outpace the iPhone 7 easily in benchmark tests. But when it comes to real-world performance, Apple’s 7-month-old smartphone proves it’s still king.
Particularly for those of us who have always used iPhones, it’s fascinating to be reminded of how far the technology has come in under a decade.
With that in mind, a recent video by YouTube channel EveryApplePro puts every iPhone model Apple has ever put out (with the exception, unfortunately, of the new iPhone SE) through a battery of tests to check everything from startup time to speaker output to, yes, even their heat signatures.
The iPad lineup has seen a ton of changes since Apple introduced its first tablet in 2010. Not only have the form factors evolved ever so slightly, but the internal components have pushed the product line from a cool reading/gaming device into a powerhouse machine that can replace your laptop.
To see just how much iPad has progressed, EverythingApplePro created a speed test using every iPad ever made. It’s no surprise that the iPad Pro comes out on top, but the original iPad off a shocker by beating some of its successors.
