iOS 4.2 GM features

If you’re an iPhone 3G user and worried about performance issues in the upcoming iOS 4.2 update then you should checkout the video after the jump.

Folks at TiPB have tested iOS 4.2 GM on an iPhone 3G to find out if the performance is better.

Back in June when Apple had released iOS 4, iPhone 3G users had reported that it had slowed down their iPhone, which has forced some of them to downgrade to iPhone OS 3.1.3 or try workarounds to make it faster.

Apple had fixed some of the performance issues in iOS 4.1, which was a lot more responsive than iOS 4.

TiPB had this to say after upgrading iPhone 3G with iOS 4.2 GM version:

iPhone 3G’s hardware isn’t as fast and it’s RAM is literally a quarter of iPhone 4’s but it did a decent job typing, scrolling, pinching, and zooming its way around iOS 4.2.

You can checkout the video to get a better idea:

Apple had seeded iOS 4.2 GM version to developers earlier in the week and is expected to release iOS 4.2 sometime this week.

Based on the video, the performance seems to be better. Let us know your take in the comments section below.
