A new YouTube video shared by Bennett Sorbo demonstrates the nominal operating performance gains iPhone users can expect to see when their device is no longer software throttled after battery replacement (via AppleInsider). The video compares the operating performance of an iPhone 6s before and after its battery is replaced.
“Completed in real time, the casual evaluation pits an iPhone with original hardware on the left against the same handset with a fresh battery on the right. Sorbo does not specify whether the battery replacement procedure was performed by Apple or a third party, but the results do reveal a marked improvement in performance, both in real world use and synthetic testing.”
The iPhone 6s is shown running through a number of various CPU-intensive tasks like opening apps, browsing the web, playing games and videos, and finally chewing through a Geekbench benchmark test. The device clocked single-core Geekbench score of 1437 points and a multi-core score of 2485 with its original battery, while with a new battery, it clocked scores of 2520 and 4412 respectively.
