Early bird: Apple iPhone 6 benchmarked running an iOS 9 test build

Early bird: Apple iPhone 6 benchmarked running an iOS 9 test build
The next version of Apple's mobile operating system, iOS 9, was already spotted making the rounds in Google Analytics, but now from the Rightware benchmark database comes an entry that puts an iPhone 6 running it.

That's right, iOS 9 is already in the testing phase on Apple's finest handset, it seems, as it should be, if Apple wants to out a developer preview in the beginning of the summer, as usual. As to what changes will iOS 9 bring, is not clear yet, but the performance of iPhone 6 with it is hardly different from an iPhone 6 with iOS 8, judging from the Basemark OS II test results. 

This, however, is likely quite a preliminary build of iOS 9, so we wouldn't be putting much thought in those eventual performance differences just yet.

I hope they don't screw up iOS 9 like they did with 8. Finally my iPad is stable after 8.1.3

Well lollipop had its fair share of issues as well.

Yep, both Lollipop (on my Nexus 5) and iOS 8 (on my iPad Mini 2) have been disappointing in terms of bugs

The point is that every time someone brings up Apple or iOS in an Android article, you ask how it's relevant. Please tell us all how your comment had any relevance to this article. No point, really. You're going to come up with your usual rhetorical b*llsh*t. Your hypocrisy knows no bounds.

Did he offend you?

Grow up. The internet is the wild west and we are all cowboys.

Believe me. Nothing anyone on here could say could ever offend me. Don't ask me to grow up. I'm more mature than you could ever be. Lastly, I have no idea what your last sentence even means.

How do you "copy" a software feature from a company that has been doing multi-window software for just a few years? The venue (mobile) is different, but Apple (and Microsoft) have been doing multi-windowed software since before Samsung was the Korean Foxconn.

It will have more than 200 new features and functions even if you will not be able to note them .the only thing really visible will be the number 9.
