The new iPhone 4S arrived this morning. After a few minutes transferring everything over from the iPhone 4 and playing with Siri, decided to try out Drone Ace and make sure everything was working as it should.
The performance of the video feed seems to be really fast. There are few new frameworks and methods available in iOS 5, so I’m going to be looking at improving the performance even more. The new image processing frameworks should really enhance the speed as the calculations will be happening on the GPU. The iPhone 4S is using the same processor as the iPad 2, Apple A5. With the iPhone 4S, Apple has under-clocked the CPU to 800Mhz from 1Ghz but really couldn’t tell much difference. Overall the new phone seems a lot more responsive in all regards, without the small hiccups that you get on the iPhone 4. Pretty impressive piece of equipment.
