iOS 9 on the iPhone 4S: A stay of execution, nothing more

Tech / gadget news

Jolteon is much, much faster than an iPhone 4S.
Andrew Cunningham

The S in iPhone 4S used to stand for "speed," but it's been a couple of years since that was true. iOS 8 wasn't kind to Apple's oldest supported iPhone, which made it even more of a surprise when the company announced in June that the 4S would be hanging around for another year.

That's mostly good news for people still using the four-year-old phone that Apple sold all the way up through late 2014. It doesn't get all of iOS 9's new stuff and it's not nearly as fast as an iPhone 6 or 6S, but competing Android phones from 2011 are all distant memories at this point. This is the longest Apple has ever supported an iPhone, and iOS 9 manages to run about as well as iOS 8 did on the same hardware.

The bad stuff about iOS 8 hangs around, though. Apple keeps adding features that look great on large-screened phones but just make the 4S' 3.5-inch screen feel more and more cramped. Performance does not return to iOS 7 levels, but instead continues to hover near iOS 8 levels. It's not a bad update, but it feels less like a rejuvenation and more like a stay of execution.

Stellar Nursery R136 in the Tarantula Nebula iPhone 4 Cases

I adore images from outer space and this is no exception. Here's an iPhone protective case with it so your phone doesn't have to go naked! Click the image to try this amazing design with your name or initials... This is one of my (HightonRidley's) designs with the raw astronomy pictures enhanced by me to bring out their beauty.


tagged with: stars, galaxies, astronomy, galaxy, phone protectors, phone skins, phone cases, dorneblmc, stellar nursery, 30 doradus nebula, massive stars, large magellanic cloud, star cluster, amazing hubble images, phone shells, phone covers, r136, tarantula nebula

Galaxies, Stars and Nebulae series Hundreds of brilliant blue stars wreathed by warm, glowing clouds in appear in this the most detailed view of the largest stellar nursery in our local galactic neighborhood. The massive, young stellar grouping, called R136, is only a few million years old and resides in the 30 Doradus (or Tarantula) Nebula, a turbulent star-birth region in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), a satellite galaxy of our Milky Way.
There is no known star-forming region in our galaxy as large or as prolific as 30 Doradus. Many of the diamond-like icy blue stars are among the most massive stars known. Several of them are over 100 times more massive than our Sun. These hefty stars are destined to pop off, like a string of firecrackers, as supernovas in a few million years. The image, taken in ultraviolet, visible, and red light by Hubble's Wide Field Camera 3, spans about 100 light-years.
The movement of the LMC around the Milky Way may have triggered the massive cluster's formation in several ways. The gravitational tug of the Milky Way and the companion Small Magellanic Cloud may have compressed gas in the LMC. Also, the pressure resulting from the LMC plowing through the Milky Way's halo may have compressed gas in the satellite. The cluster is a rare, nearby example of the many super star clusters that formed in the distant, early universe, when star birth and galaxy interactions were more frequent.
The LMC is located 170,000 light-years away and is a member of the Local Group of Galaxies, which also includes the Milky Way. The Hubble observations were taken Oct. 20-27, 2009. The blue color is light from the hottest, most massive stars; the green from the glow of oxygen; and the red from fluorescing hydrogen.
