PLEASE stop pushing this BS. Please. By now most people should know the truth behind this - they lowered peak-performance only in devices where battery deterioration caused devices to shut down at peak power-draw. In order to prevent unexpected shutdowns from happening. It was a move to improve people’s experiences on older devices. Yes, they should have been transparent about what they were doing, but the move itself was the right one. The introduction of an option to turn off the performance throttling in newer versions of iOS makes this a complete non issue. And devices with batteries within them that provide all the necessary juice at peak power-draw remain unaffected.

My GS9 is one year old and I'm a heavy user, I play high end games most of the time and even have installed Antivirus like the ESET premium along with clean master and security master, those apps are heavy on RAM and my s9 only has 4gb RAM and most of the time I only get around 855-1.2GB Free RAM and until now no LAGS at all.

Did you use the Time Stone or the Quantum Realm machine to recycle that old comment from 2014?

That's a lie! You know it and I know it. iPhone's do lag, they most certainly crash. In fact iOS still crashes more apps than even Windows and Android combined. Security loopholes? How do you think jailbreaks work? IOS was the only platform where a single symbol crashed the whole application. Come on dude. We all know the facts. You don't have to lie!!!!

Android relies on too many apps customization. Apple brings speed to older ios while android brings nothing so that people will buy more cheap junk androids. Quality over specs.

That's what android is for customization and it is heavily built for powerusers unlike Iphones which are just casual and enough to do simple task to get thru the day which is clearly unjustify for the price its asking.

Half of the things listed seemed to be app-related updates, and less OS (ie: Books or iMessage upgrades vs iOS upgrades). I'm imagining I/O tomorrow will reveal similar results for Android. Hardware slowed down a while ago. Software has started slowing down. What's next? :(

Home screen still looks the same. I hope this isn’t what it will really look like.

What changes are you expecting? iOS essentially looks the same as it did in 2007. Much like Android still looks the same and Windows still does too. The UI of an OS never has real significant changes in visuals. Even Samsung's new One UI, doesn't look all that much different than TouchWiz. Its simply improved. All these phones are gettign boring, but at least Samsung phones have features that keep the phone fresher longer. While Apple is just the same old same old.

Better include dedicated multitasking feature on the iPhone. Not just the iPad. Sick and tired of flipping back and forth and waiting for live feed streams to finish buffering and missing what happened. Especially sports. Why iPhone doesn’t have split screen or little video boxes appear while doing other things is beyond me.

iOS has dedicated multitasking control: double press the button or slide home and hold for a few moments. To keep running the stream in the backgound, open another tab in Safari (it used to work with YouTube too, I haven't tested lately).

No. That does not work on iPhone. iPad yes has one. But needs to allow more apps. iPhone not at all.

You brag about your phone so much, yet you don't even know what it does. Typical fan. Oh and to show i'm not a hypocrite, my Note 9 does many things I'm not aware of. But that is because it has a lot of features. The iPhone barely has any. Shouldn't be too hard to keep up.

Nothing too interesting, but any improvements over iOS 12 (AKA 11.5) are welcome. No iPad (borrowed from the Note) multitasking, no Pencil support, no picture in picture, no real new look to the OS, hopefully it’s very stable.

Samsung Fold is new. New to be the next note 7 after using for just 2 days.

TBH who did not expect a disaster with folding phones? Seriously.

Ugh I hope there is more like revamped UI, home screen etc. better multitasking on the iPhone especially larger ones. Split screen please. No point of such a great processor if it can’t do these simple tasks Android can. Stop worrying about older iPhones. I mean if people are still rocking iPhone 5s/6 then they should either upgrade or deal with it. Every year it should be one less supported device. iOS 13 should be iPhone 11, 10s, 10 and 8. That’s 4 years. iPhone 8 should be just fine as well but anything less then an 8 it’s do or die.

That’s an incredibly selfish perspective. There a a helluva lot of people around the globe - especially outside of the 1st world - that continue to use MUCH older phones, due to various different reasons... One of Apple’s best features is the longevity their devices have - the length of time their devices remain practical and usable. Doing what you suggest removes one more pillar of value from their devices to make them more like the competition. And of course I can just see the outrage should they actually decide to do as you suggest - there are enough people in the world already decrying “planned obsolescence” and other such BS and conspiracy theories, without Apple actually providing solid reason for them... No thanks.

STILL NO split screen view, let alone a multi window.. In the time of the greatest iPhone sales slump since the introduction of iPhone, Apple remains so full of their arrogant selves and the narrative that it can sell the same thing over again.

I highly doubt split screen would improve sales at all. In fact, I know it won't, because sales in Android land hasn't improved either.

Does it need to improve sales to just be a useful feature? Here is a fact. There are many buyers who do look for a phone of choice to have certain features. Example, notice how when Samsung drop SDcards from the S6, the sells went down. Then when they it back on the S7, the sales went back up. Even if you "think" they won't sell a whole lot more, they still could get sales from people who may have not bought the phone because a feature they want isn't available on that platform. That is why Windows Phone failed. It failed because the apps and features you can find on other platform and devices, Microsoft didn't have. Not everyone is stupidly loyal to a brand. If you think certain features are not important to someone, just because they aren't important to you, then that is classically stupid thinking. Not saying if Apple adds split-screen sales are gonna go through the roof. I am saying, there are Android users who love this feature, who would likely buy an iPhone if it had this feature, because this is a feature important to them. I wished it had split screen and a whole bunch of features Android has. Because for one you pay enough, two; I want you to enjoy what I enjoy and three, why the hell not?

Improved keyboard? Are they finally gonna put the numbers row on the same screen as the letters? Because if not, then there is nothign more to improve. After 10 years, having to switch to another screen to type numbers is completely stupid. But yet IOS is suppose to be easier to use. Are setting for apps, finally gonna be in the apps? If not, what speed improvements are they talking about? The only speed needed is taking things that take as many as 5 steps to complete, only take 3 or less. You know, like every other phone you can buy. I don't need things that don't really matter. Dark mode is just dumb. Phones have had that for quite awhile.

Hopefully its just not full of bugs like 12 is.
