Ratings and Reviews
Good for new, bad for old (6 years old)
I'm happy to say that I am using the iPad 2017! So I was excited to see what it was capable of. It scored as expected!
(For this next part I'm exaggerating)
How ever, i decided to try it on my old iPad 2...it didn't even load. 🤦🏻♂️ but than finely I got it to work! (EXAGGERATED) then suddenly I started to smell something! I looked over and my iPad had burst into flames!!! (It did get pretty hot)
Please optimize your apps for newer devices
I get random crashes on the iPhone XR, benchmarking is a bit finicky on whether it will work or not
Cross platform? It only shows Apple devices after the latest update.
