Apple’s 2.5-year-old iPhone XR knocks off the new iPhone 12 after the iOS 14.5.1 update in terms of performance.

After launching the iOS 14.5 update, Apple delivered a new security patch, iOS 14.5.1. Users started to like the update and gave some excellent reviews. But, many users complained that the iOS 14.5.1 update has severely degraded the performance score on the iPhone 11, iPhone 12. Which was far better than the iPhone XR.

The iOS 14.5.1 software update is now live and is eligible for iPhones worldwide. The update adds one new feature, the ability to pair your device with AirTag. But this unintentionally seems like a huge performance boost for iPhone XR.

YouTuber Nick Ackermann compared the iPhone 12, iPhone 11, and iPhone XR against each other, operating on the same version of iOS. Because of the newest hardware, it was expected that the iPhone 12 would take the lead. But surprisingly, the iPhone XR managed to beat it in both synthetic and real-world performance.
