iOS 5 vs 4.3.5 – SunSpider 0.9.1 benchmark

October 13, 2011

I’ve just had the chance to run the SunSpider JavaScript benchmark on the iPad 2 browser (Safari) just to check if there was any improvement in the performance caused by the iOS 5 update, so here are the results:

As you can see iOS 4.3.5 completed the test in 2025.5 ms and iOS 5 did it in 1815.3 ms, which is a really nice improvement over the previous version.

By the way, I’ve also had the chance to run this test in the first generation iPad (running the iOS 5 GM) and the result was not bad considering it’s hardware: 3091.9 ms
