It has been a few days since Apple released the final version of iOS 9.3.3 to users, and that means those of you who use iPads and iPhones can now download the new software update anytime you want to. And a commonly given piece of advice at this time is that you update to the new firmware as soon as possible. However, if you’re a jailbreak user, this advice is not aimed at you for obvious reasons.

If the thought of updating your handset or tablet fills you with dread, that’s understandable considering the problems people have been facing with botched iOS updates over the last few years. Actually holding off on updating is not a bad idea if this has happened to you, and it may be better for you to wait and see it iOS 9.3.3 is any faster, or even any slower than iOS 9.3.2.

iOS 9.3.3 vs iOS 9.3.2 How do they Compare?

In the videos below you will find various different comparisons of iOS 9.3.2 and the final version of iOS 9.3.3, completed on a range of different devices from the iPhone 4s all the way up to the latest devices. And before you read on for an answer, I’ll remind you that the reason for these tests was to determine, which of the two iOS versions offered the most speed.

If you’re itching to find a quick answer without having to watch the videos below wait, you don’t have to watch them all. Why not just watch the one that corresponds to your device? If on the other hand you just want a quick spoiler, here’s what the creator of the videos and the conductor of the tests had to say about his findings:

Quick Results

Overall it seems like iOS 9.3.3 is faster than iOS 9.3.2. It manages to boot much faster on all of the devices I tested it on (except on the iPhone 4s). However, apps on the 4s do seems to open up just a little faster on the 4s, which is all important.

If you are considering iOS 9.3.3, from the testing that has been completed it seems as if it is a no brainer if you are using a version of iOS 9. I would have liked to have been able to have tested it against iOS 9.2.1, as it was pretty fast, but that is no longer possible. In fact, if you are using that version od iOS today, you may want to continue to use it.

So that’s it, iOS 9.3.3 is faster than iOS 9.3.2, but and only if jailbreaking is of importance to you. You may not want to upgrade from an earlier version as this will remove any chance (for the foreseeable future) of you being able to jailbreak your handset or tablet.

The Comparison Videos

In this first video, the iPhone 6s is used to compare both iOS 9.3.3 Vs iOS 9.3.2.

It is now the turn of the iPhone 6 and another comparison of the performance of iOS 9.3.3 and iOS 9.3.2.

Moving even further back in the device timeline, we have iOS 9.3.3 and iOS 9.3.2 going head to head on the iPhone 5s.
