Apple Unveils New Emojis For iPad And iPhone

Futuremark, a Finnish company that builds hardware performance benchmarks, collected more than 100,000 benchmarks from iPhone 5S, 6, 6S and 7 over the past year to see if there was a noticeable drop in performance after iOS upgrades.

The new update of iOS 11.1 features hundreds of new emoji characters which I'm sure will go down well with those who make use of them a lot.

If you decide to test iOS 11.1 on your iPhone or iPad you'll help Apple improve the final product. In doing so they often get more complex as new features and technologies are added, which can lead to the app performing worse over time as the smartphone has to do more when the app launches and during its general operation. One benchmarking firm tackled that argument, checking models as old as the iPhone 5S for performance in iOS 9, 10, and 11. But as the lecturer who inspired the research noted at the time, the spike only shows that people suddenly feel that their iPhone became slower, not that it did, nor that Apple actually engages in the practice. It's a common belief, but benchmarking firm Futuremark has spent the a year ago trying to debunk the theory. It runs a demanding series of tests, and then scores the GPU and CPU based on performance metrics. Read on to learn about what you might expect to find once iOS 11.1 is released. No sign that Apple is slowing down your iPhone there, so let's look at the CPU.

Wilder to defend heavyweight title against Stiverne Nov. 4
DEONTAY WILDER will defend his WBC heavyweight title with a rematch against Haitian-born Canadian Bermane Stiverne next month. It is the only fight in Wilder's pro career to go the distance and one where he suffered a broken right hand.


Processor performance was equally consistent leading Futuremark to conclude that "it is clear that iOS updates have not had a significant effect on performance".

Hurrah! Now you can really be yourself in emoji form with a new set of long-awaited gender-neutral emojis. Hopefully, these benchmark results will finally put to rest the allegation that Apple is slowing down your iPhone. Just make sure you are connected to a WiFi network in order to download the update while maintaining a power level of more than 50% on your device.
