iOS 4.2 to improve speed on the old iPhone 3G?
Still have your iPhone 3G hanging around? Then you’ll surely hate Steve Jobs for the iOS 4 that nearly killed your 3G. Not only did he left out some cool stuff from the 3G in iOS 4, but there’s also a serious performance hit that made quite some big hu-ha. That was slightly improved by the launch of iOS 4.1, but it seemed that now your iPhone 3G will be getting a ‘reborn’ with the iOS 4.2.
The folks at TiPb have tested the iOS 4.2 gold-master on an iPhone 3G and found that performance was noticeably improved across the board. Head on past the break to check out their results for yourself, and keep your fingers crossed that you’ll actually see a similar improvement when the official update finally hits your 3G.
