iOS 3.2.1 Improves iPad Wi-Fi Performance [Chart]

Posted by · 13950 views
Padgadget has completed a series of follow up tests on the iPad's Wi-Fi performance after upgrading to the 3.2.1 firmware.

They tested both the iPad Wi-Fi only and the iPad 3G using a series of six tests at different distances and with varying interference.

In order to keep things simple, we focused on speed. The test is a mix of content download as well as raw http performance tests via, repeated 10 times for each test, and averaged out (normalized to a scale going from 0 to 100, 100 representing the best throughput we could measure).

Their results show a performance improvement of at least 20% using the 3.2.1 firmware. Take a look at the chart below...

Why is this chart shows from 0 to 100? wireless signal strength is always calculated from 0db to -100db. not other way around. the closer ur to 0 the better. the bigger the number = the worsen signal

after 2nd reading, why is this test based on speed? wtf!? what iPad need is more range(wireless signal strength) not the freaking speed! they dont show the signal strength test! this is soooo FAKE! and Apple approve this? must be their marketing/damage control over antenna shits.

I agree. A signal test would be sweet (oh well)

I think it's setup that way to show percent improvement

I've got a new iPad Wi-Fi + 3G arriving tomorrow. I assume it will come with iOS 3.2 installed not the newly released iOS 3.2.1. If it does come with 3.2 pre-installed, I can use the existing Spirit jailbreak for now and update to iOS 3.2.1 when the 'new' Spirit jailbreak becomes available? Problem is, now iOS 3.2.1 is out and Apple has stopped signing iOS 3.2, if I ever need to restore the iPad's operating system, I'll be forced to restore / update to iOS 3.2.1 as I never managed to get an iPad soon enough to capture it's iOS 3.2 'SHSH blobs'.
