Upgrade iPhone Speed | Hardware speed up iPhone

Upgrade your iPhone speed | Speed up you iPhone by hardware modification


I'm sure from what you know or someone told you that the iPhone speed is can't be upgraded. But I'm saying the otherwise.
I'm NOT talking about software tune-up shit. I'm talking about the hardware upgrade just like a computer by adding more RAM, change CPU or SSD.


Today I would like to share how the speed upgrade is possible. But the works can be only carried by an expert like me.

Because I get the non-stop people asking me this question:
"Is it the bigger storage of the iPhone and it will be lagger (slow)?"
The answer is NO.
Because the speed is entirely up to the memory chip.
Exactly like you buying a memory SDcard that have many different brand and speed.



And the memory chip of the iPhone is called NAND flash. As I said many times before, Apple doesn't make storage. They take the supplies from Sandisk, Toshiba, Hynix, or Samsung.

I know you guys expect all iPhone hardware is the totally same performance compare to the same model, but now I tell you it is NOT. That's why sometimes your friend's iPhone run better than yours. Not only in term of speed. The cellular or network performance is also different. You never know what you bought. Different batch and location can have differences.   


So back into topic.
Apple is smart... or I can say the suppliers of NAND too. They use a lower grade of NAND which is slower speed.

Lower Tech = Cheaper Cost.

Below is the comparison of 32GB and 256GB NAND.
The speed test is exactly the same as the iPhone 6S with A9 CPU and running PCIe.
I can say it's under a fair test. 


32GB NAND PCIe speed

256GB NAND PCIe speed
256GB speed test

As you can see from above.
32 GB is running an average speed of 48 MB/s (384Mbps)
256 GB is running an average speed of 67 MB/s (536Mbps)

It's about 40% faster.

The photo I show is only the writing speed. The reading speed is much more but I want to keep this article short.

So I'm not bothering to explain TLC and MLC different. Because what I'm doing today is to tell you that by changing the storage of the iPhone or iPad, the speed can be upgraded as well.

Please don't think the Toshiba is slower. Other brands are also slow if they are the low capacity storage type (16GB or 32GB).


AND
don't expect it's a very noticeable speedup. Because a lot of works are still depending on the CPU and the RAM especially when it comes to multitasking.

BUT
It's noticeable for video editing, loading a bunch of photos, compressing a file to send, loading game time decrease, transferring between PC, backup and more...

Below photos are our daily job.
iPhone 6S support 512GB
Have you seen 512 GB iPhone 6S selling in Apple?
