iOS 7.1 makes iPhone 4 tolerable



By

Andrew Cunningham for Ars:
If you're sticking with the iPhone 4 for another year, iOS 7.1 makes performance tolerable enough that using the phone isn't unbearable.

That seems to sum it up nicely. The iPhone 4 is pretty old, but Apple kept selling it so it may not be that old to many users. They could have bought one as recently as last September. Technically it was even still on sale when iOS 7 was released. Thatís the downside of selling old hardware to meet price points. iOS 7.1 seems an honest attempt to make it OK, although, as the article states, this is as good as itís going to get. iPhone 4 users will likely want to stick with iOS 7.1.x until their next phone, which for many may mean an early upgrade or skipping iOS 8.
