We just saw how incredibly far the iPhone’s display has come in seven short years. But if you think that’s impressive, check out how far the actual speed of the iPhone has come from the iPhone 2G to iPhone 6 Plus.

YouTube channel EverythingApplePro has posted a video showing a speed comparison of every iPhone ever made: the iPhone 2G, 3G, 3GS, 4, 4S, 5, 5c, 5s, 6 and 6 Plus.

They run each iPhone through the gamut of tests, from power-up to app launching. And surprisingly, the fastest iPhone is still the original one released back in 2007. Amazing, huh?

Psych! Obviously, we’re kidding: The iPhone 6’s A8 SoC beats the pants off every iPhone chip that came before it. But it’s still amazing to see just how much Apple has shredded Moore’s law over the last seven years with their work on the iPhone.
