Ratings and Reviews
SEEMS A GOOD TEST and very STANDARDISED.
Easy to do, run the app and tap the solitary 'CPU benchmark' option that appears. Also very thorough, when you investigate there's loads of separate sections of results afterward.
4 to 20 minutes it says - took about 10 mins or less on my ipad 4th gen (ipad 3,6 Apple call it). I made the screen auto-lock set to 'never' before running it second time, first time the system crashed. Also, knocked off all but the 'settings' app.
Since 2013 they separate out single core and multi-core scores. My ipad 4 got 1380 or so in the multi core score, so I could compare it, for reasons of interest and to see if it's worth upgrading to newer faster devices.
Freezing on iPhone 7
Worked flawlessly on my iPhone 7 before iOS update 11.2.1 and now freezes on any of the tests.
Seems a little suspicious that this has happened after the recent reports of Apple throttling cpu on devices and this latest update supposed to add the iPhone 7 to the list of devices that will now be throttled.
Three star rating to see if the developers can find away around this “bug”
Apple Watch app
Need an Apple Watch app for testing watch processor speeds. iPhones and iPads are powerful enough for almost anything but Apple watch speeds are very important as they are much less powerful currently but still have demanding apps and software to run
