iPhone 4 owners: Has iOS 7.1 improved performance?

Has iOS 7.1 improved performance on your iPhone 4?

One of the features Apple lists for the just-released iOS 7.1 software update is "Improved performance for iPhone 4". That's great since previously performance was bad enough it had many people desperate to downgrade. That's nothing new, of course. The bottom end of the upgrade list is often excruciating on the x.0 and picks up on the x.1 or x.2. So it was with the iPhone 3G in its day, now it is with the iPhone 4. So, is it really any better?

iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c: Should you upgrade?

When a new iPhone is introduced - or this year when two new iPhones are introduced - one of the toughest decisions to make is whether or not to upgrade to the latest and the greatest. If money is no object, it won't matter. If you're due an upgrade on contract, it comes down to whether or not the new features in the iPhone 5c or iPhone 5s are compelling enough to be worth $100 or $200 or more to you.

So what are the pros and cons of upgrading to the iPhone 5c or iPhone 5s, and when does the cost get overwhelmed by the value? Let's take a look...

History of iPhone: From revolution to what comes next

Apple introduced the original iPhone back in 2007, instantly obsoleting every other smartphone on the planet in every way that mattered. Over the next two years, with the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS, Apple increased functionality while simultaneously lowering price, taking the smartphone fully out of the niche and making it mainstream. The iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S continued that trend, bringing support for broader carriers and faster speeds, better displays and new, natural language interfaces. iPhone took manufacturing to new levels and the screen to new heights, but most importantly it set the stage for what's coming next - iOS 7 and the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, and more. Before we embark on that brave new future, however, we're going to take a look back. This is the story of Apple's phone. Of Steve Jobs' phone. Of the iPhone. And for many of us, our phone.

Steve Jobs returned to the WWDC keynote stage on June 7, 2010. He'd introduced the iPad earlier in the year, and kicked things off with an update on how it, and the App Store had been doing.
