All iPad Models Compared in Ultimate Boot Speed Test [Video]

Posted December 5, 2013 at 7:33pm by iClarified · 40138 views
Check out this video that compares the boot speed of the iPad 1 vs. iPad 2. vs. iPad 3 vs. iPad 4 vs. iPad Air vs. iPad mini 1 vs. iPad mini 2.

All seven iPads were freshly restored to the latest firmware possible (iOS 7.0.4 for everyone but the iPad 1), fully charged, with no SIM card inserted.

The counter was started from the exact moment each device received USB signal and stopped as soon as slide-to-unlock appeared.

it is a stupid test because all devices boot up fast when they are clean right after a restore.

Another stupid test. Maybe the test that i really want to see is which ones turn on faster on charge after they run out of battery. My iPad 3 takes forever

I don't own an ipad 4 since the air came out, both do good bur ipad air is slightly faster charging. What's stupid about the test? It proves how it adds up power to everything.

My iPad 3 also takes forever but its jailbroken and all 64GB are being used so thats that.

Just last night i got the iPad Air 128GB/Cellular and its sure does boots up fast, right now i started restoring from the iCloud all 64GB of Apps from my iPad 3 which will take a few hours and then I'll see how true this test is. One thing for sure is that right away you can feel its power comparing to the 3. The way i figured is that jailbreaking slows down our devices so i got the new iPhone 5S and the iPad Air so after i jailbreak, it will be as fast as my iPhone 5 and iPad 3 un jailbroken. ( I hope )
