Apple Soc are the most optimised of all smartphone..
Some part of me thinks that intel delibrately made the hole, then offered to "patch" it, of course for a performance cut and of course, more inventive to upgrade.

-Its not apples fault arm processors have a vulnerability.
-iphone isnt the only affected device. All intel and Arm devices are affected(basically every consumer device on the planet)
-almost all, if not all, effected devices will take a performance hit
This update will propably kill Android phones If it does this for iPhones which always been more powerful.
Luckily for Android users and iOS users this 40% drop has nothing to do with Spectre patch. YouTube is full of videos with different iPhones giving same Geekbench score than before.

punmeisterone, 12 Jan 2018Which is EXACTLY what Apple wants you to do.Unless he buys an Android...
Now thingd are getting bad for Apple. And I don't like that.
Because Apple and Android have been pushing eachother to become better.
PapaPerez, 12 Jan 2018Give it a read again. It's pathetic from Apple to cause a reduction of 28+40% in performance t... moreThat's a whole other topic and it has been discussed in so many articles already. This article is about the Spectre fix which, according to GSMArena, makes iPhone 6 take a massive performance hit. That is simply is not true and they could easily have done some test on their own before posting this article based on single persons test.
If only Apple was an actual honest company and never slowed down their older iphones. Then even an iphone 5 would still be decently fast to this day. But no.

Did you guys verify this? Mine is still doing well after running geekbench 4. This applies to both my iphone 6 and iphone 7.
Just one more reason proving ios devices "don't need" hardware right?
And the worm bitten apple will lagg much more than usualy.
First used batteries then buggy IOS Fugly Notch and now Laggy Phones.
Welcome to the world of apple :-)

It is a great opportunity for than since no need for excuses about batteries.
